Probation in NYC Criminal Cases

Probation is a a type of community supervision in which the person placed on probation is supervised by a probation officer in the county where the conviction occurred. This supervision may require the person placed on probation to check in on a repeating basis, submit to drug testing, complete therapy, stay arrest-free, and follow other terms.

Probation can last for 2 - 3 years for a misdemeanor, or 3-5 years for a felony. Probation violations frequently occur when the person on probation fails to report, gets arrested again, or is found to be abusing drugs or alcohol, or otherwise violates the terms and conditions of their probation.
