Probation is something that occurs after a person has been convicted of a crime. Probation is given in lieu of a prison sentence. The length of probation can be different for different crimes but the conditions will mostly be set by a judge. If a client does not like a condition they can have an attorney try to get the conditions modified or deleted. Early release can be obtained by individuals who diligently follow all of the conditions of their probation. For probation cases in New York, contact NYC probation attorney Paul D. Petrus, Jr. by phone at 212-564-2440 or through his website to schedule your free consultation.
