What is the difference between probation and parole?
There is a difference between parole and probation. You might wind up with a sentence of probation, which is a penalty of being supervised for a period of time. Even if you wind up with a municipal court case, you could be on probation. If you wind up with a pre-trial intervention, you will likely be on probation to avoid jail time. Parole, on the other hand, is something that happens after you’ve served a sentence in jail where you might be on parole for a period of time, which makes sure that you stay out of trouble, and if you stray, they can bring you back in front of a judge to revoke your parole and put you back in jail because you violated your terms of parole.
