“Andrew, one of the question that we wanted to get a little more information on is…how is probation involved in a criminal case?”

Andrew Dósa – Criminal Defense Attorney – Alameda County, CA

“Typically, probation comes in toward the end of a case that is just beginning with a defendant having no criminal history. If that person has a record, and is still on probation, then probation will weigh in, perhaps. They may even be the ones who recommended that a probation violation be filed along with the new complaint. While that case is going on, if there is a pre-sentencing report that is generated as some counties require, probation begins with that, and they are, typically, following after the case comes to a resolution. They’ll do the sentencing report for the Judge to help recommendations with sentencing. Between those two dates, the outset, with a criminal past, they may be involved but loosely involved. Just mostly monitoring the procedures.”
