Is Probation Hard To Deal With?

- WF, Texas

Answer:

Probation requires following rules. Do that, and it's easy. But following rules can be hard for many people charged with a crime. Probation also requires following a set schedule and doing things such as community service that take away from a person's free time. If restitution is owed, there may be money issues.

Although, it is important to remember that probation cannot be revoked for failure to pay as long as a person is working or trying to find a job. Also, not every probation officer and probationer get along. People with drug or alcohol issues may have difficulty in not using drugs or alcohol.

The best way to make probation easier is to develop a support network with friends and family. The worst day on probation is better then the best day spent in jail.
