Misdemeanor or “informal” probation does not involve oversight by a probation officer. Felony or “formal” probation is overseen by a probation office. Probation can include classes, community service, drug testing and jail time.
An alleged probation violation is an extremely serious matter that must be handled immediately. A person with an alleged probation violation, even for a minor reason, can be picked up by law enforcement and put into jail to await a probation violation hearing. The prosecutor will likely argue to find you in violation and increase your original sentence. It is therefore critical that anyone facing a probation violation have a skilled criminal defense lawyer with experience defending probation violations.
