Columbus Probation and Parole Laws
Over the years, the Columbus and Ohio court systems have been increasingly issuing probation and parole penalties to offenders arrested of crimes seen by the court as not being of serious risk to greater society. Probation and Parole are alternative penalties that both decrease the overall cost of government expenditures, decrease the number of defendants in jail, and provide offenders with more accommodating penalties. In many circumstances, offenders to probation or parole may live relatively normal lives with their family and friends. While Probation and Parole are great alternatives to jail time, they require the defendant to follow strict guidelines.
