The Robina Institute of Criminal Law and Criminal Justice is pleased to present a new brief,“Probation in-Depth: The Length of Probation Sentences,” by Robina Institute Research Attorney, Alexis Watts. The brief draws from an October 2014 the Robina Institute of Criminal Law and Criminal Justice publication, Profiles in Probation Revocation: Examining Legal Framework in 21 States. Building from that report, this informational brief pulls together the statutes that govern the length of probation sentences in each of the twenty-one jurisdictions studied, as well as the legal framework for early termination or extension of the probation term.
