The amount of the bail is based on the seriousness of the crime.

Probation

Probation is a conditional sentence instead of serving time in prison. If you are placed on probation, you must follow the conditions of the probation. Some of these may include completing community service hours, paying fines and keeping court appointments. If you violate any of the conditions, your probation could be revoked; you will be arrested and you will return to prison.
