When I was put on probation, a lot of things changed. My life seems like it’s on hold because there are a lot of things I can’t do. Now that I’m on probation I’m not legally supposed to leave the county. Another thing I can’t do now that i’m on probation is have a certain amount of people at my house. There is a whole list of things I can’t do and if I go to court and my probation report isn’t good they add more guidelines to my probation.
What I learned from this experience is that I have to be smarter about what I do and how I do it. Another thing I learned from the experience is to go with my first instinct because it’s usually right. Something else I learned is that jail and probation is designed to keep you going back to jail so they can make money. One more thing I learned is to not do something I told myself I wasn’t gonna do.
Something other people should know about probation is that once you’re on it it’s hard to get off. It’s only hard to get off because it’s like There are a lot of things so small that could get you in trouble. One more thing people should know about probation is there are different types that are stricter than others. There is formal probation and informal probation. Informal probation can be taken away from your record, formal probation can’t. I just wanna let you guys know about probation, so that you don’t have to experience it.
