    Speak Up! - View Question #17194

    printer friendly version

    Question: I know someone who is on probation and on the run, that person is going to be turning 18 in a week or two and I am wondering what happens after that person turns 18 what happens if he/she did not turn him/herself in before turning 18?


    Probation is an alternative to jail time where a person is released with certain conditions.  The court sets the conditions for each person entering into probation that may include reporting weekly or monthly to a probation officer, paying court costs, drug testing, having to be home at certain times, going to school every day, etc. However, in every case there is a requirement that the person stay out of trouble. 

    For juveniles, probation ends when they turn 18. A juvenile who violates probation before it is completed is subject to having the probation revoked, extended or having to comply with additional conditions. This means that if a person on probation refuses to check in with a probation officer or violates the terms of court ordered probation then they can be returned to "jail" or whatever consequence the court may order.  Juvenile Probation may end when the juvenile turns 18, but the consequences of violating probation may not.  The consequences may also depend on the severity of the original crime violated by the juvenile.
