When a person is placed on probation they can avoid having to serve additional custody time but must follow the terms of probation imposed by the judge. Some common terms of probation require that you remain drug or alcohol free, they can also require participation in drug or alcohol or anger management counseling, perform community service and obey all laws. You also give up your right to freedom from searches of your residence, person, car and belongings. People on probation in California usually have to report back to the judge as instructed to give the judge progress reports. If a person fails to comply with the terms of their probation the judge can impose additional terms including additional jail time.
