When an individual is arrested for a crime, that person will likely appear before a judge. At that court date, if the individual cannot afford an attorney, then he or she will be appointed a public defender.
Usually at the first court hearing, the defendant will offer a plea or request a preliminary hearing. While many of the events of an initial court hearing may seem to be a formality, it is important for any individual charged with a crime to have an experienced lawyer on their side.

Parole and probation are different types of criminal supervision after sentencing. Parole is supervision of an inmate released from jail.
Probation, on the other hand, is supervision that is given to a defendant either instead of jail time or in addition to jail time. Both probation and parole, however, can be revoked if the individual breaks the terms of the parole or probation.
If you have any questions about parole or probation, contact the Champaign-Urbana criminal defense lawyers of Tom Bruno at 217-328-6000.
