Advanced Sentencing: Probation

There are over 80,000 people on probation in North Carolina. As a result, probationary sentences and probation violations are a big part of the daily work of the state court system. This one-day program is designed to help judges manage that workload by crafting probationary sentences that are lawful and effective in achieving their intended result. Judges will leave the course better able to avoid common sentencing errors, and with an improved understanding of how Community Corrections (Probation) administers their judgments. We will also review the complicated and ever-changing landscape of what a court may do in response to certain violations of probation after Justice Reinvestment.

Specific topics to be addressed include:

  • Quick dips
  • Confinement in response to violation (CRV)
  • Split sentences
  • Substance abuse treatment at DART-Cherry and Black Mountain
  • Probation modifications and extensions
  • Absconding
