Q) What is the difference between probation and parole?

A) Probation is a sentence a criminal defendant may serve upon being found guilty of a crime, instead of serving time in a jail or prison.  Whereas, parole is the release of a prisoner under supervised conditions until his or her sentence is completed.  Although the timing and circumstances of each are different, the rules and restrictions of both are similar.  Some of the common conditions include regularly reporting to a probation/parole officer, refraining from alcohol, drugs and criminal activity, remaining employed and attending counseling or treatment.
