General Overview

The Ashtabula Municipal Court’s Adult Probation Department oversees all defendants placed on probation as the result of a traffic or criminal conviction. It is the goal of probation to monitor compliance with the sentence imposed by the Judge, thereby reducing involvement of further criminal activity. Probation Officers assess the needs of the defendant and monitor the compliance of their terms of probation, as determined by the Court.  Conditions of Probation can include paying restitution, drug, alcohol assessments and mental health assessments, counseling, community service and theft diversion programs.. Defendants are assigned to a Probation Officer who will supervise the conditions of their probation and provide assistance in complying with those conditions. The standard rules of probation are provided for your convenience, but you are urged to remember that these are the standard conditions, and the Judge may impose additional conditions.
