I was convicted a violent felony and got released from jail (time served) in 08/05/2016, I was sentenced to 3 years formal probation.
However, I recently applied for a job and the background report came back and it shows that the "deposition date" was 07/8/2016.
Does that mean I'll be off probation in July instead of August?
Probation starts on the sentencing date, not the day you complete the jail time you served as a condition of probation. However, it's always best to check with your probation officer or your lawyer, instead of relying on an answer from a stranger on the internet who knows nothing about your case.
This answer is a general discussion of legal principles by a California lawyer. It does not create an attorney-client relationship. Free initial consultation applies only to individuals with current or potential criminal charges in Butte County, California and adjoining counties.
Your probation ends 3 years from the date you were sentenced, not the date you completed your jail time.
My response is for informational purposes only. It does constitute legal advice. No attorney-client is created. If you desire legal advice, you should contact me or another attorney to speak directly.
