I understand that there is no PO monitoring you, but what does this mean exactly?
Supervised probation -
You check in with someone monthly.
You pay a monthly fee.
Unsupervised probation -
You stay out of trouble on your own steam.
You do not pay a monthly probation fee.
Oklahoma county actually has four different kinds of probation.
Unsupervised probation means you have no one to report to and as long as you pay your court costs and don't pick up a new crime you will be fine. This is rarely offered but can be offered for misdemeanor or felony probation.
DA probation is supervised by the District Attorney office. This means that you go to the window the day you plea and fill out the form that gives you the rules that you must follow. You do not have to report to anyone but you have to pay $40 every month while you are on the "supervised" portion of your sentence. This is probation for all misdemeanors and some felonies.
DOC probation is supervised by the Department of Corrections. You must report to a probation officer every month and follow the rules. You must pay $40 per month to DOC plus $40 per month to the DA office. This is felony probation only.
Community Sentencing probation is a special kind of DOC probation that requires you to report to a probation officer monthly and requires that you complete a lot of classes that are set out based on the probation plan recommended from your assessment. You must pay $50 per month to DOC plus $40 per month to the DA office. This is felony probation only.
only thing to add to Keegan and Kevin ' s answers is that even if given unsupervised probation, you would still be required to pay the DA'S office 40 per month for the term of probation but no more than 2 years. instead of "probation fees " is called a reimbursement fee
