Probation Services

Cheney Municipal Court Probation provides probation services for adult misdemeanor criminal defendants.

What is Probation


When a defendant is found/pleads guilty or is placed on a diversion program in Municipal Court, the judge may or may not require the defendant be on probation monitoring. If the defendant is placed on probation, either supervised or unsupervised, the defendant can expect to schedule a probation appointment at the court clerk's window immediately following sentencing.

At the probation appointment an intake interview will be conducted. During intake, the defendant will be advised of all probation conditions and necessary referrals.

Types of Probation


Supervised


If the defendant is placed on "supervised" probation, a risk assessment will be done to determine how often the defendant will be required to see the probation officer in person, versus phone or mail contact. Defendant's may be subject to random urinalysis drug/alcohol testing conducted  on-site or  referred to an outside agency.

Supervised defendants are often required to complete an MRT program facilitated by Cheney Probation. These classes meet weekly and can be either group or individual sessions. 

Unsupervised


If the defendant is placed on "unsupervised" probation, he/she will not need to return to the probation office unless there is a probation violation.

Monitoring Defendants


Probation Services also monitor defendants who have entered into a Stipulated Order of Continuance (SOC) agreement and defendants who are placed on pretrial release conditions.
