What if I am on probation or parole?

If you are someone who is in jail as a suspected probation or parole violator, in addition to the new charges you are facing, it is likely that a hold has been placed on you at the request of the probation or parole department. In such situations, it is unlikely that you'll be released from jail until you have completed proceedings on the new charges and have dealt with the claimed violation at either a probation violation or parole revocation hearing.
