What is the difference between probation and parole?
The main difference between the two is that probation (or Community Control) is a court sanction of community supervision in lieu of a jail. Parole (or Post-Release Control) is granted by the Adult Parole Authority on FELONY cases after an offender has served a set prison term, and then released under certain guidelines.
