Prison – It can be a great learning experience. When you’re caught with drugs or alcohol, you will be sentenced to prison. You have a chance to study in a university if you’re a graduate student or take college courses while you are in prison.
Community Service – Getting involved in the community while you are on probation is a great way to keep your record clean. The importance of the criminal justice system is apparent when they sentence you to probation and/or community service. Courts aren’t trying to throw the book at you from the get-go. You have some leeway. It’s also good for your mental health. If you want to avoid losing your home, you can still help the community with things like this. You may get to do volunteer work in your community, which can be a great way to help out.
Crime – You can receive a felony conviction and have it put on your record. But it will remain there for as long as you live in prison, so you will need to learn how to live with it. While you are on probation, you can work with a community service organization to try to teach others about making the right decisions, and being safe with drugs and other illegal substances.
Drug/Alcohol – Prison is not a place where you can get away from learning. You will need to participate in classes and/or counseling, as well as use your time in prison to learn from your mistakes. As you go through your probationary period, you’ll learn what works for you and what doesn’t. After that, you can decide to return to school, or start going to rehab.
