Probation in NYC occurs after someone has been convicted of a crime. Someone is placed on probation in lieu of a jail sentence or prison sentence. The type of crime dictates the length of the probation period. For example, the standard probation period is 2 to 5 years, and up to 10 years for a sex crime in New York City.
