In certain instances, a Court may adjourn the sentencing of an individual convicted of a crime for up to one year from the date of conviction and place the offender under interim probation supervision. This serves as a trial period to help determine if the offender might be successful on probation. If successful during the interim period, when the individual returns to court, they are then generally sentenced to a traditional term of probation supervision rather than being incarcerated. If the offender is not successful during the interim supervision period, supervision may be terminated and the individual may be sentenced to incarceration.
