LOS PROBADOS

“Los probados” are people who have committed a violation of the law and are given the opportunity to do 6 months of community service* so as not to lose their freedom. This is known as probation law.

*Community Service is an order made by a Court as an alternative to prison. If somebody is sentenced to a Community Service Order, will have to work unpaid until the order is satisfactorily completed.

The probation Law for the suspension of trial contributes to a more humane response in the criminal justice system. In addition, the community service is intended to help the community.
