This legislation, part of Georgia's ongoing criminal justice reforms, would amend state laws related to active probation supervision by updating tools used for evaluation of probationers. The legislation provides specific information that the court may consider when determining the financial obligations of probationers. Additionally, the legislation would allow the court to convert fines, statutory surcharges, and probation supervision fees to community service.
