Felony probation in New York is for five years. The intensity of the supervision will depend on the seriousness of the crime and how the judge sees the case. Many people are sentenced to "splits" that menas they will do six months in jail then when released they will be subject to five years of probation.

One of the main problems with violating felony probation is the amount of exposure one has to a long prison term. If you just started probation and have been rearrested you will not fare too well in front of the judge. This is because many judges see probation as a secodn chance and the only break you will receive. Another problem comes into play when probation decides to issue you a warrant because you have not complied with the terms of the agrrement.

Being arrested again and failing to follow the orders of your probation officers are the main ways that many probationers get into trouble and end up returning to jail.
