Hello

This is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.

Yes, shock probation is available for non violent felons and misdemeanors. Sex offenders are not eligible. Generally, the shock probation is given after an offender has served at least 6 months of their sentence.

Please let me know here if you have other questions or need clarification. Otherwise a Positive rating ensures i get credit for my time.
