Probation Office

Misdemeanor Cases

The Effingham County Probation Office supervises "misdemeanor" probation cases. These are cases sentenced in Effingham County State Court, Springfield Municipal Court, and The City of Guyton Municipal Court. On occasion, an Effingham County Superior Court Judge may reduce a felony charge to a misdemeanor charge, which will result in the defendant in that case being supervised by this office.

If you were not sentenced in these courts, please contact the originating court for questions about your sentence. This office does not supervise juveniles, nor does it supervise adults on felony probation.


Our reporting hours are Monday through Friday from 8 to 11 a.m. and 1 to 4 p.m. You are given a date at each appointment for the following month which prints up on your payment receipt, and you are also provided with an appointment card. The payment window closes at 4 p.m. Please note that there are no appointments between the hours of 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. As always do not just show up on any given day and time and expect to be seen.
