Early Termination Of Probation

Early Termination Of Probation

If you are currently on court-ordered probation, it may be possible to get off of supervision early.  If you are on community control (house arrest), it may be possible to “roll over” or convert your supervision to straight probation.  If you have completed at least half of the court-ordered term and have completed other special conditions (e.g. community service hours, classes, drug treatment, restitution), then you may be a candidate. 

As a defense attorney since 1995 in the Tampa / Hillsborough court system, Thomas Maiello is able to evaluate a particular client’s situation and determine if there is a viable chance to persuade a judge to terminate the probation early (or, in the case of community control, to “roll over” to straight probation).  Tom is usually able to file the appropriate documents and schedule a court hearing within a short period of time. 

Your probation or community control officer may tell you that they will oppose your attempt at early termination and recommend that you be kept on supervision.  Remember, the judge makes the final decision—not the probation officer.  An experienced attorney may be able to make the difference.
