We Petition for Early Termination of Probation
If you were convicted of a crime in Philadelphia and were sentenced to probation in lieu of jail time, you know that life on probation isn’t easy. Depending on the conditions of your probation, you may be required to pay hefty fines, submit to random drug and alcohol testing at your own expense, meet with your probation officer any time they wish, and more. While these conditions may be better than a jail term, they can certainly put undue stress on anyone who has to abide by them. Luckily, in some cases, attorneys can file a motion for early termination of probation on your behalf so that you can end your probation early and get on with your life.

How long have you been on probation in Philadelphia? Whether you’ve been on probation for months or years, it can seem like an eternity. You may be asked to perform community service, go to counseling, wear a GPS ankle monitor, or almost anything else a judge can dream up. In most cases, you’ll be paying out of pocket for any counseling or drug testing, and depending on your crime, you may not be able to drive a car as another condition of your probation. When coupled with frequent meetings with your probation officer, these conditions can cause problems at work or at home. Not to mention that any slip-up could result in you being sent to jail. Filing a motion for early termination of probation may be your chance to put the nightmare of probation behind you and start your new life with a clean slate.

What makes someone more likely to receive early termination of probation? Lots of factors can make a judge decide it would be a benefit to society to grant you termination of probation. The courts will look at the underlying offense that put you on probation, your age when the crime was committed, how long you’ve been on probation, and your compliance with the conditions of your probation (among other things) before deciding whether to grant you early probation termination. The attorneys at Fuschino Law can analyze your case and determine your chances of getting off probation early.
Generally, non-violent criminals are much more likely to have their motion for early termination of probation approved. In addition, the younger you were when the crime was committed, the longer you’ve been on probation, and the more compliant you’ve been with the terms of your probation, the better your chances will be of receiving early termination of probation. If your crime was recent, you were arrested for other crimes during the term of your probation, or you were arrested for a violent crime, your motion to terminate probation may not be granted. Seeking a motion to terminate probation at the state or local level is one thing; being granted an early termination of federal probation may be more difficult. Only qualified lawyers like the ones at Fuschino Law in Philadelphia can examine your case and find out if it would make sense to file a motion for early termination of probation on your behalf.
