Petitions for Early Probation Termination
Knowledgeable Santa Ana Criminal Defense Lawyer
State law allows for anyone on probation to petition the judge to end or
modify their probation. A successful petition will enable you free yourself
from the restrictions a probation sentence places on your life. You will
need a trusted Santa Ana criminal defense attorney with a considerable
understanding of the law to examine your case and put together the strongest
case possible for your early termination of probation.
What you need at this time is a board certified criminal defense specialist
who can fight for your probation termination. At The Law Offices of Jerry
Schaffer, Jr. my firm is fully committed to criminal defense matters and
I have been providing aggressive defense for those charged with offenses
for almost 20 years. Look to a former Senior Orange County Deputy District
Attorney when you need help.
Qualifications for Probation Termination
Our firm can begin by collecting information on your conviction and assure
all relevant information is in front of the judge. You petition can include
information regarding your offense, the probationer, letters of recommendation,
proof of compliance with the terms of probation, and other material.
To qualify for an early probation termination certain requirements must be met:
- Your conviction must have been in state rather than federal court
- You are not currently charged with another criminal offense or on probation
for another crime
- You must currently be on probation and, preferably, you have served at
least half the term
- All fines, restitution, mandatory programs, community service, and classes
have been satisfied
Typically, an early termination takes between 6 and 12 weeks which is why
you should contact a Santa Ana criminal defense lawyer from my firm as
soon as possible to begin your petition.
