In Florida, the courts have wide discretion when it comes to granting of denying a Motion for Early Termination of Probation. Different judges have different policies and requirements governing when they will grant such motions. Broward County criminal attorney Antonio D. Quinn, Esq. has a working relationship with many Broward judges and prosecutors and is familiar with many of their practices. Under Florida law, a person is eligible to apply for early termination of probation even if the court stated that early termination would not be granted in the original judgment. While not required to grant a Motion for Early Termination of Probation, a judge is required to at least hear and consider the Motion if all of the statutory requirements have been satisfied. It is important to always maintain a good relationship with your probation officer, because a probation officer does have the ability to prevent someone from having their probation successfully terminated early.
Sometimes in lieu of granting a Motion for Early Termination of probation, judges will convert to administrative probation. When a person is on administrative probation they do not have to report to a probation officer, but they must still not be re-arrested before the term of probation ends.
Depending upon the charge that you were on probation for, if you were not adjudicated guilty by the court then you may be eligible to have to record of your arrest "sealed" by the court. Once a criminal record is sealed, an arrest no longer becomes a searchable public record for most purposes. Broward criminal attorney Antonio D. Quinn, Esq. has had the court seal many of his client's cases and he can advise you on whether or not you qualify to have your case sealed.
If you believe that you may qualify to petition the court for an Early Termination of Probation, then it is important not to delay in contacting Quinn Law, P.A. as soon as possible so that your supervision will end as soon as is possible.
