Do I Have to Complete the Entire Probation Time?

By Janet Portman, Attorney
Judges can, but often don't, cut probation short.

Most of the time, a person’s period of probation must be completed. In rare situations, where the probation department feels that there is no need for continuing supervision because of the probationer’s exemplary record, the probationer can convince the prosecution to reopen the case, go back to court, and tell the judge that it’s not necessary to keep probation in place.
