Arkansas lawyers helping motivated individuals on probation gain early release
Arkansas rewards individuals who have been motivated to fulfill all of the requirements of their probation. There are several factors you generally need to meet before being granted release from your probation sentence early. Some of those factors include:
- Paying all fines and restitution
- Completing all required counseling sessions
- Completing all community service
- Maintaining a good relationship with your probation officer
- Completing at least half of your probation sentence
When you file a petition to be released from probation early, a judge will decide whether or not to grant your request. Besides having fulfilled the above requirements, a judge will also consider if your probation officer supports the decision, if you have attempted to find work, or if you have taken steps to make yourself more marketable, such as attending classes. It will be important that you properly present your request to the judge and ensure that you paint as full a picture as possible.
