Detroit, MI asked in Criminal Law for Michigan

Q: How long does an early discharge of probation take after paperwork is sent to judge?

My probation officer sent the judge a request for an early discharge and i also have my POs blessing as he wrote a nice statement for me. Im very anxious to get the call but it just hasnt come...

Also are the odds a lot better that the judge will approve it with my PO recommendation.

A: You will likely be scheduled with another court appearance so the judge can address this on the record. It is not a given and you would be wise to have an attorney represent you at that hearing.

As to your second question, yes. It is always better to have the blessing/approval of your probation officer.
