If placed on ten years post release supervision in new york state is it possible to be released from it at an earlier date?

Glens Falls, NY |

I have already served 28 months of the term and I am curious to see if it is possible to be released after serving half the term. I have completed all required courses and classes after my release. Also, I have maintained steady employment with promotions after 3 days of release.

  1. It is possible but difficult. How do you have 10 years? Did you receive consecutive sentences? Usually it's a 5 year maximum for PRS.
