You don't say much about the terms of your sentence so a specific answer is impossible. But a Judge has discretion to amend a sentence and terminate the terms early if the facts warrant it. Usually, a Judge requires at least half of the sentence be served with great success before a request to
modify or terminate will be considered. It appears you are off to a positive start considering you were allowed the benefit of house arrest rather than full incarceration. That fact suggests you made an impact on the Judge at sentencing. List all of the positive things you have achieved since sentencing and your lawyer will try to put those facts to good use before the Judge.
