I was convicted of my first offense 2 years ago. The charges were felony burglary. I have since completed my 15 weekends, paid all fines and completed my community service. I have been in compliance with my PO and have not been in violation.
Might be a good motion for early term based on your whole situation.

Probation shortened is a possibility. You should sit diwn with a local defense attorney and go through all the factors with them. It helps if all your costs, fines and restitution are paid first.
At this time there is no way to reduce charges after you've either been found guilty or pled to them.
Please excuse my brevity and any typos as answers are often given using a cellular phone.
Yes. You can file a motion for early termination of probation. Good luck.
