Judge is Beth harlan.
There is no "typical" time period since judges vary from place to place. Even particular judges get busy or decide that a motion such as yours does not take precedence over other motions. The fact that your probation officer has taken the initiative is actually a very good, and even unusual move, which can only be a positive thing. Two weeks is not unusual and three, four, or even six weeks would also not be unusual. Be patient and let the process take its course.
I have always taken the stance that you will have a much greater opportunity for success in this type of motion with the assistance of an attorney. Your attorney can lay out all the details of your case, success and likelihood of successful completion of probation. Furthermore, an attorney can obtain the written position of the cc officer, include in the motion and then have this set for a hearing if required. Rather than sitting around waiting, it's recommended to hire an attorney for your motion.
I agree with the attorneys, you must be patient. If you are not patient, you need to hire an experienced defense attorney to get you before the Judge as soon as possible. Use Avvo to help your search.
