I was 17 yrs old, and in 1998, I was arressed on a charge of Armed Robbery in Gwinnett County GA. I served 10 yrs and 8 days on the sentece. I have been on probation since my release( Nov, 2008), I have paid my fine, and am trying to move to FLA. Am trying to start over completely and work towards gaining my rights back.
Hire a lawyer to represent you on a motion for early termination of probation. If you have kept your nose clean for the past 4 years, the chances are good that you would be successful on this motion. Feel free to contact me at 404-985-9772 for a free consultation.
As a Gwinnett practitioner, I can tell you that, depending on the judge and prosecutor, there may be things we can do. Please feel free to shoot me an email or give me a call.

Advice given by me on this website is general advice based on partial information. You should not rely on any advice given without first hiring a lawyer in the area where the case is pending, and providing that lawyer with full information.
Given your age at the time and the fact that you have done what you are supposed to do, you should have a good shot at getting what you want. However, due to the complexity of the motion which needs to be filed, and the need for someone to walk this through the right way with the Judge and prosecutor, you are going to need to have an attorney help you.
