I have a dui with a joint in car that was my friends, so im testing twice a week and drug and alcohol on probation for 2 years im coming up to 1year I go to court they are dropping the drug charge. I have tested twice a week for the entire year and reported never missed anything finally paid off probation and have completed everything they required can I get off probation early after serving 1year already?
You can get off of probation early, but you typically have to go more than half of the term in most court.s Speak to your probation officer in terms of what he is thinking.

The questioner is NOT a client. If I answer that you should talk to a lawyer, I mean it.
To set the record straight, you say you will be going to court to have the drug charge dismissed after a year of successfully following the court’s order concerning the testing & other requirements correct? And, you want to raise the issue as it relates to oration for an additional year on the drinking & driving charge correct? If you answer yes to both questions, I see nothing standing in the way of your asking the judge for consideration to reduce the probationary period that remains by simply saying: “Your honor, I am grateful for having the opportunity to make good on my case and receive the break you have given me, I am wondering if there is any way the court might consider reducing my continued probation on the other charge.” The worst the judge can say is no.
