Petty Theft charge, diversion program

Casselberry, FL |

Is there a chance of getting out of a diversion program's probation early if I am on outstanding behavior and do very well?

My lawyer told me that the diversion program will consist of community service, a theft class, and about 6 months probation.

If I complete the community service and the theft class and have been extremely good, is there a chance to be dismissed from the program and marked as complete earlier than 6 months?

Yes, there's a chance.

Do you have a good reason? Military enlistment? Special license? Most people behave well on diversion. The court sets the diversion period to make sure you don't repeat the offense and so you think about the consequences.
