I have 8 years for unlawful restraint and have completed 4 and in that time I have started a business and graduated from college and have not had any more trouble and it is my only charge/conviction.
The first step is to make sure you have completed all the terms of your probation both financial and obligatory such as community service. Next speak to your PO and ask if there are any objections to the early termination. If not the final step is to hire a lawyer to file the paperwork. Most criminal defense attorneys who handle these types of cases like myself will offer you a free consultation
I would also speak with the attorney about the particulars of the Judge of the Court where the early release petition will be filed. Some judges will almost never allow early release, whereas others are more liberal with granting it.
