At any time, you can ask your PO to schedule a probation sentence review with the judge. When you have complied with the terms of probation and have shown great progress, then you can ask the judge to modify some of the terms of your probation.

So, keep working with your probation officer. Keep making progress. And, then, when things are looking good, ask your PO to schedule a probation sentence review with the judge and then make your pitch to the judge.

Good luck and best wishes! I hope that you find this information to be helpful and this answer to be ACCEPTable!

I did not receive probation only 2 years in jail or on EM monitor. I check in with the probation office because I am on ankle monitor. The only other thing I received was make restitution. EM apparently has their own set of rules such as community service, not allowed to drive, etc.. Would I still ask my PO to schedule a hearing? Is this something I can do myself or would I need to go through my PO? I have been on ankle monitor since May 10, 2010. I found the authorization to drive online and submitted this to my PO last Monday awaiting to hear.
