i am on federal probation for a small bookmaking ends next january.looking for a chance of an earlier release from probation
Unless there is time for good behavior or a similar consideration, there is no way to force an earlier probation. A way to think about this is as a contract. According to the contract you are on probation until January of 2009. Unless part of the contract is that the time period will be shortened if you accomplish X, then there is no way to shorten the contract. I am sorry.

I hope that I have helped you, answered all of your questions,
and that I have provided you with useful information.
Please ask more questions if I have not answered all of your

In the future, if you would like to specifically ask me a question,
you can ask for me in the body of the question.

Please be aware that my answer is not legal advice,
it is merely information. The only way that I am legally
responsible for your legal rights is if you have signed
a written retainer agreement with my law firm.
