Thank you for your question.

I see you have already consulted an attorney - court appointed or not, you are going to need one to petition the court to modify your sentence. You will need to show that you have been complying with your work release requirements, and the nature of your home situation. This will have to be done in a hearing before the judge.

I hope this helps. Be sure to click ACCEPT so that I can get credit for this answer. As always, if you have additional questions after clicking ACCEPT, I will be happy to follow up with you.

Thanks!
