Once the term of the probation is over with and the defendant has complied with all the terms and conditions, it will be terminated. A defendant can not be required to stay on probation for a greater time then ordered, if they complied. Now, if a defendant wants to terminate their probation early, then the Judge will have the final say. The Judge will hear from the probation officer, the State and the Defendant, to consider if probation should be terminated early and if there are any objects and the basis for or against it.
