Good afternoon. It would be at the discretion of the Judge. A motion to modify the sentence and reduce the time in which the order of protection is imposed, would need to be filed. You would need to present good cause and a valid argument, as to why this should be done and the Judge may want to hear from the victim and the State as well. Worse case, it is denied but you can try and modify/reduce it.
