I hope this message finds you well. I am a licensed attorney with over a decade of criminal defense law experience. It is a pleasure to assist you today.

If the plea agreement states a period of three years for supervised release, then that is precisely how long the court has jurisdiction over the matter, unless you breach a provision of the supervised release. This is not an issue of case law as this has been well accepted for many decades. It a way, it is more akin to a contract.

The supervised release period will start upon your release from custody. It is very rare that a court lifts a supervised release early.

Let me know if you have any other questions or comments. Please also rate my answer positively (three or more stars).

Best wishes going forward!
