Is it possible to get an early termination of DWI probation in New York?
Probation is not only to rehabilitate people convicted of DWI in New York, but also to keep the public safe. When your license is suspended or revoked in NY, it is because the courts think you could be a threat to other drivers on the road. For this reason, it is very rare for a judge to allow an early termination of DWI probation in New York.
However, although early terminations of DWI probation are uncommon, Section 410.90 of New York Criminal Procedural law allows a judge to terminate probation early if they believe the public is not at risk of being harmed by the defendant, and that the defendant has complied with all the conditions of the probation up until that point. In some cases, when probation can’t be terminated, a judge can modify some of the conditions.
However, to terminate or modify a probation, you must request a hearing and the proper motions and procedures must be filed. Because having your probation terminated or modified can be complicated, it’s important to contact a DWI attorney in Nassau County to discuss your case. A qualified NY DWI probation attorney can help you request a hearing and present your case to have your probation terminated before a judge.
