What are the chances of early termination?
I got 2 years for a robbery, which was really a petty theft and resistance. It was written into my clause that I am eligible for early termination after a year. I have reached a year and successfully completed well over what was asked of me. I have had urinary retention problems and have had to had a catheter twice. I couldn't urinate for my urine test but obtained a blood test through a hospital. My probation officer says she must report my medical condition and my circumstances to the state. What are my chances of early termination?
I'd say your chances are pretty good, based upon what you've posted.

How do you get a DUI dismissed when the charges were issued passed the statute of limitations in our state. 4 years
My husband was arrested for DUI and driving on a revoked license in our neighboring county. When I posted his bail we were told there was a bench warrant for his arrest on a DUI in our county. He had been arrested in 2012 for driving without a license. He refused to take the Breathalyzer test and was released from jail ROR the following day. He wasn't given a court date or any DUI charges. It wasn't until his arrest in another county that we found out about the bench warrant. We did move to a home we purchased in 2013, but we filed a forwarding address with the post office. At no time did we leave the state or country. Since this DUI charge was not delivered until nearly 4 years later it is past the statute of limitations for a 3rd degree felony DUI in Florida. We informed the court appointed attorney of this and he has not put in a request to have the charges dismissed for this reason. What can we do?
Ask your attorney why he is not pursuing it. Likely he has a good reason, but we should not second guess him here.
If I have a 3rd DUI arrest, but this is the first one I have had in more than 10 years. Can the other 2 be counted against me?
I was arrested in February 2016 for DUI and driving while my license was revoked. My last one was in 2002. I thought the law was that if you get more than one in 10 years it's a felony. The States Attorney wants to put me in jail for 3 years, followed by 3 years probation.
A third DUI offense within 10 years of the last conviction is a 3rd degree felony. It is punishable by up to five years...
