If you have a conviction for a felony crime in Montana it is very likely that part of your sentence includes probation. On probation you likely have to regularly check in with your probation officer, pay monthly fees for supervision, get tested for drugs and alcohol, get permission before traveling, and obey a fairly long list of other restrictive conditions. If you fail to meet these obligations you could get your sentence revoked and end up back in jail for violation of your conditions of probation.
On the other hand, if you don’t have any violations, after a certain amount of time and based upon a risk assessment done by your probation officer, you may be eligible for Conditional Discharge. We can help you apply to the District Court for this status. If granted, you will still be held to your conditions of probation, but you won’t need check in with your probation officer, pay fees, do testing, or get permission to travel. If you think you might qualify please contact our office for assistance with this process.
If you have been granted Conditional Discharge Status, at a certain point you may also become eligible for Early Termination from probation. We can help you with this process as well.
