At our April 14th meeting, Public Defenders Katie Krejci and Meghan White returned to discuss Probation early termination guidelines for those on probation for sex offenses in Maricopa County . Following is a summary of what they discussed – the Maricopa County Probation Early Termination Guidelines are attached. Probation ET Guidelines
Those on less than lifetime probation must serve more than half their term to be eligible for early release. Those on lifetime probation must have served at least the term specified in A.R.S. § 13-902(A) (i.e.: F2, 7 years; F3, 5 years; F4, 4 years, F5 & F6, 3 years). The Adult Probation department is more likely to support a petition if the probationer is complying with treatment and probation rules, including passing polygraphs and paying all restitution. But even with the support of the probation department, the court will ultimately decide whether to approve early termination. Probation and the courts take termination petitions on a case by case basis.
