Georgia’s new probation law went into effect in 2021 and created a pathway for Georgians on felony probation to have their sentence terminated after three years if certain milestones are met. Learn more about how you can self-advocate for early termination below.
Are you on felony probation? Have you served at least 3 years of your probation sentence?
If so, you may be eligible for early termination of your probation!
Do you meet the following criteria?
You may be able to terminate your probation early even if you still owe fines and fees, but restitution must be paid.
And remember, if you terminate probation to complete your sentence, you can vote. You can also vote even if still serving a Felony Offender Act or Conditional Discharge sentence, as long as your status isn’t revoked. See GJP.org/voting for more information.
