What are the conditions for early termination probation?
Section 948.05, Florida Statutes (2011), states, “[a] court may at any time cause a probationer…to ap-pear before it to be admonished or commended, and, when satisfied that its action will be for the best interests of justice and the welfare of society, it may discharge the probationer from further supervi-sion.” The above referenced statute gives this court jurisdiction to discharge the probationer from supervision. Baker v. State, 619 So. 2d 411, 412 (Fla. 2nd DCA 1993); see also Johnson v. State, 682 So. 2d 1196 (Fla. 4th DCA 1996)(special condition of probation precluding possibility of early termination reversed). In Arriaga v. State, 666 So. 2d 949 (Fla. 4th DCA 1996), the Court, held that Section 948.05 “requires the court to respond to the facts and circumstances that develop during the term of proba-tion. If the probationer has fulfilled his obligations and has been a “model probationer,” the interests of justice (not to mention the wise allocation of scarce resources) may require that early termination be considered.” Id. at 950.
