Default Early termination of home confinement/probation?

i was recently sentenced to 3 years probation and as a condition of my probation, 12 months of home confinement. a friend of mine who practices criminal law, but not in federal court, had told me that since the home confinement is a condition of my probation, i would be eligible for early termination halfway through. just wondering if anyone here has any experience or knowledge on this subject. sorry if it has been discussed before, i tried searching and could not find anything on this topic.

Do you mean early termination of your probation half way through which would be at 18 months. (also after you completed 12 months of home confinement) or do you mean at 6 months.

As far as probation, in most districts if you have completed at least 50% of your probation time and fulfilled all of your probation requirements you can file a motion with the judge asking to have probation terminated. As long as you have been in compliance your PO should not object to the motion. I have not heard of getting off home confinement in half the time. I assume if you had a valid reason you could try and file a motion with the judge to terminate your home confinement early. However, I would think the chances of it being granted are slim. I suppose it couldnt hurt to try. The Judge wont give you more time for asking.
