Arizona Revised Statute 13-901(E) allows the court to terminate the period of probation prior to the end of the originally imposed term. The court can terminate probation early on its own or upon application of the probationer. The prosecuting attorney, as well as the victim, on request, must be given notice and an opportunity to be heard. The court may terminate probation early if the judge determines justice will be served and if the defendant’s conduct while on probation warrants terminating the probation term early.
E. The court, on its own initiative or on application of the probationer, after notice and an opportunity to be heard for the prosecuting attorney and, on request, the victim, may terminate the period of probation or intensive probation and discharge the defendant at a time earlier than that originally imposed if in the court's opinion the ends of justice will be served and if the conduct of the defendant on probation warrants it.
