    Default Early Discharge

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: New York/ New Jersey

    I was transferred from NYC probation to nj (my home state) the one day I was in NYC the Probation officer told me I could be discharged from my 5 year sentence in 3 years. My probation officer is NJ keeps telling me that if I continue to a model probationer that they will cut my time in half (2 1/2 years). I'm a bit confused I know NY and NJ laws differ so it may be half your time in NJ but 60% of you time in NY and although im reporting in NJ im still technically under the supervision of NY. Can anybody verify which one it is in my situation 2 1/2 years or 3 years.

    Default Re: Early Discharge

    Your case is from NYC. Your NJ PO is just doing NY a courtesy of monitoring you since you are out of their jurisdiction. He doesn't have the power to term you early. His department can request to close interest and NYC can ask them not to. If NJ says not, they want to close the case, then NYC can keep the case open through mail in or phone reporting until they term you or your term date comes.
