Overview on Early Termination of Conditional Discharge

Conditional Discharge in Nassau County

Under N.Y. CPL. § 410.90, the court can terminate a sentence of conditional discharge early. The first step is filing a motion for early termination of conditional discharge. We have found that thorough preparation often leads to the best results. All favorable information about the probationer and the progress he or she has made since being sentenced should be included in the motion. The standard used by the court to grant the motions contained in § 410.90(b). The conditional discharge should be discharged when the court is of the opinion that: 

  • the defendant has diligently complied with the terms and conditions of the sentence of conditional discharge; and
  • termination of the sentence of conditional discharge is not adverse to protection of the public.

Many courts have an unwritten policy that early termination should not be granted until the probationer has completed at least one half of the term originally imposed. 

Do I have to Pay Restitution Before Being Granted Conditional Discharge?

The court will not terminate the term of probation or conditional discharge early if the restitution has not been paid when the probationer does so willfully and has the ability to pay. In fact, the period can be extended to make sure that all restitution is paid, even when the court permits payments in monthly installments.
