ATLANTA – State Rep. Angela Moore (D-Decatur), along with the Georgia Justice Project, will host a symposium for the early termination of probation sentences on Saturday, Nov. 13, 10 a.m. – 12 p.m., at the Community Achievement Center, 4522 Flat Shoals Rd., Decatur. To register for this free event, contactangela.moore@house.ga.gov.

The symposium will inform, instruct and assist felony probationers on the process of reducing their probation periods. The Georgia Justice Project attorneys and team will be available to assist probationers.

Individuals who have served at least three years of a probation sentence may petition to end their probation early if they have fulfilled the state’s required behavioral incentives, including paying all restitution owed, not having probation revoked in the past 24 months and not being arrested for anything other than a non-serious traffic offense.

During the 2021 legislative session, the Georgia General Assembly passed Senate Bill 105, which streamlines the process for those who seek to terminate their probation sentences early as a result of good behavior. For more information on SB 105, please click here.

“There is now a second chance for Georgia probationers, and Georgia’s new law creates a pathway to meeting and reaching individual and family goals without the stigma of being on probation,” said Moore. “I am grateful for the work that the Georgia Justice Project has done to champion this new law that clearly defines the process for termination of a felony probation term.”
