If you or a loved one is currently in prison, you may be able to seek an early release. Known as judicial release, eligible inmates can petition the court to release them under certain conditions. If an inmate violates any of these conditions, then this may put him or her back in prison to serve the remaining time. Early release essentially only suspends the sentence and not reduces it.

Discuss your eligibility during a FREE evaluation.
If you are eligible, then you must wait the required amount of time before applying. The longer your prison term is, the longer you generally will have to wait to petition for early release. For example, an individual serving a prison term that is less than 2 years can file after 30 days, while an individual sentenced to more than 5 (but less than 10 years) can file after serving 5 years.
An offender must file a petition for early release and attend a hearing. During the hearing, you must demonstrate to the court that you have rehabilitated and are ready to reenter society. This can include showing rehabilitative activities, good conduct in prison, participation in education or vocational training, and other activities.
The fate of your sentence can be determined by this hearing. You generally only have one chance to apply for early release, so it is important to have an attorney help you prepare for the hearing to maximize your chances of success.
