Modification of Supervised Release Terms and Conditions.
It is possible to seek a modification of conditions of supervised release with a motion in federal court. LEWIS & DICKSTEIN, P.L.L.C. has successfully represented clients in federal court for decades.
Federal Supervised Release Motions
It is possible to seek modifying conditions of supervised release in federal courts. There must be a valid reason – and not merely, you did not like the sentence. For example, a judge ordered a person to serve three months in a half-way house upon release from prison. The person is moved by the Bureau of Prisons to the halfway house three months earlier than expected. If the date of release remained the same, then the person would have served six months in a halfway house, which was not the judge’s sentence or intention. This would be a good reason to file a motion to modify the conditions of supervised release. A federal and state judge can modify a sentence when a proper motion is filed and presented to the court with attorneys making oral arguments as to why the modifying of conditions of supervised release is appropriate.
Common problems that might require a modifying of conditions of supervised release would be the need for the defendant to move to another state, travel abroad, or get a modification in a payment plan. A court can also modify the conditions of pretrial release to allow the defendant to be released from the court’s supervision earlier than previously ordered. Changes in circumstances may merit this type of relief, excellent behavior while on supervised release or health issues.
