Yes. Federal law gives judges the authority to release defendants from probation early. (Generally, to be released from probation early you have to pay off your fines, complete at least half of your probation and complete all court ordered classes and treatment.)
Federal Shorten Probation:
(a) Commencement.— A term of probation commences on the day that the sentence of probation is imposed, unless otherwise ordered by the court.
(b) Concurrence With Other Sentences.— Multiple terms of probation, whether
imposed at the same time or at different times, run concurrently with each
other. A term of probation runs concurrently with any Federal, State, or local
term of probation, supervised release, or parole for another offense to which
the defendant is subject or becomes subject during the term of probation. A
term of probation does not run while the defendant is imprisoned in connection
with a conviction for a Federal, State, or local crime unless the imprisonment
is for a period of less than thirty consecutive days.
(c) Early Termination.— The court, after considering the factors set forth in section 3553 (a) to the extent that they are applicable, may, pursuant to the provisions of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure relating to the modification of probation, terminate a term of probation previously ordered and discharge the defendant at any time in the case of a misdemeanor or an infraction or at any time after the expiration of one year of probation in the case of a felony, if it is satisfied that such action is warranted by the conduct of the defendant and the interest of justice.
(d) Extension.— The court may, after a hearing, extend a
term of probation, if less than the maximum authorized term was previously
imposed, at any time prior to the expiration or termination of the term of
probation, pursuant to the provisions applicable to the initial setting of the
term of probation.
My Story: I'm a regular guy who got into trouble and pled guilty to a felony. I went to prison and served my time. I was always on my best behavior.
