I got asked today : why Adrian Peterson’s probation was cut off early?
So I figured there might be others out there wondering. It isn’t unusual for a person who has plead guilty to have their probation shortened. Some of the best things a person can do after a plea is to complete everything they need to get done. Pay the fine, go to the classes, and finish what other conditions that are set. If the crime is one that is unlikely to be a ongoing problem, the probation agent does have the discretion to cut the time short.
The advantage of completing everything is you also don’t have anything hanging over your head. A new charge brings it’s own problems along with a violation of a open probation.
Of interest in Peterson’s case, is that the prosecutor is claiming that Peterson never did the PSA he was required to do. The State may be filing an appeal of the dismissal. So it might not be over for Peterson yet.
