Legal Question in Criminal Law in Florida

I have been on probation for 13 years and have 2 years left for a grand theft and still owe $10,000.00 and no job. I found out from my probation officer that the money is going to victims fund because the company has no longer been accepting the payments or payments are being returned. Is there a way to get off probation and get my record sealed so I can get a job. It's a withheld of judication if I complete my probation and restition

Yes, you or your attorney can petition for early termination of probation and then later petition to have the charge sealed. Often, however, the payment of the restitution is a condition of the probation, so if that is the case, it may be less likely that the Judge would be willing to terminate the probation.

You may want to discuss this further with a licensed attorney.
