Art. 42.12. Community Supervision Sec. 20. Reduction or Termination of Community Supervision.
(a) At any time after the defendant has satisfactorily completed one-third of the original community supervision period or two years of community supervision, whichever is less, the period of community supervision may be reduced or terminated by the judge. On completion of one-half of the original community supervision period or two years of community supervision, whichever is more, the judge shall review the defendant's record and consider whether to reduce or terminate the period of community supervision, unless the defendant is delinquent in paying required restitution, fines, costs, or fees that the defendant has the ability to pay or the defendant has not completed court-ordered counseling or treatment. Before conducting the review, the judge shall notify the attorney representing the state and the defendant. If the judge determines that the defendant has failed to satisfactorily fulfill the conditions of community supervision, the judge shall advise the defendant in writing of the requirements for satisfactorily fulfilling those conditions. Upon the satisfactory fulfillment of the conditions of community supervision, and the expiration of the period of community supervision, the judge, by order duly entered, shall amend or modify the original sentence imposed, if necessary, to conform to the community supervision period and shall discharge the defendant. If the judge discharges the defendant under this section, the judge may set aside the verdict or permit the defendant to withdraw the defendant's plea, and shall dismiss the accusation, complaint, information or indictment against the defendant, who shall thereafter be released from all penalties and disabilities resulting from the offense or crime of which the defendant has been convicted or to which the defendant has pleaded guilty, except that:
(1) proof of the conviction or plea of guilty shall be made known to the judge should the defendant again be convicted of any criminal offense.
I, DANNY ZUNIGA, have been on Community Supervision as of October 23, 2009. I was incarcerated in the San Patricio County Jail for a period of 4 months, then was sent to Texas Dept of Corrections for a period of 2 months, then was sent back to the San Patricio County jail for a period of 30 more days before my probation would even start for me. As of today 07/20/2012, I have complied with every rule that was given to me on the date I was put on Adult Probation. I had 22 different rules to follow while on Adult Probation. I am requesting Early Termination of my Probation, but am lacking the support of the victim who is nowhere to be found, and 2 attempts have been made by the Community Supervision to locate him/her without success. So now, I am appealing to all friends and family to help sign this petition to terminate my community supervision. I, Danny Zuniga, just had surgery on July 2, 2012 for thyroid cancer and I would like to spend my remaining years with my wife and 4 kids and move on with my life and put this behind me once and for all.
