The Court Has Authority to Modify Probation at Any Time During the Probationary Term –Success Requires the Knowledge and Skill of an Experienced Criminal Defense Attorney

Penal Code section 1203.3 provides in pertinent part as follows: (a) “The court shall have authority at anytime during the term of probation to revoke, modify, or change its order of suspension of imposition or execution of sentence. The court may at any time when the ends of justice will be served thereby, and when good conduct and reform of the person so held on probation shall warrant it, terminate the period of probation, and discharge the person so held.”

The trial court is therefore authorized, during the time of probation upon proper showing, to modify probation. People v. Marin (1957, 4th Dist.) 147 Cal.App.2d 625, 627. 605 P.2d.659.
