Adrian Peterson won’t have to worry about scheduling meetings with a probation officer during the NFL season.

According to Mary Lynn Smith of the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Peterson had the remainder of his two-year probation terminated after just nine months he pleaded no contest to misdemeanor reckless assault of his 4-year old son.

Peterson’s agent, Rusty Hardin, told the Star Tribune that Peterson had completed a third of probation and it’s terms, allowing him to apply for the early termination. The terms of the sentence also included a $4,000 fine and 80 hours of community service. The termination order was signed last week.

Montgomery County District Attorney Brett Ligon told KHOU-TV that they plan to file an appeal of the decision as they believe terms of the probation have not been met.

Hardin said the district attorney’s office had 48 hours notice to challenge the application.

“They had an opportunity to object. They did not, and the judge granted it. … And now apparently they’re upset,” he said. “And it’s their right. But it’s over and done with. And now Adrian is going to go play football.”
