If you have been convicted of any prior crime in the state of Michigan, there is a good chance you have been placed on probation of some kind. Probation is a period of time in which committing another offense or some kind of violation of the probation terms will result in harsh punishments and possibly being taken directly to jail. If you have been accused of violating the terms of your probation and wish to fight that charge, call our offices right away to speak with our team about your situation. We have experience working probation cases in Michigan courts and will do our best to help you in this matter.
Depending on your probation terms and conditions, you might violate probation without even knowing it. Among the most common ways that probation gets violating include the following –
- Failing to complete court-ordered activity (like rehab)
- Failing a drug test
- Being arrested for another crime
- Leaving the state without permission
- Missing a court date
- Failing to keep a job or attend school regularly
Any of the above might seem innocent enough, but they can land you in serious trouble if you are already on probation. The result of this violation can be having new charges brought against you, or having the deal from your previous charge thrown out and facing new prosecution for that crime. It is vital that you do whatever you can to not be found in violation of the terms of your probation.
