Violation of Probation Cases in Michigan

The Michigan courts consider granting criminal offenders with probation as a privilege and because of this, any probation violation is harshly punished. If you have been accused of violating your probation order, you must speak to an Oakland criminal defense attorney as soon as possible in order to ensure that your rights are protected.

There are many ways to violate your probation, but in our experience, here are some of most common:

  • Failing to appear in court
  • Being accused of another crime
  • Failing to meet with a probation officer
  • Failing alcohol or drug tests

Violating your probation can lead a judge to issue a bench warrant against you for missing a court hearing and your driver's license can be automatically suspended! The consequences of a probation violation are very serious and obtaining legal representation is absolutely essential.It can mean the difference between living freely and living behind bars.
