Criminal Defense Attorney in Ann Arbor Defends Probation Violations

ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Michimich -- A violation of probation can be earth-shattering. Judges can revoke your probation and sentence you to the maximum jail or prison sentence (and perhaps enter the conviction if under a deferred sentence). Judges can reinstate probation and impose some incarceration. Best-case scenario, judges can issue a warning and reinstate your probation.

What constitutes a violation? Failure to do the things the judge ordered, doing what the judge prohibited, or being arrested for a new criminal offense while on probation. Those people who are charged with a probation violation (often called a Show-Cause), definitely should consider contacting an attorney.
