Misdemeanor Probation Violation
Probation violations in the Michigan District Courts take place all of the time. At the probation violation hearings, in many courts, the defendants face many additional sanctions, including jail. The Michigan Probation Violation statutes, MCL 771.1 and MCL 771.3, details the ability of the District Court to impose probation conditions. Once placed on probation, District Courts have the ability to modify or revoke your probation, per MCL 771.4.
If the District Court alleges that you have violated your probation, you can request a hearing, where the prosecutor would have to prove by a preponderance of the evidence that you violated your probation.
