Michigan Probation Violations
Probation allow certain freedoms in exchange for compliance with strict rules – for a predetermined amount of time. Those who are on probation have to live within the parameters of set requirements, but they have not served prison or jail time for the recent offense. Michigan probationers are under the jurisdiction of the local courts.
