Michigan DUI Probation Violation Consequences

photodune-6671140-in-jail-xs.jpgIt is not uncommon for a person to violate a probation condition in Michigan. Probation violations often occur when a person misses or fails his/her breath or urine test, is charged with a subsequent crime, or does not pay ordered court fines and costs. If you have violated your probation terms, you may be wondering "What is going to happen to me?" Depending on the nature of the violation, you may be required to serve jail time. Retain an attorney immediately if you receive notice of violating your probation terms. You will be required to appear before a judge to admit or deny that you violated your probation.
