New Law Means New Probationary Terms. Do You Qualify?

criminal defense attorney Ann Arbor

Effective March 24, 2021 there’s a new presumption in Michigan law
against jail or probationary sentences for persons convicted of certain misdemeanor offenses.     

Senate Bill 1048 (2020) is part of criminal justice reform efforts across the country providing uniform standards for the probation system and ultimately reducing the number of citizens subject to unnecessary jail and probationary terms.  

For years, District Court dockets have been clogged with probation review and violation hearings involving individuals who have been convicted of minor crimes.
