  1. Depends on what court your case is assigned to. I can see that you are posing your question from Auburn Hills. If that is the jurisdiction of the MIP case, your hearing will take place in the 52-3 Judicial District Court. A little poking around on Google will tell you the history of that court and how the judges handle those cases. Unfortunately, the law is rarely followed and many young men and women are taken advantage of by the judge in that building who chose to render sentences that provide for terms and conditions that are not allowed under the law. Worse yet, they routinely hand out illegal jail sentences for technical violations of probation.

    If you are charged with distributing alcohol to a minor, this is a very serious offense in that court. I handle criminal cases, included charges such as yours, in the 52-3 Judicial District Court (and other courts throughout Oakland, Wayne and Macomb Counties), and I can tell you that appearing without representation is unwise.
