    Answered . If the violation of probation is established by a preponderance of the evidence, or if you admit to violating your probation, it is up to the Judge to decide what happens. The Judge could elect to do nothing, the Judge could add conditions to your probation, the Judge could extend your probation, the Judge could put you in jail. If you are on any provision in the law to expunge the conviction, such as 7411 or HYTA, the Judge has the option to revoke that status. The Judge will probably be interested in how you are addressing your drug problem. If you don't have a lawyer, you should ask for one or ask for an adjournment so you can hire a lawyer.

    I think you must have an attorney in Michigan to represent you legal interests to keep you on probation, otherwise you may lose that privilege.
