I have done so much research trying to figure it out but could not find anything. It says on the papers that it is considered contempt of court but nothing about the classification of the conviction.
MCL 764.15b is the statute that covers violation of a PPO. It sounds like you were held in contempt. This is not a felony but a criminal sanction for violating an order. It carries a maximum of 93 days in jail.See question

This is clearly a violation as it sounds like this was not a prescribed medication. You will need the advice of an attorney. Your case sounds like a Rochester Court case (18 months probation). The fact that it was a 1/2 dose is irrelevant. In addition, your lack of knowledge that it contained opiates would not be the what the court wants to hear so you should be sure that you contact a lawyer should you receive a violation or show cause notice. Jail is possible along with WWAM weekends. WWAM LINK: https://www.oakgov.com/commcorr/Pages/program_service/wwam.aspxSee question
I have been placed under HYTA and have 6 months probation. Is my case sealed as of now? And when I apply for jobs should I tell them my convictions details on applications or since I am under HYTA is it already sealed And I can say no?
HYTA is a golden parachute for youthful offenders, age 17 but under age 24, which means that no conviction is entered unless you violate a term of probation. Even before the end of a HYTA case (at the end of probation when it is dismissed), it is sealed and no conviction is entered. It is my opinion that you do not need to mention it on an application unless the question is asked specifically about arrest history or cases handled under alternative provisions such as HYTA. I would advise you that even though it is sealed, records have a way of appearing and causing misunderstandings. Also there is a list of entities (courts, law enforcement, some other security sensitive entities) that can always see a case handled pursuant to HYTA. You should be prepared with a copy of your disposition from the court in case something comes up regarding your HYTA case.See question
A topic at work keeps being brought up. Half the staff says you have no choice when it comes to taking FST's in Michigan, and the other half says you have the right to refuse. I am of the group that says to NEVER take a Field Sobriety Test becau...
The legal answer is that you do not have to take any tests and you do not have to answer any questions on the grounds that protect an individual against self incrimination pursuant to the 5th Amendment. Whether you should cooperate and perform the FST or not is something that you should discuss with your personal lawyer to be sure you are on the same page. By refusing to comply, a DUI arrest is still on the table based upon other grounds in the officer's opinion and observations. Once at the station, a chemical test is offered (usually a breath test) and if it is unreasonably refused, license sanctions are imposed (1 year suspension with appeal rights to circuit court). In addition, law enforcement officers may obtain a warrant for a blood test when a chemical test is refused.See question

There are many issues presented in your inquiry. As a Macomb County criminal defense lawyer, I would file a motion regarding the fines which you have described. In this regard, perhaps there is an error or the Court can consider some type of relief. For some reason, the fines seem excessive but may include time spend in a youth-home and/or restitution for damages. (I know you said that there were not any damages). As far as the case involving a fight with his brother, it will probably be pursued as a domestic violence case. Hopefully, nobody was injured. However, domestic violence cases are "policy cases" and the police along with the prosecutor take these matters very seriously once a 911 call is made. Domestic violence cases are usually manageable in the court system. At age 17 or above, your son will be treated as an adult for purpose of criminal charges. At age 23, he may be eligible for HYTA or a special provision of law specific to domestic violence cases (MCL 769.4a) to get probation and a dismissal. You definitely need to consult with a lawyer in your jurisdiction. As I stated, I am in Macomb County but the laws that I mentioned apply anywhere in the State of Michigan for your information. Hopefully, someone out there can help you organize your son's legal troubles. Good luck and I hope this little bit of information is helpful for now.See question

Do you have any prior domestic violence cases on your record? If your record is clean, an attorney would be in a better position to negotiate on your behalf for a potentially favorable disposition. Perhaps one charge can be dropped and the other handled under MCL 769.4a. MCL 769.4a will result in a dismissal after a period of probation. You cannot get both charges under MCL 769.4a, only 1. Also, this provision can only be used 1 time for an offender. This is one possible plea bargain scenario which is better than the one that you described. Good luck sir.See question

You can expect to be treated fairly by Judge Barnard. As Mr. Fabian stated, sentencing for an impaired driving will depend upon various factors including but not limited to: your blood alcohol content, your prior record, whether there was an accident and victim, whether you were cooperative with the police, the recommendation of the probation department and any other positive or negative aspects of your life.See question

Since you need to make sure that you are 100% compliant, contact the court that sentenced you! I am responding 12-22 at 3:45 p.m. and you should call ASAP because the court may have limited hours due to the holiday. If you can't reach someone at the Court, contact the OCJ and ask if they received the commitment order.

I would like to have coffee with another person in my recovery groups, but we both have felonies? Because we're both in recovery together and not just acquaintances, can we have coffee together or communicate outside the program?
As usual, Mr. Austin nailed it. You should not communicate with felons (and sometimes anyone in the court system) if you are on parole or probation. If you are on parole or probation, KNOW all of of probation or parole conditions so you are not in violation. Good luck with continued success in your recovery.See question

Traveling great distances to provide a random sample is a recipe for failure and our courts are sensitive to this situation. However, your lawyer needs to present an alternative plan to the court. An alternative plan such as testing at a verified or reliable testing center in your area is something that can be presented to the court. Your will want to obtain the credentials of the testing center to the court and probation department for consideration. You should do some homework by contacting the court in your jurisdiction and asking who they would recommend for testing. Good luck.See question
