What you are facing is a violation of probation. You have the right to a contested hearing to challenge whether or not you actually violated your probation. If you are convicted after a hearing, or if you plead guilty to the probation violation, you are at the Judge's mercy as it relates to sentencing. The maximum sentence for False Pretenses $1000 or more but less than $20,000 is 5 years in prison and/or $10,000, or 3 times the value of the money or property involved, whichever is greater (pursuant to MCL 750.218(4)(a). The minimum possible sentence is no jail time at all.
The Judge will evaluate the violation of probation by weighing the positive things that you have done against the negative things you have done. How harsh or lenient the sentence will be depends upon the temperament of your Judge. The best thing you can do to help yourself is to hire an experienced criminal lawyer to advocate on your behalf. The time to address the situation is now, since you have a new baby and you have to get your life in order to care for your new baby.
