Early Discharge From Probation | Shyler Engel, PLLC

January 6, 2015
A Shyler Engel, PLLC client had a lengthy term of testing probation imposed against her after she pled guilty to a felony in Oakland County Circuit Court. Originally, she was subject to testing, reporting, and could not leave the State of Michigan. Now a medical marijuana patient, she desired to move out of Michigan and to be released from the testing conditions of her probation. Shyler Engel filed a motion asking the judge to release her completely from probation arguing that the client had been rehabilitated and that probation no longer served a purpose. The prosecutor disagreed and filed an objection stating that the defendant had not even been compliant during probation. After a hearing, the judge agreed that the best arrangement for the client going forward was to simply successfully discharge her from probation.
