Procedures at the 35th District Court
The 35th District Court will set your first hearing for an arraignment where the judges will formally tell you what crime you have been accused of and what the maximum penalty of that crime is.
The judges will also set a bond at your arraignment hearing. Unfortunately, Even if you believe you are innocent the judges will still set a bond usually with bond conditions.
For instance, if you have been accused of domestic violence and it was alleged that you were drinking at the time the alleged offence occurred then the judges would likely set a bond and order you not to drink, not to have any contact with the person you are alleged of assaulting, and not to have possession of any firearms.
The bond itself is an amount of money you pay to stay out of jail, or an amount of money you promise to pay if you violate one of the bond conditions.
The second hearing at the 35th District Court is your pre trial. At the pre trial your lawyer will discuss your matter with the prosecuting attorney. The prosecutor is the attorney who represents the police and city government where the crime was alleged to occur. City of Northville, Northville Township, Canton, Plymouth Township, and the City of Plymouth each have their own prosecutor’s office.
One of three things can happen at your pre trial: 1. Your case will be dismissed if the prosecuting attorney believes a crime did not occur; 2. The case will be set for trial; or, 3. You will enter a plea to the charge. It is possible that the plea you enter will be to a reduced charge.
If you are found guilty of a crime at the 35th District Court then you will face up to two years on probation with conditions related to the offence you were found guilty of. You could also face as much as 93 days in jail to a year in jail. Probation conditions can include anything from random drug and alcohol testing, to anger management, substance abuse education, and more depending on the offense.
