Default Plea of Guilty while Incarcerated in MI

My gf is in Oakland County Jail and plead guilty via a plea by mail for violating probation in Eastpointe in 2016, MI. She was using and was caught with Vicodin many years ago. She stopped going to her probation meetings and never showed up to court and they issued a warrant for her arrest. How long could she get for this?

She was arrested recently for violating probation on another charge because she failed an ETG in March. How harsh will they be when they sentence her. She has come a long way and gotten clean off heroin. But still a long way to go being responsible. I'm hoping she won't be gone for too long.

Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

She served 15 days in Jail that's it. I looked at her case history and it said possession of NON-NARCOTIC (weird). Her car was also possessed. Bench warrant issues for absconding probation.

When she was in front of the judge during her deferred sentencing the Judge said that if she messes up he would throw her in for a year. Do they really go by what they say?

Yes they do. Especially if she has the same judge. I guess there is no way of telling what she will end up with them. You will just have to wait.

I went to Eastpointe Court because I had forwarded her Plea of Guilty by Mail and her Letter of Incarceration but they said that since this is a felony they will just pick her up at the end of her sentence.

The lady said they do not do concurrent and she might have up to 2 years of jail time since they have bedspace.

I am going to die inside.

I don't know how much legal help can be given here.

A deferred sentence is a total sweetheart deal, IF the defendant can stick with the terms of probation. She fulfills her obligations, the conviction goes away - that's the carrot part of the whole thing. But, there is a stick portion - the sentence that was probated for the term of her probation. Absconding is definitely not even trying to meet the conditions of her probation. It is a total slap in the face of the court that was trying to work with her and be charitable.

Generally, yes, at the end of their sentence the state and county issuing a detainer will pick them up and bring them back. Generally, they go to county and sit there awaiting their days in court. They will be assigned an attorney if she cannot afford one.

The court is not going to be happy with her. Not only did she abscond, she caught new charges and even managed to violate that probation. She will not be viewed as a good candidate for probation as she has proven more than once that she is unable to meet the conditions of probation.

Prepare for the worst, hope for the best.
