On occasion, a judge may order a defendant to Pretrial Supervision (MCR). Pretrial Supervision is different from probation in many regards. Foremost, except in some Deferred Prosecution and possibly Pretrial Diversion cases, defendants in pretrial supervision have not entered a plea in their case or been found guilty by the court. As such, they are still innocent and deserving of release under the least restrictive means necessary to ensure court appearance and public safety.
Pretrial Officers will supervise those ordered to supervision report compliance issues to the Court.
