Our Experience with the HYTA Status in Michigan


It is our experience that judges are not keen on removing HYTA status from individuals. Judges never want to take the right for a second chance from individuals who are willing to change. Unfortunately, when you give the judge no choice but to remove your HYTA privilege, you may experience its removal and face the music and the penalties. 

What does the judge consider in removing my HYTA privilege?

The judge will consider a lot of factors when removing your HYTA privilege. They are the following:

Your Demeanor

Your demeanor at the time of the hearing for your HYTA violation is an important consideration of the judge. The judge looks at whether or not you can protect yourself and defend yourself for the actions that you did. No matter how serious the offense is, it is your demeanor that can still play an important role in how the judge will perceive your actions and will eventually tell them if you are still worth the chance to get your life together.

Keep in mind that the main purpose of a penalty such as jail time or even provision is for rehabilitation. However, they form part of your permanent record as that will haunt you down even when you have already changed for the better. 

When you get the HYTA status as a privilege, the records are sealed and you will not be chased down by your past.

Your Acceptance Of Your Mistake

Acceptance of the mistake that you have made should also be showcased in the statements as well as during the court proceedings when the judge is trying to determine if you should continue to be entitled to the HYTA status that has already been granted.It is often done by the judge by asking you questions that would help determine if you know the consequences of your second violation as well as what led you to your second violation.

Keep in mind that the HYTA status is not yours forever if you fail to see the fault in your actions and you fail to realize the mistakes that you have committed.

The Gravity of the Second Violation

The more important aspect of dealing with another violation after being granted an HYTA status is the gravity of the second violation. The gravity of the second violation is an important determining factor.

Keep in mind that for the status to be approved there are certain requirements set by law. If you committed a crime that is under any of the disqualifications, you would have to pay for it. The gravity of the second violation could make or break even the existence of the first HYTA status.

Do I need a lawyer to handle the case for my HYTA violation?

Yes, an HYTA violation proceeding is much more complicated than the hearing for the HYTA violation itself. You should keep in mind that the grant of the HYTA is dependent on the fact that you are ready to change and accept the mistakes that you made. Since you are young, you are given the chance to change. 

A case of an HYTA violation is evidence that you may not be ready for the chance that you should have to go through. It will be considered against you and you may have to face the consequence not only of the present violation but of the previous violation as well. This is not what you want.
