What is an Delayed Sentence (MCL 771.1)?

A court can place a defendant on probation-like supervision and delay a sentencing hearing so that the defendant’s compliance with supervision can be reviewed and considered when the court determines the appropriate sentence. In some cases, a court and prosecutor will agree to the dismissal or reduction in charges if the defendant is compliant.
