If you're under investigation in Ann Arbor for a misdemeanor or a felony, this means you have not been charged yet, but the police department is working with the prosecutor on those charges.
Sometimes you will not be told you are charged, but simply picked up on an arrest warrant or hopefully sent something in the mail with a court date. This procedure varies depending upon the charge, but it's always important to have the same information and opportunity to participate in the charging process as does the prosecutor and police department. Simply sitting back and hoping things work out is a lazy and an unwise strategy. You should be an active participant in the process with legal representation.
