Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
Is she correct and can I petition TEXAS court for probation discharge and expunction?
No, TX wasn't the conviction state so they have no power to expunge the conviction. This would have to be done in Michigan where the conviction occurred. As for the probation, if TX is just basically supervising the probation for MI, then they don't have the power to discharge and end it. The receiving State can only make a recommendation...it is up to the sending State whether they want to terminate early or not.
Sorry for the delay..
Would it be appropriate to send a very brief note to the prosecutor to notify her of both my health, since she asked to be kept updated, and my forthcoming of a Motion to Discharge Early?
Definitely. If you were to get the original prosecutor behind you, you might even be able to file your petition for early discharge in MI remotely if there is no objection by the prosecutor. Then the judge can simply approve it in chambers and sign off on a formal discharge order releasing you from probation.
You are very welcome. Glad to help any time..
All the best to you and yours.
