Novi was once a small city but now is a thriving destination for many businesses and has become home to one of the biggest shopping malls in the state of Michigan. Novi is located in Oakland County and is often times called the “new direction” of the state of Michigan since many companys that come from overseas prefer to call Novi home.
A 47 year old woman was recently found staggering down a street in Novi with her four year old child about 50 feet behind her. Witnesses told the police that at one point Mary Rollins was found passed out on the front yard of a nearby residence and wasn’t responding to her 4 year old child crying next to her. When deputies found Ms. Rollins she a blood alcohol level of .164 and the legal limit for drunk drivers is .08. Ms. Rollins has been charged with fourth degree child abuse and child neglect.
Novi has several different courts that serve the city. The first is the Oakland County Probate Court which takes on such cases as decedent estates and wills, trusts, guardianships, and mental health.
