Addressing Misdemeanor Charges
Michigan law breaks down criminal offenses into the two broad categories of misdemeanors and felonies. Misdemeanor crimes could mean a defendant receives up to one year in jail if convicted. Examples of misdemeanor offenses include:
- Misdemeanor larceny
- Domestic violence
- DUI/OWI drunk driving
Taking On Felony Cases
As a more serious category of crime, felony convictions carry more substantial penalties and longer prison sentences – at least a year or more. They include:
- Delivery of controlled substances
- Carrying a concealed weapon
- Felonious assault
Many offenses can be either a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the situation and the defendant’s criminal history.
Simplifying The Criminal Justice Process
Your experience with the criminal justice system likely started when you were arrested and booked into jail. Upon paying bail, possibly with the help of a bail bondsman, you may have a pretrial hearing about your case. At this time, it is essential to already have an experienced criminal defense lawyer on your side to advocate for the most favorable resolution to your situation.
If a prosecutor offers you a plea agreement, you and your attorney need to decide if that or a trial is in your best interests. Retaining the services of The Rubinstein Law Firm to represent you will ensure that your rights are protected, that you understand your options and that someone is fighting for you both in and out of the courtroom.
