Michigan domestic dispute leads to murder charges


Just about every Michigander has found him or herself in the middle of a disagreement at one time or another. Most of the time, these spats settle in a matter of minutes, hours or days, with very little residual effects except for perhaps some hard feelings. However, in some instances, arguments become physical, leaving individuals seriously injured or even dead. In the aftermath of these situations, the police and prosecutors will try to decipher what happened and, most likely, will bring criminal charges against an individual.

Questions to ask when facing an enticement charge


As readers of this blog know, the state of Michigan takes sex crime allegations seriously. These alleged offenses are among the most aggressively prosecuted and contain some of the toughest penalties. Those who are accused of committing a sex offense may be in for a difficult fight as, unfortunately, these individuals are often portrayed as guilty before being proven so. This means that they need to have a criminal defense that is thorough, persuasive and equally aggressive.

Michigan firm fighting for those facing drug charges


Previously, this blog discussed constructive possession as it relates to drug charges and how it can affect a criminal prosecution. This is merely one of a number of drug charges a Michigan resident may face. Nearly all drug offenses carry the potential for significant penalties that can throw your life into disarray in more ways than one. You may be incarcerated and lose your freedom as a result, you might be forced to pay financially damaging fines and your reputation may be affected, impacting your personal and professional lives for years to come.

Subsequent offenses and their impact on penalties


Even though individuals who are found guilty of a crime and serve out their prison sentences are considered to have paid their debt to society, the legal system does not treat them equal to non-offenders when it comes to potential penalties for the same crime. Alleged repeat offenders are often confronted with harsher penalties than the first time they were accused and convicted of the crime, and failing to adequately defend against these subsequent charges could significantly damage the accused's life.

Constructive possession with regard to drug crimes


There are a plethora of drug crimes that a Michigan resident could be charged. Whether it is simple possession, possession of paraphernalia, possession with intent to distribute or drug trafficking, those accused of breaking drug laws can be up against aggressive prosecution and the potential for serious penalties should they be convicted. A conviction can lead to a lengthy prison sentence, massive fines and irreparable damage to one's reputation. With so much on the line, those facing drug charges should carefully think about how best to defend themselves from the accusations.
