Those in Kalamazoo who already face trouble were once told to “keep their noses clean” while they wait for theirs issues to be resolved. If one is currently facing a felony charge, resolving that issue should be at the forefront of his or her mind, as should avoiding any actions that could lead to further trouble. Yet all too often, it seems that those in these situations give into either pressure or the perceived hopelessness of what they’re facing and continue to engage in activity which only serves to compound their troubles.
Such appears to be the case with an Escanaba man who seems to be his own worst enemy. Faced with issues involving his estranged ex-wife, he is already facing criminal charges in Wisconsin for failing to comply with police officers after he was found pointing a gun at himself inside of his car. Yet he ended up missing his court date due to the fact that he was in again in jail after having been arrested by Delta County officials on charges of extortion, computer crime, and possession of an illicit substance. He now potentially faces extended prison time in both cases.
However dire one’s case may seem when faced with being charged with a felony, it can get much worse if he or she can’t seem to avoid further trouble. Having a support network in place to help one through such times may serve to help him or her endure through these legal struggles. A criminal defense attorney may help one identify such a network while also providing valuable assistance on his or her case.
