Challenging the elements of felony crimes in Michigan

On Behalf of | Oct 27, 2016 | Criminal Defense

There are a large number of felonies recognized under Michigan law, any one of which can turn a Michigan resident’s life upside down. A felony criminal record can cause an individual to lose a job, struggle to find other employment, be turned down for apartment leases and even be denied financial aid for a college education. Not to mention, a convicted felon will likely have to spend a significant time incarcerated and pay a fine.

To protect their future, Michigan residents need to put on a strong criminal defense. At our law firm, we work with our clients to develop personally tailored legal defenses that fit our clients’ needs. Our law firm is dedicated to utilizing the law to our clients’ fullest advantage when0 possible.

One of the best ways to do this is to challenge the elements of an alleged crime. Like credit card fraud, which was discussed on a post here a few weeks ago, every crime has certain elements. If the prosecution fails to prove each element, then an individual should be acquitted. Therefore, utilizing physical evidence, witness testimony and the rules of evidence to draw as many legal elements into question as possible is crucial to putting forth a strong criminal defense.

Creating a sound defense is not something that can be done overnight. It takes time, organization and extensive preparation. Those who have been accused of a felony in Michigan should therefore not hesitate to initiate their criminal defense. At our law firm, we stand ready to assist accused individuals with their cases and to fight back against criminal allegations.
