Michigan Felony Crime Attorney
Have you or a loved one been arrested for any type of serious criminal offense in Michigan? Most serious crimes are classified as felonies, with smaller crimes generally being tried as a misdemeanor. These typically include those offenses which are punishable by imprisonment in a Michigan state prison, as opposed to in a county jail. The penalties for a felony may range from a minimum of 12 months in prison all the way to the death penalty in some extreme cases. These crimes will come with a high cost and in addition to jail time may result in costly fines, community service, educational programs, the requirement to register as a sexual offender and more.
A conviction is damaging in more than one way and often those that are found guilty can continue to deal with the repercussions even after they have served their time.
