Michigan Hate Crime Lawyer

A hate crime is an offense which is committed against a person due to their race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, disability or nationality. Crimes of this nature are harshly prosecuted. A defendant convicted of a hate crime may face years or even a lifetime of imprisonment, as well as fines, probation, loss of employment and much more. The lasting consequences of a conviction, long after the sentence has been served, can haunt a person forever.

Since there are various hate crimes that can be committed, there will also be different penalties that will be in relation to the particular crime and the extent with which it was carried out. Those with multiple convictions can also face an increased sentence. There are many organizations out there on top of the efforts exerted by law enforcement to put an end to hate crimes. In the heat of everything they can become overzealous; charging innocent individuals or imposing unfair consequences.
