Imagine, you go to a certain area in the City of Detroit for work purposes or for some other non-criminal purpose. The police stop you and ask what you are doing there. When you explain your legitimate purpose for being in the area, the police are skeptical. You are issued a ticket for loitering in a place known for prostitution and narcotics. This ticket is a misdemeanor, punishable by up to 93 days in jail and a $1000.00 fine.
According to WXYZ Channel 7 news, this seems to be a growing trend. They report that 2 dozen people claim to have been wrongfully issued misdemeanor tickets in a similar scenario. In light of the nature of the tickets, countless others could be simply paying the tickets because they are too embarrassed to appear in court. Don't let this happen to you.
