A felony conviction in Michigan can not only lead to a long prison sentence, financially crippling fines, and damage to one’s reputation, but it can affect an individual’s ability to find and obtain housing, employment, and education.
With so much on the line, Michiganders who are accused of committing a felony need to be sure they are protecting themselves as fully as possible. This means knowing and understanding the charges one faces, as well as what prosecutors need to prove in order to obtain a conviction. Then, an accused individual should assess the strength of the prosecution’s case and identify any weaknesses that can be exploited. Once that is accomplished, then a criminal defendant will have to decide if he or she wants to seek a plea bargain or if he or she wants to take the matter to trial.
