Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are different types of Michigan violent crimes?
    Assault occurs when someone threatens or attempts harm, while battery is actually making contact. These crimes increase in severity depending on the injuries caused, identity of the victim, and presence of weapons.
  • What should I do if I am placed under arrest?
    First, you should never resist officers’ efforts during the encounter. Then, exercise your right to counsel by contacting a Michigan criminal defense attorney. Never answer questions or make statements, as you could incriminate yourself.
  • How does sentencing work if I was convicted for a violent offense?
    The starting point is felony versus misdemeanor, with more serious violent crimes being charged as a felony. A misdemeanor is punishable by up to a year in jail, while a felony conviction could mean several years or life in prison.
  • Are there other legal consequences?
    A conviction for a violent crime will remain on your record as a felony or misdemeanor, so it will show up in a background check. You could have difficulties with employment, loans, licenses, and related matters well into the future.
  • Do I have defenses or other options to resolve violent crimes charges?
    There are defenses to these cases, and you will have the opportunity to challenge the government’s evidence. You might also have options to resolve your case by plea bargain, in which you agree to plead guilty to reduce punishment.
  • How can I choose the right criminal defense attorney?
    Ask the right questions that give you insight into the person’s experience, skills, and knowledge. The best Kalamazoo violent crimes lawyer will focus on criminal defense and have logged considerable time in the courtroom.
