Offenses such a driving on a suspended license, drunk driving, and retail fraud are some common Misdemeanors, but there are many more. Identity theft, using a stolen credit card, and felonious assault are Felonies, but again as with Misdemeanors, there are many more. The consequences for criminal charges can be substantial and pricey. This is why you must have a zealous advocate at your side to protect your rights and your future.
The judge in the 41A Shelby Township District Court has a reputation of dispensing highly detailed sentencing and bond conditions. Testing, classes, reporting, and counseling to name a few. Without proper representation, you can expect to be pummeled with these requirements. Moreover, violations and convictions may land you in jail without a respected and experienced defense lawyer. Hiring a skilled criminal defense attorney at the onset may help avoid the never-ending rigors of compliance conditions and keep you out of the county jail.
