Detroit Airport Criminal Defense Attorney
Defendants charged with crimes at the airport face specially assigned prosecutors and harsh judges. It takes a uniquely qualified and experienced defense lawyer to defend a client on airport crimes successfully.
Special Airport Crimes Prosecutor
Because so many felony and misdemeanor charges are filed based on incidents at the airport, a specially assigned prosecutor handles many of the airport cases. For many reasons, prosecutors zealously and aggressively charge alleged criminal activity at Detroit Metro Airport. Charges such as retail fraud, disorderly conduct, entering restricted areas/trespassing, drug offenses, and weapons possession are common in many courts; however, prosecutors are even more aggressive with offenses allegedly committed at the airport. The Special Airport Prosecutor can also bring charges for less familiar crimes, which are unique to the airport, like divulging secret information, entering a secured area, failing to follow an order of airport police, and making fraudulent statements or representation to airline employees. The Detroit Metro Airport criminal defense attorneys with LEWIS & DICKSTEIN, P.L.L.C. can protect and defend you on felony and misdemeanor charges.
Penalties for Airport Crimes and Traffic Offenses
A conviction for a crime at Detroit Metropolitan Airport can have many direct and indirect consequences. In addition to the possibility of jail or prison, fines, costs, and probation, a court can order a defendant to attend therapy and educational classes, perform community service, not travel on public transportation, not enter the airport for a period of time, and much more. Some indirect consequences of a felony or misdemeanor conviction include:
- loss of employment,
- inability to get a promotion,
- loss or restricted professional license,
- inability to own or possess a firearm,
- loss of the right to vote,
- impaired credit, and
- damaged reputation.
Frequently, persons charged with a crime at Detroit Metro Airport are out-of-state residents, such as business travelers, people coming into town to visit family, and those on vacation. Airport criminal defense attorneys who regularly practice in the 34th District Court and handle these cases know that there are often ways to resolve them without the client ever having to appear in court personally. Although there are cases where a personal appearance is necessary, traveling back to Michigan can often be avoided. Delay can result in a warrant being issued and possible arrest and extradition back to Wayne County, Michigan, for prosecution.
Hiring an Experienced, Successful Airport Criminal Defense Attorney
The need to hire a very good lawyer promptly is necessary because the stakes are high. Representation by a discount or bargain lawyer often results in an outcome far more expensive, in terms of money and stress, than going with someone well qualified and highly effective. Don’t trust your fate to the lowest bidder, and make sure that the lawyer you hire will do whatever is necessary to make sure your case is resolved efficiently and in your favor.
Why hire a criminal defense attorney with years of experience and a track record of successful representation?
