Will I serve jail time?

There is no real way to answer this question without knowing more about your case. Every case is complex and every judge is different. Your past criminal record and the severity of the charge certainly have an impact on any potential sentence that may be imposed. If you are found guilty on a first offense misdemeanor charge, the chances of you staying out of jail are strong, seeing that Michigan’s jails are overcrowded and the state has made a concerted effort to reduce the number of individuals incarcerated. Your presentation in court is considered as well and we will work with you to make sure you make the best possible impression on the court.

If the crime was malicious, intentional and the judge determines that you pose a threat to society then jail time may be more likely; however, we have a track record of keeping clients out of jail even under the most extreme circumstances. If you are sentenced to serve time, the attorneys at LEWIS & DICKSTEIN may be able to convince a judge to lessen the consequence to parole.

The bottom line is that every case and defendant is different and the approach at sentencing and plea-bargaining changes with every case. We will customize a plan specifically to fit you and the facts of your case to give you the best chance of avoiding the inside of a jail or prison cell.
