Felony and Misdemeanor Charges in Michigan
In Michigan, a person can be charged with a felony or misdemeanor. Michigan does not use a “class” system for criminal charges. A misdemeanor is an offense punishable by 1 year or less in jail and up to 2 years on probation. Typically, misdemeanors are divided into 93-day offenses and 1-year offenses. Felony charges are more serious than misdemeanors, at least relative to the punishments that may be imposed by a judge. A felony can result in a prison sentence; some offenses carry maximum sentences of a term of years, and other felony convictions can result in life prison sentences.
Federal felony and misdemeanor charges are charged in the United States District Courts. Although our office is geographically closest to the United States District Courts covering the Eastern District of Michigan, we routinely handle cases throughout the state and, in some cases, other states within the United States. Federal crimes are prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys who are typically highly skilled in court and very knowledgeable in the law. Building a successful defense in federal court takes tremendous skill, tenacity, and experience.
