In one weekend from May 14 through May 15, Michigan State Police Jackson Troopers handled 68 calls for service, including several domestic assault complaints, OWI’s, larcenies, and several crashes.
Saturday, May 14
• Troopers responded to the 100 block of S. Union St., Parma, MI. to investigate a Domestic. A 33-year-old man was arrested for assaulting his 15-year-old daughter. Because this was allegedly an assault by one family member on another, this will be classified as domestic violence. If the man has no prior record and there was not an injury, the maximum possible sentence is likely to be 93 days in jail. The best domestic violence attorneys, otherwise known as criminal defense attorneys, will have extensive experience handling family assault charges and a track record of not guilty verdicts. The best trial lawyers are most likely able to get a favorable plea bargain when appropriate because they present as a credible threat to the prosecutor.

• At approximately 2 a.m., Troopers were dispatched to the 9400 block of Lee Rd., Grass Lake Twp., to investigate a Domestic Assault. The 45-year-old husband and his 46-year-old wife were both arrested for Domestic after assaulting each other. Both received minor injuries. As stated above, the most experienced domestic violence defense attorneys will be passionate and zealous in their defense of their clients and will tirelessly pursue the best possible outcome.
• At approximately 4:30 a.m., Troopers were dispatched to a rollover crash on Fowler Rd. near Snow Rd., Hanover Twp. The 21-year-old driver was arrested for OWI with a BAC of .13%. OWI charges are some of the most complicated criminal cases. Many cases, like domestic assaults for example, are generally he-said-she-said cases without physical evidence. OWI cases on the other hand, frequently have constitutional issues, scientific issues (regarding the PBT and Breathalyzer), credibility issues regarding the officer’s description of his observations, standardized field sobriety testing issues and more. The best OWI lawyers will have extensive experience handling not only the factual issues that may be present in an OWI case but also be proficient with scientific issues and evidentiary matters. Most OWI lawyers are not truly experts in their field and the potential client must be very careful about who they consider hiring to ensure they get the best representation possible.
