  1. Can the court or prosecutor change a plea deal after it has been agreed to by the defendant , and should it be in writing ?

    I agree with Mr. Hilf. If the plea offer was placed on the record, it is as good as if it were in writing. If the court will not honor the deal, you will be permitted to withdraw your plea. If the prosecutor wants to revoke the deal, you can ask the court to enforce it. Best of luck!

    I would recommend you hire a criminal defense lawyer to get a copy of your criminal history and advise you regarding what you were convicted of and determine if some type of error has been made. If your CCH shows incorrectly that you were convicted of a felony, there should be an easy fix. If you were misled and you were unwittingly convicted of a felony based upon misinformation, you need to get that fixed as well. The best way to start would be to talk with a lawyer about your situation.

    Court appointed attorneys are generally reserved for people who cannot afford private or retained attorneys. However, public defenders have very little time and resources to work on your case and result in less justice, according to research done by the Justice Policy Institute. The court appointment system has been found to be highly deficient in Michigan with many court appointed lawyers being so overloaded by cases that, despite their best efforts, they are unable to provide effective...

    I've handled many of these cases and the type of error in the system you are reporting is more common than you may thing. Unfortunately, judges in Oakland County have a reputation for just assuming defendant's are guilty of violation of probation before the facts are properly and fairly litigated. What judge is your husband's case assigned to? The judge in Oakland County can make a big difference as some are more pragmatic than others. With proper preparation and an aggressive defense, a...

    Try using the ICHAT system on the Michigan State Police website. Hiring a private investigator for a background check or just a criminal history check should work as well.

    You are asking the wrong question. You should not "fight" the ticket but you ABSOLUTELY should go to court on it. Most city attorneys and prosecutors will give someone a break if they ask for a hearing on a ticket. You are not "fighting" it but you are just trying to work it out. Points alone or even a moving violation without points can have a significant and expensive impact on your insurance and will undoubtedly have a negative impact on the resolution of any future traffic ticket. Your...

    Regretfully, the belief that the judge has power to give you a deal it just a popular misconception. The only person that has power to give you a plea bargain is the prosecutor and depending on whether your case is being prosecuted by a city attorney or a state prosecutor makes a huge difference. The location of your case is very important as well. In Oakland County for example, there may be very little chance of a substantial plea bargain where in Wayne County, with the right attorney,...
