  • Set Aside of Conviction - Michigan

    I pleaded guilty to possession of marijuana in March 2010. My sentence was deferred under 7411 and I was placed on probation for a year. I failed a drug test in January 2011 and lost my 7411, got another year of probation, as well as a week in j...

    Allen’s Answer

    The clock begins when you completed your probation. Expungement will be discretionary with the sentencing judge. For you, it will be very important not to have any further drug issues and no new criminal cases. Further education and full time employment will be frosting on the cake. You will want to retain experienced criminal defense counsel when you are ready to petition the court. If it is denied, you will have to wait another three years before you can file another petition. Good luck!

    The best way to make sure your constitutional rights are protected and your criminal exposure limited or quashed is to retain an experienced Michigan Criminal Defense Attorney as soon as possible. More information is needed and therefore, your lawyer will interview you in detail and strategize with you the best plan of action going forward. In the meantime, do not make any further statements about this matter to anyone, especially the police, without legal counsel at your side.

    Allen’s Answer

    You will want to retain experienced Michigan Criminal Defense Counsel as soon as possible to protect your rights and limit your criminal exposure (no pun intended). Child Pornography and Extortion are two very serious crimes in the state and federal criminal justice systems. It appears you may have been under duress and coercion as it relates to these matters (possible defenses). AVVO is an excellent source to help you find an attorney to assist you. In the meantime, you do not want to make any further statements regarding this matter to anyone, especially online, without advice of counsel. Good luck!

  • Do judges usually order an ETG after failing a PBT at a probation violation hearing?

    This is my first offense and it is a misdemeanor for a non drug related charge.

    Allen’s Answer

    I am not familiar with any judge ordering that a PBT be administered during an actual probation violation hearing. However, assuming one was ordered before, during or after a hearing, an ETG could be ordered to confirm the PBT result suggesting the use of alcohol. It would seem a blood test would be a better or more accurate confirmation to a PBT. In further answer to your question, as a general response, in my experience, most judges do not order ETGs after "failing a PBT at a probation violation hearing".

    • Selected as best answer

    If you are accurate in your representations and you find an experienced Michigan Criminal Defense attorney to assist you, you should be in pretty good shape for the Probation Violation Hearing. The main issue for the judge will be did you actually attend the meetings. The second issue is why did someone else, other than the chairman, sign his name and did they do so with his authorization????
    Good luck!

  • I was detained in a store or retail fraud, no charges were filed at the time, how we ill i know if they are lter filed?

    My dauhter threw some earrings in the cart ,she had left the store, i checked out. Outside i ws stopped. They sid they didnt know what would happen. Tht ws a month ago.

    Allen’s Answer

    You can check with the loss prevention department which "stopped" you or find out from them what police officer or department is investigating the case and check with them. You can also check with the criminal clerk of the District Court where the store is located to see if they have a warrant for your arrest on file. Finally, the easiest and possibly best way to proceed is to retain experienced Michigan Criminal Defense Counsel to do the checking for you and be available to assist and strategize if a warrant is issued. Good luck!

  • How do I start a personal injury claim on owners house insurance due to injury that occurred on their property?

    I went with my friend to his friends party at their house and they had a trampoline. I was jumping on it with my friend and ended up injuring my knee. I thought it was just a sprain that swelled, so I just went home. The next early morning I was i...

    Allen’s Answer

    Now is the time to consult with a Michigan Personal Injury Attorney to analyze your particular situation in order to determine whether you have a viable case to pursue. In addition, your friend's home owner's policy may have a "med pay" provision which may provide some help with your medical bills not covered by your health insurance and without regard to the liability question.

  • Do i need a lawyer for open intoxicants, no ticket was issued. I wasn't even aware it was there

    I was pulled over, really for no reason, he stated it was because I was driving 74 in a construction zone, when I reached for my paperwork in the glove box i discovered a can on the floor which I could not see from the drivers side, no ticket...

    Allen’s Answer

    If you have been charged with a crime, you want to have an attorney at your side for the best possible resolution. It sounds like a complaint and warrant was issued by the prosecutor, instead of a misdemeanor ticket. Granted, if open intox was the only issue, a ticket would have probably been issued at the scene. This suggests that there may be other charges. Yes you want an attorney.

    Allen’s Answer

    More information is needed. You are correct there are number of "stop" and "search" issues along with new case law relating to "view obstruction" on rear view mirrors and the use of drug dogs to establish probable cause to search. Therefore, you will want to retain an experienced Michigan criminal defense attorney for your son as soon as possible. AVVO is an excellent source to help you find such an attorney. Good luck!
