    Answered . Best advice is to get a Criminal Defense attorney AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. A criminal defense attorney can go through the court process along with what is likely to happen.

    Answered . You definitely need to hire an attorney. If you are convicted of a crime, you will face difficult consequences for the rest of your life. Get an attorney right away. If the police ask you any questions, tell them that you won't answer them until you get an attorney.

Macomb County will occasionally reduce felonies for first time offenders to misdemeanors (with restitution) if you enter into a plea. You have a right to a trial, of course. The prosecutor must first prove that there is enough evidence to charge you with this crime at a preliminary exam which should take place within 14 days of your arraignment. You should request court appointed counsel if you cannot afford to retain an attorney. If you need time to come up with money, you can always substitute your appointed counsel with retained at any time, but you need an attorney at all proceedings so request a court appointed if you need one. If the prosecutor can meet this burden, the case goes forward to be set for trial or plea. Best.
