19 being charged with armed robbery he has 2other co defendants they robbed four people of marijuanna and money he is a third habitual. What can he do to reduce or get sentence dropped
First of all, your attorney will need to explore all possible defenses to fight the case or that can be used to negotiate a lower offense in plea bargaining. If you do not work out a plea bargain or go to trial, the question is then whether you will plea it out. As a Hab 3, your attorney will need to work up your guideline range on a very harsh offense with Hab 3. This will put you in a very high range which is the job of your attorney to know as soon as possible. Then, your attorney will need to explore all mitigating sentence issues, such as mental illness, among other things. The judge may entertain a sentence agreement but usually it is within the guideline range absent substantial and compelling reasons that grab the court's attention and justify a lower sentence which is known as a departure (from the guidelines).
Lastly, HYTA is not available for armed robbery as I noticed age 19 mentioned.
Are you on bond for this offense? Or are you asking for someone else?See question
I rather just to the jail time how to I get out of it?
Sobriety Court is quite intensive and not for everyone. I know you said money is an issue. However try to obtain a lawyer to file a motion for modification of your sentence. In the motion, your lawyer can outline a request and plan for conventional probation with the component of substance abuse-alcohol counseling and relapse prevention. Good luck with this matter.See question
Long story short, I am on probation current in Mount Pleasant, Michigan and received a new charge downstate in Clarkston, MI. The new charge ended up being dismissed under MCL 771.1. My probation officer in Mount Pleasant violated me for the new c...
It sounds like you made out well by getting a MCL 771.1 with a dismissal after a period of time. It is definitely a violation of probation. I am not sure what the crime was in Clarkston. Disorderly? Trespass? Those are still crimes but less is better when it comes to new criminal activity while on probation. Anyway you will need to get a lawyer to represent your interests.See question

Consensual texting between adults is not a crime unless a minor is involved. In general for the possible range of crimes that could be involved, the statute of limitations is six years. However if a minor was involved it could be ten years.See question
I'm turning myself in tomorrow and I'm scared I embezzled $270 from my work place I never been in trouble with the law before and I'm scared and don't know what to do
It may not be as bad as you think. Hire a lawyer. Based upon the amount involved and paying it back (restitution), you should be able to get this case under control. I am guessing that you confessed or that there is a paper trail leading to your doorstep. In Macomb County, we have been able to manage Embezzlement cases involving a few hundred dollars to a few hundred thousand dollars without jail. Depending upon your age, you may be eligible for HYTA (age 17 but under age 24). HYTA means that the court will allow you to earn a dismissal. We have also negotiated reduction of felony embezzlement cases to a misdemeanor. Again restitution is always a component of a sent nice for embezzlement. Good luck with this matter.See question
I am facing two felonies distrabution of a controlled substance analogues I sold to teo undercovers bit I was released from jail the same day I got busted because im a at home care taker I have nothing in my ecord but a misdemeanor what do I do?
You need to consult with a lawyer.. Your record does not sound that bad. I can tell you from my experience in Macomb County that we are often able to get cases like yours under control. You have not said whether you have a lawyer. Also there are other factors such as the quantity of drugs involved.See question
First of all, I AM NOT court ordered to go to AA nor am I on probation. I simply want to hire a lawyer to try to get my license reinstated through the district court judge because I am not even eligible for a hearing with the Secretary of State un...
If you have been going to AA meetings but do not have sign in sheets, there may be a way for you to verify it without trying to backdate sign in sheets which is not recommended. In our law firm, we would recommend that you have individuals provide you with letters that verify that you have attended meetings as you have stated. In many cases people do not realize that they will need to sign in sheets in the future. It is very simple to answer the question at a license appeal hearing when asked why you do not have sign in sheets by saying that you did not know you needed them. In addition, as I said you can back up your prior attendance with letters from individuals that can attest to your prior attendance record. The state hearing officers are very good detectives and can usually spot phony Evidence. It is a recipe for disaster to wind up in this scenario.See question
I am on probation for owi. I am a clerk at a gas station that sells beer. Recently, an agent from the liquor control commission presented me with a citation for furnishing alcohol to a minor, in an undercover sting using a decoy. The agent compare...
The agent was merely placating you. It is not a civil infraction, it is a criminal misdemeanor offense. You should report it to your probation officer to avoid a situation where you are accused of failing to disclose this matter. That is the advice that we give to our clients under these circumstances. Later, should it result in a probation violation, we also let the judge know that it was disclosed immediately. We can't guarantee that you get credit for disclosing it, but it is better than the alternative.See question

This is unfortunate and I am sorry about your situation. You need to file a motion in the courts where the injustice occurred to set aside the determination. At future hearings, you will want to raise the defense that someone stole your identity. This will be fairly expensive if you hire a lawyer but that is the best way to handle this travesty. Good luck sir.See question
