They charging me as a witness to an armed robbery case.
It depends upon the case. If an aggravated assault or serious injury is inflicted by any person, the person shall be sentenced to a minimum term of imprisonment of not less than 2 years. This means prison.
Being a witness to a crime is not an offense. If you participated, or aided and abetted in the commission of an armed robbery, that is a different story. Aiders and abettors (for example, a get away driver; a look out, etc.) also can be convicted of armed robbery even if that person did not have the gun.
My advice is for you to immediately hire a lawyer to help you.See question
I'm on Michigan misdemeanor probation 7411 with random drug testing
The Court will not be sympathetic. If you do not comply you will likely be charged with probation violation. If your probation is violated you could be incarcerated and lose the 7411 status. If you need to borrow money to comply with probation you should do so.See question
A family friend has been arrested, but not yet charged (awaiting blood test results). She was released without a return date. Supposedly she will have a Summons and Complaint or an Arrest Warrant once the blood test comes back. With priors that ol...
She cannot avoid charges by running. Extradition is possible if she leaves Michigan and a warrant is issued. They will also take action against her driver's license or her ability to obtain a driver's license in the future. It is up to the prosecutor to enhance for a 3rd offense - but the likelihood of it being enhanced is high. Your friend should hire a lawyer to deal with her case. If she wants to move out of State her lawyer can seek permission for her to do so (as a condition of bond, or as part of an interstate compact if she receives probation).See question
I was with a friend a few weeks ago. I was pulled over by the local police after i left his house and they found drugs (Heroin) in my car!! Now I'm being charged with possession. Is there anything i can do?? Or am i just screwed?? Help Please....
No you are not just screwed. Merely being present in a location where drugs were found is not enough for conviction. Having an experienced lawyer defend you is your best bet. Your lawyer will help formulate a strategy with you to defend this case in the best possible way.See question
I was arrested on misdemeanor.assault and battery in Michigan while visiting and want to go back to Illinois .I'm on probation now after serving twenty one days waiting on court .They reduced it to drunken disorderly.but gave me 6 months probation...
Extradition is possible, but for a misdemeanor it is not likely. You should follow the sentence given by the court, and seek permission to return to Illinois. If you fail to comply with the court's sentence a bench warrant will be issued for your arrest. A bench warrant is stressful, and may impact you in the future (it may prevent you from traveling, it may lead to problems with renewing your driver's license, it can impact your ability to get a job, etc.). You may want to seek the help of a lawyer.See question
Since its not a felony any more i would like to know what type of misdemeanor this is ? And whats the minimum and maximum sentence for this type of misdemeanor charge.
Possessing or retaining a financial transaction device without the card holder's consent is usually charged as a 4 year felony. Under the attempt statute (Michigan Compiled Law 850.92) the offense is a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment for not more than 2 years and a fine of not more than $1000. The minimum possible sentence is no incarceration. Sentencing is up to the Judge. The sentence could include: incarceration; probation with conditions (reporting, drug/alcohol testing, community service, etc.), fines/costs/fees/restitution, a combination of any of these options. This type of conviction is typically referred to as a "high court misdemeanor".See question
I got a ticket in January and it has been moved twice now and is set in may, four months from the infraction. What are the chances it gets dismissed or lowered since this is my first ticket ever and haven't been pulled over since? If I took a driv...
The statute of limitations is not an issue because you have already been issued the ticket. There is not a court rule with regards to the number of times that a traffic ticket can be adjourned.
There is a chance you can achieve a reduction in your ticket. The factors that are relevant to this determination include: your driving record; the facts of your case; the nature of the ticket you were given; whether or not you were already given a break by the state trooper; whether or not the State trooper believes if you were rude or gave him/her a hard time; the prosecutor/city attorney handling the case.
You may be offered a driving class by the prosecutor/city attorney and/or the state of Michigan to avoid having the ticket abstracted to your driving record. Unless you have a hearing on the ticket and prevail, or if the prosecutor/city attorney dismisses the ticket (a reduction may occur. A dismissal is very unlikely to occur), you will have to pay fines/costs connected with the ticket.
Your best bet to get a favorable resolution is to hire a lawyer to help you.See question

He is not prevented from sending a ticket through the mail, but I doubt he will. Under this circumstance if he wanted to give you a ticket he probably would have given you one at the time he observed you without the seatbelt on. The fact that this occurred on the property of a private business, rather than on a public roadway, may be a reason why you did not receive a ticket. I would not worry about this anymore if I were you.See question
I have asked for years for representation and have come up with because of absolute immunity, you can't do it. So since no one was willing to take this up, could I file a lawsuit on my own? The Prosecutor according to the Under-sheriff was the o...
You are free to represent yourself. However, you do so at your own risk. You will be subject to the same court rules, rules of procedure, rules of evidence, and Michigan laws as a lawyer. Filing and litigating cases in an improper manner can lead to a dismissal of your claim and possible sanctions (money that you could be liable to pay the other side).
There may be a reason that other lawyers have refused to take your case. You may want to find a lawyer through AVVO in the area of civil litigation that you can consult with on an hourly basis and get some sound legal advice if you cannot find someone to represent you. A lawyer will typically only take a civil case if there is a valid cause of action, damages to the client, and the ability to collect monetary damages for those damages. Good luck.See question
