I had a juvenile case when I was 16 that sent me to prison but listen to this:
In 3 days I got 16 felonies, "I know, I was stupid." It was Van Buren County "Albert Laaksonen" Vs. Berrian County "Some dumb lawyer."
In Van Buren I got 14 felonies and got a ton dropped. Laaksonen even managed to get a safe breaking dropped which has a life sentence! I plead guilty to 1st Degree Home Invasion as an adult and like 6 as juvenile and sentenced as a jevenile, to a special program.
In Berrian County, I caught 2 felonies and plead guilty to 2nd Degree Home Invasion as an adult. Not so bad as Van Buren. With just a 2nd Degree Home Invasion, they raised me to adult court and sent me to prison for 3.5 years.
What happened? Mr. Laaksonen and his skills, especially public speaking, got me the best bargain. While the other lawer in Berrian sucked, and got me 3.5 years with a lesser crime.
I had to go to prison where the Van Buren case got dropped over time. Laaksonen kept me well informed.
