Representing Clients In Wayne County, Oakland County, And All Over The State Of Michigan.
More serious crimes causing more significant damage to people or property are classified as felonies punishable by more than one year in prison. The crime could be anything from writing a bad check (over $500) to first-degree murder. Felonies have eight classes in Michigan, with maximum sentences for each class. Maximum sentencing for any class is life in prison, plus fines and fees.
Whether you’re charged with a domestic violence or sexual crime, it’s important to seek legal council. Felonies and some types of misdemeanors stay on your permanent record and can haunt you even after your sentence is over. Your main goal should be to prevent an inaccurate conviction and minimize the sentence for any conviction you may obtain. Detroit Attorney help you obtain the best possible scenario for your situation.

Just as the misdemeanor charges, assault is an attempt to cause physical injury to another by striking with a hand, or object.
Unlike a misdemeanor charge, a felony assault charge is an assault committed with the intent to murder or maim the victim. This is punishable by up to life imprisonment.
If the offender intends to commit great bodily harm (for example, repeatedly kicking or punching a victim) or strangulation but not murder, the offense is punishable by a maximum sentence of one year in jail.
There are many factors that can change the outcome of a trial, let me look at your case to better understand your situation.
