A conviction for a misdemeanor crime in Michigan can become part of your permanent criminal record. If you are convicted later of another crime, the court can consider your prior conviction and impose a harsher sentence in the new case. A conviction for even a minor crime can hurt you when you are looking for a job, applying to rent a house or apartment, or applying for a professional license. A person convicted of misdemeanor possession of marijuana – even a tiny amount for personal use only – can be barred from ever receiving federal financial aid for students.

Only someone familiar with the local criminal court system and cases like yours will know how good your chances are for a favorable outcome in court or at the negotiating table. Our knowledgeable attorneys will take all of this into consideration, assist you in making decisions about your case, and protect your rights.
