Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor
Not Guilty! The verdict the Jury rendered after 12 minutes of deliberating on the charge of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
Charles Hubbert was criminally charged with Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor, a criminal misdemeanor charge that carries up to 90 days in jail and/or a $500 fine plus costs.
The Wayne County Prosecutors Office had offered Charles a plea bargain in exchange for a plea of guilt to contributing to the delinquency of a minor. The plea bargain was the promise of no jail, no probation, and a small fine but contributing to the delinquency of a minor would be forever etched into his record. Even with such a great offer on the table Charles rejected it asserting his innocence and proceeded to trial knowing very well that if found guilty he would very likely go to jail.
In order to sustain a guilty verdict the prosecution had to prove that Charles did by act or word, encouraged, contributed toward, caused, or tended to cause a child to become neglected or delinquent and come under the jurisdiction of the family court.
The criminal trial of Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor lasted one day. Four witnesses were called, including a Melvindale Detective and Charles Hubbert himself.
Charles stated, “I did not contribute to the delinquency of a minor, I love that child!”
Charles is a great man; he did everything he could to protect the child he was accused of contributing to the delinquency of. Sometime the prosecution is too quick to charge someone with a crime without getting the true story.
The trial took place at the 24th District Court in Allen Park, Michigan. Judge Page presided over the proceedings.
In 12 minutes the jury returned with the verdict of Not Guilty, acquitting Charles of the charge of Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor. Charles walked out of court a free man.
