Felonious Assault – Gun Charges Dismissed – Livingston

Our client was in Brighton waiting in line to get a coffee when another driver decided that he was going to cut the line of cars waiting to order their coffee. When he cut into the line he was flicking off other drivers and calling people names. Our client was one of the people who were cut off. Unfortunately for our client he made the wrong choice and pulled out his gun.

The police came and arrested our client. He was taken to the Brighton police station and booked. His matter was heard at the 53rd District Court in Brighton, Michigan before judge Reader.

Our client made the right choice and called Michigan criminal lawyer, Aaron J. Boria (734) 453-7806.

When we were done, our client plead to a 90 day misdemeanor for brandishing, the prosecution agreed not to bring any other charges, and he received 6 months of non-reporting probation.

Livingston County Judges and the Livingston County Prosecutor’s Office are known for their thought stance on crime. To obtain the result that criminal lawyer, Aaron J. Boria did was an impressive win for our client.

One, the defendant did an act that would cause a reasonable person to fear or apprehend an immediate battery.

Two, the defendant intended make the complainant fear an immediate battery.

Three, that at the time, the defendant appeared to have the ability to commit a battery.

Five, that the defendant committed the assault with a dangerous weapon, in this case a gun.

A conviction for felonious assault in Michigan could land you in prison for up to 4 years and thousands of dollars in fines.

Felony Firearm – Michigan

Anytime a felony is committed that involves a firearm, such as the felonious assault mentioned above, then the prosecutor can also charge felony firearm. Felony firearm is a very serious offense in Michigan and carries a mandatory 2 years in prison on top of any other time that you are ordered to serve.
