Felony Firearm

The criminal charge of Felony firearm carries a mandatory two-year prison sentence that is served consecutive to any other offense. This means that the person would have to serve two years on top of any other penalty if convicted of felony firearm, a seriously harsh penalty. 

Felony firearm is charged just about any time a felony is committed and a gun is present. In this case, there was one gun but two charges to felony fire arm because the offense can be charged for each additional felony alleged by the prosecutor. 

In this case, Boria was able to obtain a deal with the prosecutor dismissing the felony firearm charges, which eliminated the mandatory prison time.

The other charges our client was facing in this in this case by the Oakland County Prosecutor included Carrying a Concealed Weapon, Reckless Discharge of a Firearm in a Building, Felonious Assault, and Reckless Use of a Firearm.

The Carrying a Concealed Weapon charge by itself could land someone in prison for up to five years. The other charges all carried significant time in jail or prison. 

Boria was able to negotiate a Cobbs agreement with the judge for a guarantee that our client would not be sent to jail when it came time for sentencing. A Cobbs agreement is a promise about the penalty of the case from the judge that doesn’t involve the prosecutor.

In this particular case, it was alleged that our client was at a trailer park and while she was at the trailer there was an argument over another individual’s permission to be there. Neither the defendant nor the complainant in this case owned the trailer. The defendant in this case pointed a pistol at the complainant and fired rounds in her direction as well as the ceiling, floor, and walls. It was even claimed that some of the rounds went into a near by trailer. The defendant then took off and was pulled over down the road. The gun was found loaded in the trunk.

A term of probation without any period of incarceration in this case is a great result.
