Felony Firearm Dismissed
Our client was charged with Felony Firearm out of the 34th Romulus District Court. A conviction for felony firearm would have meant our a mandatory two years in prison.
The client made the right call and that call was to Michigan felony firearm lawyer, Aaron J. Boria (734) 453-7806.
The complaining witness, a neighbor’s contractor, claimed that our client hit him in the face with a shotgun after the two of them argued over the placement of a privacy fence.
Our client was charged Felony Firearm, Felonious Assault, and at the preliminary examination the prosecutors tried to add an additional charge of Assault with Intent to do Great Bodily Harm, a 10 year offense. The judge agreed with out argument and refused to add the GBH charge.
Felony Firearm In Michigan
In Michigan, a first offense conviction for Felony Firearm results in a mandatory two years in prison, and a second offense is a five year minimum.
Felony Firearm runs consecutive to any other charge. This means that if our client had been convicted of both offenses he would have to first serve two years in prison for the felony firearm before he would get credit for any jail term of the felonious assault.
Felonious Assault In Michigan
Felonious assault carries up to 4 years in prison and a fine of up to $6,000.00. This means that if our client had been convicted of both offenses and was given the maximum penalty he could be forced to pay thousands of dollars and be confined to prison for 6 years.
Criminal Defense Lawyer
Our client made the right move and contact criminal defense lawyer, Aaron J. Boria. The case dragged on for several months. The complaining witness in this case produced several photos of his eye that looked gory. He also claimed he had major problems seeing and had to undergo surgery. The evidence against our client was overwhelming.
After holding the preliminary examination and numerous negotiations with the prosecuting attorney and the gun board we were able to get the Felony Firearm charged dismissed. In exchange he did have to do sometime in the local county jail where he was given work release – but he will not be going to prison.
Even in this case where the facts were stacked against us were able to get amazing results. Call (734) 453-7806
