Michigan Home Invasion Charge Dismissed
Our client was charged with Home Invasion 2nd, a felony that carries up to 15 years in prison and thousands of dollars in fines. After several discussions with the prosecuting attorney and the judge we were able to reach a resolution where our client’s case would be dismissed. The matter was heard at the Frank Murphy Hall of Justice in Downtown Detroit. The judge that heard the matter was Judge Groner.
Home invasion – Breaking and Entering
MCL 750.110a, states that a person who breaks and enters a dwelling with intent to commit a felony, larceny, or assault in the dwelling, a person who enters a dwelling without permission with intent to commit a felony, larceny, or assault in the dwelling, or a person who breaks and enters a dwelling or enters a dwelling without permission and, at any time while he or she is entering, present in, or exiting the dwelling, commits a felony, larceny, or assault is guilty of home invasion in the second degree.
These cases happen most often where someone breaks into a home or garage and steals something. In this particular case our client was charged under an aider and abettor theory. Meaning that he never entered the garage but a person he was with did. As an aider and abettor you can be charged with any offense the primary defendant is charged with.
Wayne County Diversion
Normally Wayne County Diversion is not granted to Home Invasion cases. This client was having some issues with drugs. He went above and beyond what most people would do who were charged with a crime. He attended in-patient treatment, and after he completed he was able to go back to keeping his job and taking care of his family. What was key in this case was establishing that people make mistakes and they are worth giving a second change to.
