Criminal Offense in Oakland County

The Oakland County Prosecutor charged our client with one count of Felonious Assault, Carrying Concealed Weapon, Reckless Discharge of a Firearm, Discharging a Firearm in a Building, and two counts of Felony Firearm.

The incident occurred in the Rochester Hills area. The Oakland County Sheriff made the arrest. The preliminary examination was heard at the 52-3 Rochester Hills District Court and was bound over to the Oakland County Circuit Court in Pontiac.

The following are the allegations alleged in the case: The case involved a dispute between two women over the property of a third party. A gun was pulled by our client to stop the other woman from taking the third party’s property believing that the property should go to our client instead. The gun our client pulled out was ultimately fired in the direction of the other woman. Our client fled and was later pulled over with the loaded gun in her car.

The Felony Firearm charge alone carries a minimum of two years in prison. A conviction for Felony Firearm runs consecutive to any other conviction. This means that if you are charged with felonious assault and the judge orders you to one year in prison for that charge then you would first have to serve two years on felony firearm then the additional year on the felonious assault. Normally offenses run concurrently meaning that the time on the charges would run at the same time and you would only serve two years, but that would not have been the case here. 

Oakland County Lawyer Gets Results

We were able to get both of the Felony Firearm charges dismissed. Once those were dismissed she was looking at 5 to 28 months in prison with a maximum of 5 years.

We were able to convince the judge that prison time was not necessary and she gave a Cobbs to probation. A Cobbs agreement is a legal promise by the judge to sentence a certain way. Our client did not spend a single day in jail and was given linenet probation.
