Possession Marijuana – No Jail No Probation – White Lake

Client was charged with possession of marijuana. This was his third offense, which can be charged as a felony so we had to proceed carefully. He finished a 30-day jail term for his second offense that we did not represent him on.

Michigan criminal lawyer, Aaron J. Boria was able to get the judge to agree to allow him to receive credit for the jail term on the previous case, pay fines and costs, and leave. This meant that he won’t not do another day in jail, won’t serve a day on probation, won’t test for drugs – nothing.

Possession of Marijuana

A first offense and even a second offense of possession of marijuana is a misdemeanor in Michigan; however, a third offense is a two-year felony.

The officer in this case must have issued a ticket without doing a background check or submitted it to the city attorney’s office and they did not forward the charge to the state prosecutor’s office. As a result he was not charged with the felony. It is possible that the state could catch wind of it or the city attorney could dismiss and allow the state to reissue so it was important that we treated this matter with the utmost care.
