When is a death not considered wrongful in Michigan?

It is hard to imagine being in a situation in which you have to hurt or kill someone to survive. It is often unbelievable even when it has happened. If a person must use deadly force for their own sakes or the sakes of others nearby, that person should not have to suffer under the weight of the law.

Michigan crime tip unit celebrates its crime-solving contribution

From the streets of Detroit to the highways of the Upper Peninsula, suspected criminal activity happens every day in Michigan. Citizens work with police and federal agents to keep their parts of the state safe, but a desire for higher security can lead too far if a person is accused or, worse, convicted of a crime.

Can Michigan police keep asking questions if a suspect is silent?

Lawyers know about Miranda rights after a Supreme Court case required law enforcement to inform arrested suspects of rights to silence and legal representation. One of the complications of this law occurred in the Wolverine State, leading to the historic case of Michigan v. Moseley.

Should the law consider local court costs 'illegal taxes?'

Nobody likes to go to court for a criminal matter, and more importantly, nobody likes to be convicted. Then, to add insult to injury, most criminal courts will levy exorbitant court costs against the defendants they convict. Unfortunately, most low-income criminal defendants can't afford to pay these costs, and the money owed can cause problems for defendants later on down the road -- even resulting in further jail time.

Michigan legislators do poorly in preventing drunk driving

The residents of St. Clair Shores, Michigan, want safe streets for themselves and for their families. One of the most important parts of making that happen is keeping drunk drivers off the streets so those drunk drivers don't wreck property, injure some people, kill others or wind up in criminal defense cases. After all, drunk drivers tend to be careless drivers, and they react poorly to dangerous situations, imperiling everyone around them.

Doctor indicted for selling prescription drugs

Residents of St. Clair Shores, Michigan, and other parts of Michigan sincerely hope that most of their local medical practitioners are fine, upstanding people who conduct their businesses in skilled, informed and ethical ways. Unfortunately, that is not always the case, and some medical practitioners engage in conduct that is so reprehensible that they wind up needing criminal defense representation in an effort to deal with the consequences of their unprofessional actions.
