Getting the Charges Dismissed

Getting charges dismissed outright is more the exception rather than the norm. But it does happen!!! However, as one could anticipate, this type of relief is never offered or suggested by the prosecutor. Their in the business of prosecuting not dismissing. Having said that, this type of extraordinary relief is possible but only if the attorney is well versed in the facts of your case and knows how to apply the relevant law.

Moreover, the lawyer must go the extra mile and make the effort. Sometimes, meetings with “unit chiefs” at the prosecutors office must be scheduled and other times the situation requires meeting with the County Prosecutor himself. Often, counting on the general busy nature of a prosecutors office, filing various motions can influence their flexibility regarding disposition of your case.

When crimes are overcharged or just plain wrongfully charged, a wonderful opportunity for the lawyer is created but only if he/she knows and cares enough to do the right thing.

Even if it appears that "dismissal" is not in cards immediately, there are other avenues to investigate that provide relief which results in dismissal but only after the client proves him/herself worthy. Please refer to my articles on Holmes Youthful Trainee Act and MCL 333.7411 and then call me to discuss it further.
