Michigan District Courts preside over all misdemeanor criminal matters occurring within its borders. Misdemeanor offenses are generally defined by those crimes where the maximum penalty is incarceration for less than one (1) year and/or payment of monetary fines and costs. Although these offenses do not rise to the level of a felony, a misdemeanor conviction can result in consequences beyond the state’s punitive interests and have the potential to significantly harm a Defendant’s future by reducing their chances of getting into a good school, and even preventing them from working in their chosen field.
Our experienced attorneys know the consequences of misdemeanor convictions as well as the best defenses to utilize in Court.
