Michigan Lawyers Help Defendants Obtain Probation and Parole
DETROIT DEFENSE ATTORNEYS WORK HARD TO AVOID OR LIMIT IMPRISONMENT
If you are charged with a crime and the police have strong evidence against you, you might not be able to avoid conviction no matter how good an attorney you have. However, if you have Federal Criminal Attorneys of Michigan in your corner, we might still be able to help you get an early release from prison through parole or avoid imprisonment altogether through probation.
PRACTICAL CRIMINAL LEGAL COUNSEL SEEK PROBATION AS AN ALTERNATIVE TO PRISON
If your crime is a minor one, the prosecution’s case has weaknesses or there are special circumstances favoring clemency, we might be able to negotiate a guilty plea in exchange for a suspended sentence. In addition, probation may be available, allowing you to stay out of prison as long as you do not violate any of the conditions imposed. These may include:
- Obeying the law
- Reporting regularly to your probation officer
- Not taking any illegal drugs
- Undergoing drug testing
- Not leaving the jurisdiction without permission
- Not associating with known criminals
- Complying with any other restrictions the court may impose
If you violate any of these conditions, the court can and probably will revoke your probation and send you to jail. However, if you retain us to represent you at the probation revocation hearing, we will do our best to prevent that result by presenting appropriate mitigating evidence.
SKILLED LAWYERS WORK TO ASSIST CLIENTS WITH APPLICATIONS FOR PAROLE
Most prison sentences allow for the possibility of applying for early release on parole after the convicted person serves a certain amount of time. In Michigan, the probation board will consider a number of factors in deciding whether to grant you parole, such as your conduct in prison, the risk of your committing more crimes and the weight of statements by victims and other relevant parties. If you are released, you will have to abide by rules similar to those for probation. However, parole is discretionary. If you retain us to represent you at a parole hearing, we will strive to increase your chances of a successful outcome by preparing the most compelling case possible.
