Don't forget about The Justice System with the firearms opener of 2017's deer season just days away. Remember that the laws governing hunting will be vigorously enforced. Year after year, I take on clients who are charged with a variety of offenses by Department of Natural Resources Conservation Officers. These officers, who possess wide-ranging authority, have power to investigate and arrest for not only wildlife and hunting offenses, but also for all violations of law. Some say their authority exceeds that of a Michigan State Police Trooper.
Police & You: With Michigan's hunting season upon us - bow starts October 1st - it is important to review the rules, regulations, and laws that govern our quest for the illusive wall-hanger. Even the most trivial violations can result in criminal charges.
