The Justice System: Client Responsibilities

In the justice system, even the best and most experienced criminal defense attorney can only put a client on solid footing to succeed in life.  Like in a parent/child relationship, the client, just like a child, has a responsibility to take advantage of opportunities provided by the attorney (parent).

Felony Consequences in The Justice System

In The Justice System, it is obvious that state and federal felony charges can have serious consequences, including substantial incarceration, parole, probation, fines and costs, attorney fees, and non-citizen deportation.

Mr. Freeman keeps client out of jail

Last week, Mr. Freeman helped a client walk out of Oakland County Circuit Court with his family instead of potentially facing months incarcerated. The client was charged with home invasion and the prosecution requested jail time. Mr. Freeman convinced the Judge to agree to give the client a chance to prove himself and sentenced the client under the Holmes Youthful Trainee Act (HYTA). HYTA is a program that gives a defendant an opportunity to prove to the court that he does not deserve to have a criminal record. HYTA is available for defendants 17 to 20 years of age, and for charges that do not carry a maximum penalty of life in prison, major controlled substance offenses, or traffic offenses.

In the distressed economic status of our state, some local governments are trying desperately to increase revenue. Local governments such as Wayne, Oakland, and St. Clair counties charge inmates $60 per day while they serve time in county jails. Yes, that's $60.00 per day to stay in an overcrowded jail!
