Criminal Law in Northern Michigan

Types of criminal law cases include operating while intoxicated, domestic abuse, possession and / or use of a controlled substance and juvenile delinquency.

Being accused of committing a crime is a significant event that can impact the rest of one’s life.  Once accused, you’re up against the government’s huge pool of resources – all of which are working together to make sure you are found guilty of the offense which they are accusing you of.  In your own favor, you must assume that, without a qualified, dedicated northern Michigan attorney on your side of the table, you risk great odds that the justice system will find you guilty - and punish you as harshly as possible.

We’ll invoke your constitutional rights as they relate to the Antrim, Charlevoix, Cheboygan, Emmet, Grand Traverse and Otsego county prosecuting attorneys' use of information and items of physical evidence found during searches and seizures of both you and your property.  We’ll also carefully review evidence collected through drug and alcohol tests as well as any statements or confessions.

Getting Out of Jail

This is the first and foremost thing on every accused’s mind.  In order to secure your release from a northern Michigan jail, you have to provide the courts with good faith monies called a bail bond.  Your bail is held in escrow as you work your way through the legal process and acts as a guarantee to the state that you will appear at your court dates.  If you fail to appear, the State receives your money.  Banner Law will help you obtain that critical bail bond during what may be one of the most challenging times of your life.

Plea Bargains

In most instances the prosecution and accused can reach a compromise as to the amount of guilt bore by the accused and the extent to which it will be punished.  This is where plea bargaining comes in.  The accused’s attorney and the prosecuting attorney negotiate and, when possible, arrive at a mutually agreeable charge and sentence.  Under certain circumstances this can be a powerful tool when minimizing your punishment.
