Get the Best Traverse City Attorney to Defend Your Felony Charges
If you are facing felony charges, you need an experienced criminal defense lawyer to defend you. Felony charges consist of crimes punishable by greater than one year in prison. Michigan felonies carry penalties of 2 years to 20 years in prison, unless it is a life offense. There are also High Court misdemeanors, which are treated as felonies since you can be sentenced to more than one year in prison.
Collateral Effects of Felony Charges
As a former Prosecuting Attorney, and 20 year defense attorney, Patrick Fragel is aware of how a felony record will limit your voting rights, gun rights, entitlement to public benefits and career opportunities for the rest of your life. Drug convictions, sex crimes, and crimes of fraud and dishonesty each have harsh consequences of their own. For example, most drug convictions result in mandatory suspension of your Michigan drivers license. For a detailed evaluation of the collateral consequences of a felony conviction, contact Patrick S.
