Firearm and Weapons Offenses

In Michigan there are many criminal offenses that involve the use or mere possession of a firearm or other object defined as a “weapon” for legal classification.

One of the most commonly charged felony offenses is Carrying a Concealed Weapon (CCW) which generally involves a pistol but could also apply to stabbing weapons or any item carried as a weapon for the purpose of assault or defense. Often times the CCW charge is just one of the listed offenses that are charged with additional offenses such as Felony Firearm (2 yr mandatory prison sentence if convicted), Felon in Possession, or Carrying a Weapon with Unlawful Intent.

A Felony Firearm conviction carries a two-year minimum sentence that runs consecutive to any potential incarceration for the other charged offenses. A second conviction carries a mandatory five-year minimum sentence. With crime being so apparent more severe penalties are imposed if a firearm is illegally in you possession while committing other crimes.

“Hiring Clint was the best decision I could have ever made. I was facing a very serious charge with very serious consequences and Clint was nothing but the best. When I first got in touch with Clint, he was honest. He informed me of what I was facing (based upon the information I gave him) and what my possible outcomes could be, then he reassured me. He said, ‘What’s done is done and now we have to focus on making it right and we’ll do it together.’ Throughout my ordeal, Clint was accessible, kept me informed, and worked diligently to provide me with the best possible outcome. I couldn’t have dreamed for a better result. Had I not contacted him, I don’t know where I’d be, but I know that because I did I am in a much greater frame of mind and I have a sense of peace that is indescribable. If you’re in a situation that feels hopeless, please contact Clint. He will work as hard as it takes to help you and make your situation better.” – Jason
