Man In Battle Creek Enters First Offender Program To Dismiss Drug Possession

Oct 26, 2016, by Maurice Davis in Case Results, Criminal Defense, Drug Crimes

If you are ever charged with a drug-related crime in Michigan, it’s critical to speak with an experienced criminal defense lawyer, who will be by your side through the entire criminal process and work tirelessly for the best possible result. Such was the case for a man when he faced a grim reality after being charged with felony possession of cocaine in the Battle Creek area. Since this type of drug possession conviction demanded the suspension of his driver’s license and his employment as an auto mechanic required a valid license to drive the automobiles he was working on, he knew that he’d probably be fired in addition to the other serious consequences that accompany a drug crime. Therefore, the man needed to find a Michigan criminal defense attorney. One with considerable experience with similar drug cases. This brought the man to Detroit’s Davis Law Group, who consulted with him to evaluate the situation and begin working towards a solution.

Defense attorney Maurice Davis used his considerable experience handling felony Michigan drug cases to negotiate with the prosecutor and by presenting his client’s previously clear criminal history, he successfully facilitated his client’s participation in a first offender program. This program does not include a license suspension and after completing its requirements, the court will dismiss the drug possession charge, so she can easily move past this transgression without the trappings of a drug conviction affecting his license, his record, or his future opportunities.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
