Criminal Cases

Getting into criminal trouble is always a dread full position, but fortunately if you have no prior criminal record, you may be able to keep your record clear.  The Homes Youthful Trainee Act (HYAT) has recently been amended to include individuals up to the age of 23.  What this means is if you have no prior criminal record and are over the age of 21, previous HYTA age cutoff, you can still qualify for HYTA if the prosecutor and Judge agrees.  You will need a good advocate on your side to argue for HYTA, so don't always rely on the system to get you the best possible outcome.  Remember, we have an adversarial system.  Therefore, you have to look out for your own interest and do not expect the Judge or prosecutor to help you.  Call us now if you need representation in Wayne, Oakland or Macomb counties, we can step in and help.
