Dealing with Probation Violations
July 26, 2018
When a person is convicted of a crime a common outcome is they are put on probation. Probation is a period of time in which a person is under court supervision. The person will have many requirements such as educational classes, community service, and drug testing. Probation is the alternative to jail.
When a person fails to complete probation requirements, the judge will haul them back into court. The stakes are high in these situations. The person could face jail or prison time for a probation violation. This article provides some guidance for dealing with probation and probation violations.
When You Are First Put on Probation
I always tell people to try and complete as many probation requirements as soon as they are put on probation. Don’t procrastinate. If the judge orders you to do forty hours of community service, try to knock out the hours as soon as possible.
People are busy, with work, family, and other commitments. Waiting until...
Marijuana Law Updates from ArborYpsi Law
July 21, 2018
What’s on the horizon for the marijuana laws in Michigan? Big changes may be coming soon. Here’s a look at a few changes that might happen.
Recreational Use and Possession of Marijuana
Michigan voters will go to the polls in next November to decide if marijuana use and possession will be legal for recreational use. About ten years ago, medical marijuana was decided by a vote of 63% of the voters, an overwhelming majority, so pro-marijuana advocates are hopeful for the passage of recreational marijuana.
The new law would allow possession in public of up to 2.5 ounces, and up 10 ounces at home. No marijuana use would be allowed in public. Individual communities get to make the call on whether dispensaries can operate in their township or city.
Driving After Smoking
Currently, it is against the law to drive with any amount of active THC in your system. This holds even if you are not affected by the marijuana. For medical marijuana...
What to Expect from Your Lawyer
July 15, 2018
Hiring a lawyer is a difficult decision. Without much time, you’re forced to a hire a stranger to handle a sensitive and personal matter. Here are some things to look for when hiring a lawyer and if your lawyer is doing a good job.
A good lawyer communicates with clients. Here are a couple of questions to help decide if you’re lawyer is communicating with you. When your attorney sends written communication such as an e-mail, is a one or two sentence e-mail or does it appear the lawyer took time to write the message?
How soon does it take an attorney to respond to your message? It’s true that lawyers are often in court and can’t pick up the phone. But how long does it take for the attorney to call you back?
How difficult is it for you to get a hold of your lawyer? When you call the office does someone pick up or is the phone always going to voicemail.
You should have an expectation that your lawyer...
Avoid Summer DUI Troubles
July 09, 2018
It’s the time of year for the holidays. And holidays mean people will be out and about drinking and being merry. Be careful – cops know you’re out there drinking and are waiting for you.
Most police agencies step up patrol and enforcement around the holidays hoping to make some busts.
Drinking and driving is a crime almost anyone can find themselves in trouble for. Just an extra glass of wine is what separates you from legal trouble.
Here’s some advice from your neighborhood criminal defense lawyer:
Stay Off the Roads!
Knowing there are more cops than usual on the road it’s best to play it safe. Plan your evenings ahead of time. Arrange for a designated driver ahead of time or have an Uber or Lyft at the ready. (Do people take regular taxi cabs anymore?)
Don’t land in a situation where you’ve drank too much and have no way home. The $40 to Uber for the round trip may seem like a lot...
