Weapon crimes in Michigan are vigorously pursued and gun convictions can result in substantial fines, time in custody and restrictions on a client’s rights to possess and carry a firearm. Therefore, when a client was charged with reckless use of a firearm when a gun accidentally discharged and there was a resulting injury, Lansing firearm attorney Tiffany DeBruin knew the importance of mitigating any harm this misdemeanor could have on her client’s life and future. If convicted, this client could potentially be sentenced to a year behind bars, but by aggressively negotiating with the prosecution and arguing the facts, she successfully obtained a drastic reduction to a civil infraction.
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.
