The county of Allegan hammers those who are arrested for breaking the law.  Our firm has seen a client get his with five different charges out of one arrest!  We have seen people get jail on a regular basis for felony convictions.  We had one client who almost got jail for a first offense two-year felony charge. This wouldn’t happen in just about any other county in West Michigan.  When our clients are charged with a felony, we have noticed that it takes a long time for a case to finish. The previously mentioned cases are ones that end with a plea. If the case goes to trial or there is a threat of trial, the case will take even longer to finish.

The city of Allegan is a beautiful one. It has a river going through it and we have seen Bald Eagles on our way down there twice! The county gets hit hard during the winter time with more snow and ice than Kent or Barry County. So if you are having to go to court during the winter in Allegan, be prepared for your drive to take longer than you would expect.

The Circuit Court – Family Division are those cases where the Prosecuting Attorney is charged with the responsibility of bringing cases of child neglect or abuse to the court. In, addition, the Prosecuting Attorney handles cases of juvenile delinquency and involuntary mental admissions (in Probate Court). Juvenile delinquency petitions filed in 2003 increased 70 from 1993. These numbers are disturbing, but understandable, given the growth of Allegan County, the breakdown of American family values, and the high incidence of educating the community and reporting. Allegan County has and will continue to take an aggressive approach to the protection of our children. Allegan County has one Family Court/Probate Judge, and two Hearing Referees.

Felony cases in Allegan are crimes in which the punishment can be incarceration of more than one year in prison. These cases require more time than misdemeanor cases.  Felony cases have strict time limits which require preliminary exams and trials to be held within a certain amount of time. Of course, these time limits can be waived usually for good cause and many times these time limits do get waived for good cause.  Allegan County has two Circuit Court Judges who handle all adult felony cases.  Felony caseloads in Allegan County have increased over the past three years. The main reason for this has been Methamphetamine abuse. This abuse is an epidemic and is prevalent in around 35 of all felony cases in Allegan County.
