Attorney Shawn James Haff of The Criminal Defense Law Center of West Michigan has been asked by his clients before, “Am I going to Prison?”  This is a complicated question to answer that requires the attorney to know a lot of information that might not be available at the moment the question is asked.

The factors an attorney must consider are things such as:

  1. What is the nature of the crime?
  2. Was someone injured?
  3. Does the person have a prior criminal record?
  4. What county did the crime take place in?
  5. What judge will you have?

A person who is convicted of a very serious felony like Criminal Sexual Conduct in the 1st degree is most certainly going to prison.  If you are convicted of a felony drunk driving charge you are probably only facing jail time. If your crime was embezzlement, and it was a low amount of money, you may only get probation.

A person who has been convicted of a felony crime in West Michigan, needs to have an experienced criminal defense attorney like Shawn Haff to guide them down the path that needs to be taken in order to reduce the chance of going to prison.   Shawn knows how to get results and can be contracted right now at 616-438-6719.
