Our Answers to Two Important Questions
- Will the charges be more severe if I used a weapon during a robbery?
In general, yes, the charges and related consequences will be more severe if you used a weapon or brandished it in a threatening manner. Michigan also has a “one with gun gets you two” statute that adds two years to your minimum sentence. It is our goal to get your charges reduced or dismissed altogether whenever possible.
- I have been charged with a violent crime. What should I do?
Facing criminal charges can be frightening and frustrating. The first thing you need to do, however, is to ensure that your rights are protected. Getting a skilled criminal defense attorney involved in your case sooner rather than later greatly increases your chances for a successful outcome. The sooner the attorneys at Barberi Law are contacted, the sooner we can begin developing your defense strategy.
