Home » General » I have a Possession of Marijuana and MIP case in Saginaw Michigan and Need An Attorney For Next Week!

I need an attorney for criminal charged for MIP minor in possession of alcohol and possession of marijuana.  I am 20 ys old and was out with some friends and got caught with a little marijuana like abt 1/8 of weed and was drinking.  I was charged with MIP and possession marijuana and have court next week in the Saginaw District Court.   I was wondering first if this can be kept off my record and what are the penalties like fines or probation or court costs or jail I guess even. I heard from my friends who live there that Judge is tough and I cant afford to have anything on my record because I am transfering to another college next year and I know colleges run your criminal record.  They also told me not to hire a attorney from in Saginaw because they suck and work more for the court then they do for you and attorneys from the city get better deals.  I was hoping lawyers from your law firm handle MIP and marijuana cases in Saginaw and want to know what I can expect up there and help keep this off my record if possible.  I had an MIP when I was 16 but I think it shouldnt show up on my record anymore but IDK.

    Thank you for your question to the Michigan criminal defense attorneys at http://www.AllLegalMatters.com. The attorneys at Canu Torrice Law practice in all courts throughout the State of Michigan, and I actually was just in the 70th Judicial District Court on a case in Saginaw, Michigan a few weeks ago on a case with similar criminal charges for MIP and Possession of Marijuana where we were able to achieve a fantastic result for my client.

    As you may know the charge of Minor in Possession of Alcohol (or MIP as it’s commonly called) and Possession of Marijuana in Saginaw, Michigan or anywhere else in the State of Michigan are both misdemeanor crimes, and they both carry with them some vey serious sanctions and penalties, including the possibility of driver’s license sanctions on your Michigan driver’s license, and in the case of marijuana possession a mandatory driver’s license suspension for 6 months and the possibility of up to 1 year in jail. The odd nature of these charges is that regardless of whether or not you were driving when you were arrested for MIP or Possession of Marijuana, and even if you were no where near your car, these convictions are still required to be abstracted to your Michigan driver’s license and your master driving record with Secretary of State.

    This law firm has had great success before the Saginaw District Court Judges, like we do in every court in Michigan, because we provide the best legal representation possible and prepare our clients for every aspect of the case. In the case I most recently concluded in Saginaw Michigan, my client violated his bond by continuing to use marjuana even though he knew the court was going to test him, and because of our advocacy we were able to present a complelling case on his behalf, and he walked away from Court with no jail, no convictions on his record, minumum fines, and he does not even have reporting probationv- which was fortunate for him because he attends school at Central Michigan University and the drive from CMU to Saginaw for probation on an MIP and Possession of Marijuana case would be extremely inconvenient, if not impossible, with his class schedule.

    Contact Canu Torrice Law immediately for a free consultation. Your prior MIP may prevent a complication in your case, but it should not be a major obstacle for our attorneys to overcome in attempting to keep these charges off your criminal record and saving your driver’s license from any suspensions.
