  • Six arrested during rally honoring Aiyana Stanely-Jones

    Thursday Jul 21 | via Metro Times 

    Six individuals, who chained themselves to a Detroit Police Department precinct, were arrested Wednesday evening during a rally honoring Aiyana Stanley-Jones, a 7-year old who was shot and killed by Detroit police officer Joseph Weekley during a May 2010 house raid. The protest, coordinated by BYP100 Detroit chapter and Black Lives Matter Detroit, aimed to honor the life of Stanely-Jones - who would have turned 14-years old that day - and also demand the firing of Weekley, who still works for the department and was selected this year to co-chair DPD's Committee on Race and Equality.

    A judge reluctantly dismissed all charges Tuesday, closing a murder case against a young Detroit man who went to prison as a teen for four slayings that were eventually linked to a professional hit man. Davontae Sanford was released from prison in June when Wayne County Judge Brian Sullivan threw out a second-degree murder conviction at the request of the prosecutor.

    Wednesday Jul 20 | via Michigan Radio 

    First came the news that Judge Brian Sullivan was finally dismissing the murder charges against Sanford, more than a month after letting him out of prison. So fundamentally, some very good news for Sanford, who's been deeply frustrated by the "mixed messages" he felt the court was sending about his innocence, and the anxiety he says he constantly felt every time he stepped out of his family's home or saw a police officer.

Detroit Law

Would I still face administrative license sanctions from Michigan SOS if the court case was Nolle Prossed?
3rd OWI a few years back. I received a 2 year delayed sentence (which is technically not lawful, but that's another matter), graduated Sobriety Court, and ALL charges were Nolle Prossed (I verified this from the case ROA). I was able to pass a NICS check just recently for a pistol purchase, so for sure there is no conviction. I pulled my MSP record from iCHAT and it shows nothing about it whatsoever - only the 2nd offense is on there. However, on my driving record it still says I'm not eligible for a license restoration hearing until 5 years after the "conviction" for the 3rd (which doesn't exist). 1. Shouldn't it instead say 5 years from conviction for the 2nd? 2. Seems like maybe the court just failed to notify SOS of the final disposition of NP? 3. How do I fix this and get my driving record corrected so that I can immediately be eligible for a hearing (its been 6 years since conviction for the 2nd)?
Yes, if the OWI 3rd charge was dismissed the court should have sent a notice of the dismissal to the Secretary of State...
How much would a lawyer cost.
My friend got pull over for drinking and driving this is his 4th time.
A lot. I am thinking $ 20,000 or above for a good attorney and he is going to need it.
Should I try to get my license back in Michigan after 2nd OWI?
Thank you for reading my question, I know that answering questions on here doesn't make you any money but here's my question: I'm 21 years old and have 2nd OWI in Michigan and will be able to go to the Drivers License Appeal in February for a hearing (the first hearing). I have 13 months of sobriety but I am still on probation and I can not afford an attorney to speak on my behalf at the hearing. Should I bother trying to get my license back? my P.O said she would write me a letter and I can get letters from AA and my family as well. Thank you.
It is my pleasure to answer your question; I'm happy to do it. I would advise you to NOT attempt to get your license...
Can I get help for having a 3rd and 4th DUI felonies reduced to misdemeanors in hope of regaining my MI Gaming License back?
To clarify from earlier, I was just trying to get to the point of asking if anything could be done after having a 3rd & 4th Felony DUI charge. I know it can be difficult, but, is there anyway with a good DUI attorney of having the felonies reduced to misdemeanors. My family member got their 3rd & 4th within 30 minutes of each other on his way home from having a drink. Their 1st two charges resulted in community service, fines & suspended license for the 1st 72 hrs in jail, community service, fines and lost of license plate the 2nd 5 days in jail , probation, 3rd jail 38 days total, fines, tether, community service, felony charge, lost of gaming license 4th DUI 60 day in jail fines, felony charge, classes, tether, community service & probation.

Can I get help for having a 3rd and 4th DUI felonies reduced to misdemeanors in hope of regaining my MI Gaming License back?
I have a family member who has in the last 6mos received 2 DUI's in the course of one night, which caused him to get a 3rd and 4th DUI all within 30 minutes of each other. This person was on there way home after the 3rd and explained to the officer that he was on route to their house. He was stopped because of the expired paper in his window for having had his plate taken for the second DUI and suspended license as they were on their way home from work. As a result he has lost his gaming license and career. This person has since served 90 days total in jail and a abundance of fees are being paid out. They are now trying to regroup while turning their life around. They are now looking for a good DUI attorney to help get the 3rd &4th DUI reduced too misdemeanors in hopes of regaining their Michigan gaming license back and career, They have received all DUI's in a course of 3 years at the age of 45 with no prior criminal history. They are educated with no prior anything all while living and growing up in the city of Detroit. I would like to see nothing more than for them to get a second chance and their career back.
If fees are already being paid out, and 90 days have been served in jail time, than that would indicate up front to me...
