If you are arrested in the City of Livonia for a misdemeanor, your case will be litigated in the 16th Judicial District before Judge Kathleen McCann or Judge Sean Kavanagh. Both Judges are reasonable and fair when it comes to sentencing. Both are very careful to rule for the defense on pre-trial motions, like many judges.
Most prosecutions are by the Livonia City Attorneys Barbara Scheer and Donald Knapp. I like both of them. I have had successful professional dealings with both of them over the years including several favorable DUI plea negotiations, usually right before trial. This Court recently started a sobriety court for repeat drunk driving offenders which can help defendants keep their driver’s license.
