Michigan takes its gun laws very serious and any violation has a risk of carrying severe fines and penalties. MCL 750.234(d) specifically makes it illegal to possess a firearm on certain premises, such as banks, churches, courts, theaters, and hospitals. If convicted of possessing a firearm in one of these areas, you will be faced with a misdemeanor and possibly 90 days in jails with $100.00 in fines.
If you have ever been convicted of a felony it is unlawful to possess a firearm. Pursuant to MCL 750.224(f) you will be facing a 5-year felony and fines up to $5,000.00. It is for this reason that you contact an experienced defense lawyer immediately.
If you have been charged with a gun crime in the Oakland, Wayne or Macomb County communities of Royal Oak, Bloomfield Hills, Detroit, Warren, Troy or any surrounding area and want the best defense, call Michigan Criminal Attorney Barton Morris at (248) 541-2600. Barton Morris was recently voted Top Attorney in Metro Detroit for 2012 and 2013 in the area of criminal defense.
