Breaking and Entering Cases Dismissed

Detroit defense attorney Chris Kessel turns 8 convictions into 4 with HYTA. 

Several weeks ago a client came to Nessel and Kessel Law with EIGHT cases involving Breaking and Entering, Larceny from a Building, and Felony Firearm.  It became immediately apparant that all 8 cases stemmed from the actions of one night.  Unfortunately, because of the Felony Firearm charge the client was looking at a minimum of 2 years in prison.   

However, despite the extremely difficult position the client was in, the attorneys at Nessel and Kessel Law were able to convince the prosecutor to agree to dismiss 4 of the 8 cases as part of a plea deal.  Detroit defense attorney,  Chris Kessel, was also able to convince a judge at the Third Circuit Court to allow the client to be sentenced under the Holmes Youthful Trainee Act, meaing that once the client completes his probation, he will have no criminal record.  HYTA is never an automatic, but can only be given at the discretion of the judge.
