Criminal Defense Attorney Gets CCW Charges Dismissed

Dana Nessel gets charges against client dismissed.

Last week, in the Romulus district court, criminal defense attorney Dana Nessel won an almost unheard of victory.

 Our client was charged with Possession of a Taser, which is a similar charge to Carrying a Concealed weapon (CCW).  Violation of this statute is a felony, punishable by up to 4 years in prison and up to a $2,000.00 fine.  The client was arrested at Detroit Metro Airport, as she was going through a security checkpoint.  She had forgotten that she was in possession of the taser when she attempted to board the place.  Thankfully the client contacted the criminal defense attorneys at Nessel and Kessel Law. 

Dana Nessel, upon meeting with the attorney for the City of Romulus, was able to convince him that this was simply a case where the client had forgotten that she was in possession of the taser, and had the charges reduced.  However, the charges were not simply reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor.  Dana Nessel was able to have the felony possession charges reduced to a ticket for double parking.  Of course the client was thrilled with the results.

 When a client retains Nessel and Kessel Law we immediately begin to develop a comprehensive strategy for success.  Sometimes success means convincing the prosecutor to dismiss the charges completely, or have them greatly reduced.  Other times it means a motion to suppress evidence to have the case dismissed by a judge, or fully preparing for trial and securing a not guilty verdict.  Each client, case and set of facts are different.  That’s why you need a criminal defense attorney who is prepared to handle any situation that comes across their desk.  Contact Nessel and Kessel Law today so that you can talk to a criminal defense attorney and see what success can mean for you.
