A Ewing Law Client was charged with Open Murder, Felony Firearms, Assault with Intent to Murder, Felony Firearms, and Carrying a Concealed Weapon. Our client was only 15 years old at the time of the incident–but faced life without parole before the adult court.
We were able to use the evidence to show that the facts and circumstances were not as clear cut as the police believed. As a result, the charges were dismissed, and the client was allowed to have his case handled in the juvenile court–which will monitor his progress in high school and rehabilitative programs so that he can move into his adulthood free from incarceration with his entire life ahead of him.

The felony Home Invasion 1st Degree (20 year prison max) was reduced to Illegal Entry (a misdemeanor), count two (MDOP) was dismissed, and he plead to count three (Domestic Violence).
The plea agreement also stated that the pleas to the two misdemeanors would be made pursuant to MCL 771.1 and 769.4a–meaning they are non-public records so they are sealed so that our client’s employer can not find the records. The agreement also stated that upon successful completion of an anger management program and a short probation–that the two misdemeanor charges would also be dismissed. Leaving our client WITH ALL CHARGES ULTIMATELY DISMISSED!

A Ewing Law Client was charged with various gun charges after police approached him in a parking lot finding a gun in his vehicle. The issue presented to the court was that the police had seized our client, placing him in the back of a locked police car, before having probable cause to do so. Without probable cause, the police had no reason to search the vehicle–and the statement he gave while illegally detained should not have been used against him. Attorney Ewing filed a Motion to Suppress the evidence of the gun, and suppress his illegally obtained statement. Genesee County Circuit Court Judge Joseph J. Farah agreed, suppression was granted–and the case was dismissed.
