I came across a disturbing report that was released by the United States Department of Justice. The DOJ's report shines light on a serious issue that police departments across the country must address. The report found that 84 percent of police officers surveyed by the Department of Justice claimed to have seen colleagues use excessive force on civilians. Just as disturbing, 61 percent reported they don't always report "even serious criminal violations that involve abuse of authority by fellow officers."

We can conclude that police brutality is a problem. So how do we solve police brutality? While we can never totally eliminate it, a study out of California provides us with evidence that can help reduce police brutality. The report found that police officers who were required to wear cameras that always recorded their interactions with citizens caused "public complaints against officers to plunge 88% compared to the previous 12 months. Officers' use of force fell by 60%.

Knowing their actions were being recorded, officers acted differently than when their actions were not being recorded.

It is time for all counties and police agencies in Michigan to have body cams on them that record all their actions with the public. It reduces violence and protects good officers from false allegations of abuse.

You should know what your Miranda Rights are! I have had many clients that have slit their own throats (in the legal sense) by confessing to a crime. A confession can makes it harder for your defense attorney to win your case or get you the best results possible!

“You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided for you. Do you understand the rights I have just read to you? With these rights in mind, do you wish to speak to me?”

If you are under arrest, an officer must read your Miranda rights to you if he is going to interrogate you! If public safety is at risk, the officer does not have to read you your Miranda Rights and that evidence can be used against you.

A good informative website that deals with Miranda Rights can be found here.

The person arrested must answer questions about their age, address and name. A police officer can search someone under arrest to make sure the arresting officer is safe. Any confession made before Miranda Rights are read will probably make it way into court.

If you have been read your Miranda Rights and then waive those rights, a person under arrest can still change their mind during the interrogation and remain silent. This is called pleading the fifth.

If you have any questions relating to your Miranda Rights, call me today at 616-438-6719! The call is free. Will you be?

If you are facing criminal charges, the first stop in your case is called an arraignment. At your arraignment, you will be told what charges you are facing. For example, “Retail Fraud in the third degree.” You will also be told what the maximum penalties are. For example, “Retail Fraud is punishable by up to 93 days in jail.”

I have been told many time by clients or people who call me up for a free consultation at 616-438-6719, that they want to plea guilty at their arraignment. Some of these people tell me that they did the crime and want to take responsibility for their actions. If the crime is a misdemeanor, I also hear a lot that people say they just want to get the process over with.

Let me be blunt: DO NOT PLEA GUILTY AT YOUR ARRAIGNMENT! Call me first at 616-438-6719 and I will talk to you about case and why you should not plea guilty at your arraignment. The call is free!

Guns and alcohol don’t mix! Putting these two things together is asking for trouble. If you are in possession of guns and under the influence of alcohol or another controlled substance, there are heavy penalties to pay. Serious prison time awaits anyone who injuries or kills another person because you were under the influence of alcohol while using a gun.

Elements of the Offense
MCL 750.237 prohibits a person from possessing, using in any manner, having under control, or discharging guns under any of the following circumstances:
Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) of .08 grams or more
Under the influence of alcohol, controlled substance, or combination thereof
Use of alcohol, controlled substance, or combination thereof impairs the ability to use a firearm
Penalties

A person found guilty of possessing, or discharging a firearm while under the influence of alcohol is guilty of a misdemeanor punishable by up to 93 days in jail and a fine up to $100 for being in possession and a fine up to $500 for using or discharging. It is a felony to injury or kill someone while under the influence of alcohol while possessing a gun.  If the discharge of the firearm causes serious impairment of a bodily function (serious injury) it is punishable by up to five years in prison and/or a fine from $1,000-5,000 plus costs. If the discharge caused the death of another person, it is punishable by up to 15 years in prison and a fine from $2,500-10,000 plus costs.
If a police officer has probable cause to believe you are possessing a gun under the influence of alcohol or another controlled substance, the officer can require you to take a chemical test.
Before submitting to a chemical test the police officer must inform a suspect of the following:
If the suspect refuses to submit, the officer can request a warrant from a judge or magistrate
If the suspect submits, they may seek a second chemical test of their own choosing
Michigan has various laws against pointing a firearm at another person and discharging a firearm. Depending on various factors, they range from a low level misdemeanor to a serious felony.

More Kalamazoo Success for The Criminal Defense Law Center of West Michigan!  Our client was facing a one year misdemeanor charge.  Our client was nervous and wanted to avoid jail and a suspension of their driver's license. When things are all said and done, our client will have no criminal record!  We were able to get the one year misdemeanor charge dropped to a 93 day misdemeanor!  The 93 day misdemeanor will be eventually dropped if our client completes just six months of probation!  More Kalamazoo Success stories like the one mentioned above is what we always strive for at The Criminal Defense Law Center of West Michigan.

We have a proven track record of fighting hard for our clients in all West Michigan counties such as Ottawa, Newaygo, Kent and Allegan.  More Kalamazoo Success stories should be coming to this blog in the future!  Just remember, we have gotten great results in courts all around West Michigan.  The Criminal Defense Law Center of West Michigan won't rest until you get the best result possible!

I’m moving on up!  I’m moving on up Avvo.com that is!  I reached the prestigious 9/10 rating the other day!  This rates me as “Superb.”  I am humbled by this rating and deeply thankful to God for all the blessings I have received in my life. The meaning of this rating goes beyond the number itself. It represents my clients and colleagues who have “graded” me as an attorney. It is my reputation, which means more to me than any number.

I formed The Criminal Defense Law Center of West Michigan because I wanted to provide my clients with honest, dependable and respectful criminal defense.  Customer service is one of my highest priorities as an attorney! I am dedicated to making sure my clients receive top notch customer service! I am stunned at how often I hear complaints from people who call me about the poor customer service they are receiving from their criminal defense lawyer.  This won’t happen if you hire me or anyone who works with The Criminal Defense Law Center of West Michigan.

Recently, I heard that a local public defenders office in town refused to talk with the family members of one of their clients. Their honest answer was that they were too busy to talk to family members about the case. This will never happen at The Criminal Defense Law Center of West Michigan.  Why risk this kind of poor customers service from a public defender’s office?

If you are facing criminal charges in any West Michigan court, call us today at 616-438-6719.

The Criminal Defense Law Center of West Michigan loves getting 48th Circuit Court Results! Our most resent 48th Circuit Court Results involved a client of ours facing Larceny in a Building charges. This was a serious felony charge with our client facing up to four years in prison. We worked hard on this case and got the serious four year felony dropped. Our client entered a guilty plea to a lesser charged under 7411! This means our client will not have a criminal record if our client is able to complete probation successfully!

It can be tough to get 48th Circuit Court Results! Judge Cronin is a harsh when it comes sentencing those guilty of felony crimes before him. Ninety-eight percent of the time Judge Cronin hands out at least jail sentences on felony cases before him. In the case being discussed in this blog post, our client got no jail time! Our client loved the 48th Circuit Court Results we got!

If you or anyone else you know is facing felony charges at the 48th Circuit Court in Allegan County, please contact The Criminal Defense Law Center of West Michigan today at 616-438-6719! The call is free! Will you be?

61st District Court Results!

We love getting our clients 61st District Court Results! We had a client facing domestic violence charges and the prosecutor refused to drop the domestic violence charges against our client. So, we did what we had to do and took the case to trial.

Domestic violence charges are often issued simply on the statement of the victim. Many times, there are no witnesses to the crime other than the victim and the defendant. To put it another way, it is a he said, she said case. People are often surprised when we tell them that all that is needed to convicted them of a crime like domestic violence is the word of the victim. If the jury believes the word of the victim, the defendant will be convicted. You don’t have to have evidence of an injury to be convicted of domestic violence. This puts people charged with domestic violence in a tough spot. Do they take a diversion program even if they know they are innocent?

We knew we had to fight for our client if we were going to get him 61st District Court Results! How sweet it was when we heard the words, “Not Guilty!” Our client was thrilled and we are extremely happy for him.

If you want 61st District Court Results, contact us today at 616-438-6719! The call is free!

A firearm is a dangerous weapon that can end the life of a human being or seriously injury another human being. Firearms charges are taken very seriously by all local prosecutors. If you are facing any type of firearms charges, you need an aggressive criminal defense lawyer by your side asap! You need to call The Criminal Defense Law Center of West Michigan immediately if you are arrested on firearms charges!

It is illegal for a person to intentionally point a firearm at a human being. A person who points a firearm at another human being is guilty of a misdemeanor punishable by up to 93 days in jail and/or a fine up to $500 plus costs.

A person that discharges a firearm while it is intentionally aimed at a human being, but not not injure the human being is guilty of a misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in jail and/or a fine up to $500 plus costs. This statute does not apply to a police officer on duty.

It is a felony to discharge a firearm from any type of motor vehicle. The severity of the penalties for this felony charge depends on how injured the person is that had the gun pointed at them.

If the safety of a person is endangered, the maximum punishment is 10 years in prison and/or a fine up to $10,000 plus costs. It the firearm was shot and a person suffered a physical injury the person who fired the gun is facing up to 15 years in prison and/or a fine up to $15,000 plus costs. If the gun shot causes a serious impairment of a bodily function, the crime can be punished by up to 20 years in prison and/or a fine up to $25,000 plus costs. If the discharge causes the death of human being, it is punishable by up to life in prison or any term of years.

Consecutive sentencing may apply if the defendant is convicted of any other charges from the same incident. If applied, the defendant will always end up serving more time.

I was proud of the Grandville results I got a client of mine a few days back. My client was facing an OWI second offense and a felony charge.  I was able to get the OWI second offense dropped to a lesser charge and I was also able to get the felony charge dropped!

Shawn was an amazing attorney! From the very first consult to the end Shawn was professional, knowlagable, and so friendly. I talked to many different attorneys when I began my search for hire and Shawn outshined the rest with his personable and dedicated demeanor. He made me feel at ease with the legal process and got the end result I wanted. Highly recommended!

"Shawn Haff was very polite whenever we spoke, and he never once judged me based on my charges. Shawn was always on time looked presentable and worked great Magic for my case. By the time we were done at sentencing the judge throw out my paperwork for a 45 day sentence and I walked with 90 hours community service and 5 years probation when I was facing 2, 5 year felonies to begin with. I felt Shawn had a great relationship with the judges we seen, he even went to every court hearing with me from arraignment to sentencing. It was a huge benefit to have him show up at my arraignments because 1st felony was a rare 100$ bond and 2nd arraignment they granted me a p.r bond. I recommend Shawn to all my friends ... he was very helpful and walked us through every step of the way. My outcome was great !!! 10 stars for this lawyer :)!!!"

I was facing a felony charge of parental kidnapping! Shawn told me he would file a motion to dismiss the criminal charges. Shawn kept his word and the prosecutor dismissed the charges the day of the hearing.

I've had the privilege of working with Shawn for several years with his criminal defense legal practice in West Michigan. Shawn is a tremendously competent criminal defense attorney representing hundreds of clients throughout all of Western Michigan. I admire him for his honesty, ethics and a high level of personal integrity. But most of all, I especially appreciate his concern for protecting average citizens from zealous prosecutors and sloppy law enforcement investigators. When people get caught up in our scary, heavy-handed legal system, you need somebody like Shawn Haff that you know is going to defend you, and really cares as much as I know Shawn does.

Society will have you believe that lawyers are sharks and will try to trick you at every corner if you aren't careful. Mr. Haff defied every stereo type possible. He was kind and understanding and was willing to work with me--something I did not find in the nine other lawyers I contacted. I was hesitant to obtain legal council because I thought I could not afford it, and wasn't sure there was anything a lawyer could do for me. If you are on the fence about hiring or obtaining a lawyer, then you really do need one. Having a lawyer means you aren't fighting for yourself on your own. It means there is someone who will be sitting next to you at court, and someone who you can ask all of the middle of the night questions that pop into your head. Family is great. But there is no substitute for someone who has gone to law school and knows the ins and outs of the system and can tell you what to expect. If you are in the Grand Rapids area and have been charged with a crime, you need a criminal defense attorney, and I highly recommend you consult with Mr. Haff before hiring anyone else. With Mr. Haff you will get an experienced, down to earth man, who will look out for your best interest. He is very professional, but personable, and isn't someone who will show up to court with sucker in his mouth. Mr. Haff has assisted me at every stop in the road, and hasn't stopped looking out for me. Like you are, I read all of these reviews before calling Mr. Haff. I wasn't sure that I would have the same great experience that others had, and to be honest I thought they were inflated, but please listen to me when I say, every word of this is true. Do yourself a favor and call or email him. You don't have anything to loose by doing so, but you might have a lot to gain. I wish you all the luck on whatever your situation is and hope this has helped you.
