My question involves criminal law for the state of: Michigan I've made the size bigger and bold letters for those who may have vision problems
My friend is being charged with ADW and Discharging In A Building and if convicted of one possibly Felony Firearm. Here is what was said went on his babies mother and him had a fight yelling and grabbing both of them. He has a CCW and can carry legally. It was said he was drinking but he says he was not, as well as that he had choked her, and pointed the gun to her head a few times. The police where called and after that the gun went off then it was said he chased her doing the same into his 5 year old daughters room choking and pointing at her. Now he says he didn't chase her into his daughters room and when the gun went off its because she had grabbed it in his holster, and he yanked it out to remove it from the room, but it fired behind him when he pulled it out. He says he then walked to the living room and put it down and went back into the room to talk to her trying to tell her it was no need for the police to come. She just stood there so he went to the front picked his gun up and put it on his bed in the room which she sat in. Then went to the front door and waited on the police to arrive.
She said she told the police she did not want to press charges, and she just wanted him to calm down. They forced her to write a statement and sign it. Later the prosecutor had mailed her telling her they was his lawyers, and they was sending her a packet to try and get the charges dropped. Come to find out they where not his lawyers. They went to pretrial, and she again told them that she didn't want him to go to jail or to press charges they told her well its not up to her. The discharging in a building was because they where in a apartment he has a court appointed B lvl lawyer and his case is C Lvl. So he's looking for as much help as he can get as well as his babies momma to try and help him. He doesn't want a felony or to loose his gun rights because he is always getting robbed and has been jumped 3 times once almost loosing his life. What are some things he can do? Thank You Kenny
