What is Felony Firearm Possession?
According to Michigan law, it is illegal to possess a firearm during the commission of a felony crime. While people usually understand that robbery, assault, or violent crimes involving a firearm can lead to additional problems, the same can be true in drug crime cases, property crime cases, and almost any other criminal case. Even if the gun has nothing to do with the crime committed, overzealous police and prosecutors may attempt to catch you off guard with the charges and thereby add additional time to your sentence or pressure you to accept a plea bargain. Always speak with a lawyer as soon as you can if you are accused of felony firearm, or if you are accused of another crime and believe you could be at risk of facing felony firearm charges.
Criminal Penalties for Felony Firearm in Detroit
If you are convicted of Detroit felony firearm possession, you could face up to two years of mandatory prison time added onto your sentence. If this is not your first offense, you could face up to five years, or even as much as ten years if you have two prior convictions.
In order to be convicted, the gun does not even have to be on your person. If police raid your home in connection with a drug charge or other criminal charge, and find a firearm inside, you could be convicted of felony firearm charges. Likewise, if you are accused of selling marijuana and have a gun in your car at the time of the alleged action, you could face additional prison time for felony firearm. Never speak to police before you are able to consult with an attorney, as everything you say or do could be twisted and used against you to secure a conviction.
