Kent County Felony Heroin Possession Case Dismissed

Charge: Possession of Heroin
Court: Kent County

Client was charged with Possession of Heroin, pursuant to Michigan Compiled Laws 333.7403, a 4-year Felony. In addition, he was charged with 2nd or Subsequent offense, which doubles it to an 8-year possible sentence, and as a Habitual Offender, which allows for one and one-half times the maximum sentence. Through the Discovery process and negotiations, we were able to Dismiss the Felony, the 2nd offense, and the habitual and plea to a Misdemeanor Use of Controlled Substance and a sentence of time served.

In addition, due to the relationships Mr. Boyle and the Barone Defense Firm have developed with Grand Rapids area treatment centers, we were able to get client into a treatment center at no addition expense to client or client's family.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
Patrick Barone is the ONLY choice for DUI defense. He was realistic from the start and made it a point to look at my case before taking my money. As a business owner, when I think of attorneys, I think of the "shark infested waters. Patrick is a shark alright, but his prey is not the client; it's justice for his client. Ten stars Patrick!!

Attorney Patrick Barone was very helpful and helped me understand the charge and sentence absolutely clearly. He also guided me through step by step helping me form a statement. His instructions were clear and detailed. It was obvious he cared about me understanding every important detail within my case. I would absolutely recommend this defense firm to anyone in need.

The Barone Defense Firm is the firm I recommend. They are truly concerned about the person, not just the legal issue, but the person as well. They are the most knowledgeable defense firm that I am aware of, having actually written the book on DWI Defense. If you are faced with a DWI you will not find a more professional and skilled law firm. But, most importantly, they care about how the accused individual recovers his or her life when the case is complete. Very remarkable group of lawyers. William H.
