Breathalyzer use suspended due to alleged white collar crimes

Over 200 Breathalyzers were removed from service while the Michigan State Police investigates allegations of fraud and forgery. One of the three vendors who service the state's Breathalyzers is suspected of committing white collar crimes. It is not yet clear how this would affect drivers who were charged with drunk driving after being tested by machines that may not have been calibrated.

Bank teller pleads guilty to white collar crimes charges

A former employee of Michigan First Credit Union recently entered a guilty plea to embezzlement charges that were filed against her in December. Reportedly, Michigan First Credit Union investigated irregularities reported by the family of a 92-year-old client of the bank. During a meeting with her employers, the 52-year-old teller admitted to stealing funds from a vulnerable adult. She worked for the bank for 13 years, but her employment was terminated after she confessed to committing white collar crimes.

Facing tax evasion charges

Tax evasion is one of the most consequential white collar criminal charges a person may face. Many people worry that they may never recover if they find themselves under investigation for tax fraud, which is certainly a reasonable fear without a strong legal defense. However, many tax charges result from inaccurate interpretations of tax compliance. If you face tax evasion charges, now is the time to begin building your defense.

Post-conviction matters often question bite mark comparisons

While DNA testing has proved to be precise in identifications, other types of forensic evidence have been determined to be unreliable. Many post-conviction matters that ultimately led to exonerations in Michigan and elsewhere included evidence that was based on bite mark comparisons. Yet, in a significant number of cases, prosecutors continue to present bite mark comparisons as crucial evidence.

Post-conviction matters: The tragedies of wrongful convictions

Whenever someone is wrongfully convicted in Michigan, the real perpetrator often continues to threaten society. For those who have been convicted of a crime they did not commit, an attorney who has experience in dealing with post-conviction matters and DNA evidence may be helpful. Wrongful convictions are tragedies that devastate the individual convicted in error and his or her family and loved ones.
