CPS Process in Michigan Drug Crime Cases
The penalties for drug crimes in Michigan vary greatly, depending on the severity of the crime and if you have children. If you’ve been accused of committing a drug crime, it’s important to hire a CPS defense attorney to help prove your innocence and assist you as you fight for justice. Since the potential consequences range so greatly, it’s crucial that you begin building your case early on. Your attorney will conduct his or her own investigation to ensure all of the facts are straight, protecting you from misinformation that may result in an unjust case result. If you suspect you’re under investigation, contact the Grabel & Associates team right now. It’s never too soon to start fighting back.
If you’ve been accused of a drug crime in Michigan, you may not know that you could also face Child Abuse and Neglect charges. Simply exposing your child to drugs could be enough to warrant an investigation in Michigan. For example, if drug paraphernalia is found in your house, CPS may determine that your children are living in an unsafe environment. Similarly, if you are accused of illegal marijuana use, CPS could investigate whether children are being exposed to smoke.
If you’re a parent accused of any crime, CPS may decide to look into your case and potentially try to take your children away if they believe your drug crime had an impact on your child. An investigation typically consists of a home visit, interviews with the alleged victim and perpetrator, a thorough review of case documents, a doctor’s examination and a final assessment of the family’s strengths and weaknesses. If the CPS worker concludes that the child is currently in danger, he or she may file a petition to have the child removed from the home temporarily. The child will be placed with a family member, friend, or foster family until the court determines what action needs to be taken.
