Criminal defense: Woman accused of smoking pot before fatal crash

Michigan residents in Lansing County may be interested in a case in another county that involves a 40-year-old woman who faces 15 years behind bars following a crash last December in which her mother was killed. The woman is accused of being impaired at the time of the accident because she had smoked marijuana 10 hours earlier. Her criminal defense team claims there is no reliable method yet to determine marijuana impairment.

Dealing with divorce without losing one's job

In the middle of personal tragedies, sometimes the hardest thing to deal with is that life goes on. While going through a divorce, there are still bills to pay, dishes to wash and laundry to fold. The grass will continue to go and the boss will expect employees to show up -- even those going through marital troubles. Michigan couples may struggle with this and wonder how best to behave at the office when things at home are falling apart.

Michigan child custody laws moving to equal parenting

Some Michigan parents are eagerly anticipating the upcoming vote on a new bill designed to level the field for divorcing parents. Currently, family law courts are bound to 45-year-old statute requiring parents to battle for shares of child custody. The bill is slated for vote sometime this fall, and if it passes, courts will be encouraged to presume equal custody for both parents whenever possible.

Can You Be Charged With A DUI In Your Own Driveway?

There are often odd or unusual DUI cases where a challenge is made to the validity of criminal DUI charges - if you are on a lawnmower, bicycle, if you aren't actually driving (but have the keys) - and most recently whether a person could be charged when they are on their own driveway.

Cause of death may trigger disputes over wills and trusts

The mysterious and suspicious circumstances under which a man in another state died are at the heart of a family battle over the man's estate. The man's four daughters expected to inherit his $29 million estate after he was shot three times in his bed in Dec. 2013. Apparently, the man's grandson had been disputing the estate plan of the elderly man the night before the murder. While no charges have yet been filed, Michigan residents may be interested in how the case affects the wills and trusts in their own families.
