In Watervilet Township, Michigan a 24 year old father has recently been arrested on the charges of murdering his little ten month old baby. According to the reports of the county sheriff’s department, they received a call stating that the little child wasn’t breathing. The ambulance arrived and a helicopter lifted the baby to the local hospital for treatment. The baby was pronounced dead at the hospital. The baby’s autopsy reports still haven’t been released, so the true cause of death is still unknown even though the accusations have been currently placed on the father.
While this trial process is pending, the father has currently pleaded not guilty to the accusation of first degree murder, and he waits in jail with a bail for $1 million dollars. His next hearing, a preliminary examination, will be held next week. Facing accusations for murder is a big pill to swallow, being accused of murdering your own child is a completely different level. No person should be forced to walk through criminal charges alone without the help of an experienced criminal defense attorney. When a person is accused of a violent crime in the state of Michigan, though the death penalty is no longer a legal punishment, there can still be the likelihood of many years of prison time if not life.
Each criminal case is unique, and the court will evaluate all of the details involved when determining the sentencing. Why face this alone though, contact Daniel D.
