If you commit a felony and are in Possession of a Firearm you may be charged with Felony Firearm and face a mandatory 2 years in prison which is served before the crime you are actually sentenced for is served. You need an experienced and aggressive Criminal Defense Attorney to fight for your rights
Under Michigan law, an individual who commits a felony and has possession of a firearm, by law, will be charged with felony firearm. Possession can be both actual or constructive, for instance, you knew where the gun was and could have actually possessed it when you commit a felony. For instance, a defendant who was delivering drugs and had a gun in a car that was parked across the street, was convicted of felony firearm. So you don't even have to have the weapon on your person to get convicted of felony firearm.
If you are convicted of felony firearm, you will be facing a mandatory 2 years in prison and that 2 years will be served even before you start serving the sentence for which you were convicted. And the Judge does not have any discretion to give you probation instead of sending you to jail for two years.
