Filing a False Police Report
Filing a False Police Report -- Charge Dismissed
Darryl McMillion retained criminal defense Attorney Carl Jordan to represent him on filing a false police report charge. In July, 2011, the case of State of Michigan vs. Darryl McMillion went to trial. In Michigan, falsely reporting a crime that is a felony can be punished by up to four years in prison and/or $2,000.
Attorney Jordan’s client went to the Livonia police to report that he was carjacked. Instead of being treated like the victim that he was, the police charged him with filing a false police report.
Attorney Jordan successfully argued in Circuit Court that there was nothing to indicate his client was lying. The Court agreed and the case against Attorney Jordan’s client was dismissed.
