Being arraigned on murder charges is obviously a very serious issue. Anyone facing such charges in Michigan or another state is likely to increase the chances of a positive outcome in court by retaining the assistance of an experienced attorney to build a strong criminal defense. Recently, an Uber driver was scheduled for arraignment after being accused with respect to several recent shootings.
The 45-year-old man is suspected in connection with multiple shootings that resulted in several fatalities and injuries. It has not yet been determined whether the man accused of the shootings was working a shift for Uber at the time the alleged acts took place. He was apparently taken into custody without incident on a recent Sunday.
The man in question does not seem to have any prior criminal record. His wife is apparently cooperating with authorities in their investigation. There was a report that an Uber customer had called police earlier in the evening, stating that the man had been his driver and had driven in an erratic manner on route to his destination.
When there are many unknown details related to incidents in Michigan that lead to serious accusations against a person, it is advisable to enlist the aid of an experienced criminal defense attorney so that an investigation of the situation can be conducted. In certain circumstances, an attorney is able to challenge various aspects of specific charges or the process under which an arrest was made. These actions, along with other options that might be available to a defendant may be significant toward obtaining positive results in court.
