Criminal Defense Attorney Discusses The Challenges of Criminal Trials During a Pandemic
Dan T. Geherin, criminal defense lawyer in Ann Arbor, advises clients on how their trial over Zoom may affect their case.
By: Geherin Law Group, PLLC.
Every day, Dan takes calls from clients who are anxious and worried about their right to a trial; when they might have a trial; and whether that trial will be fair under the difficult circumstances.
Courts in Washtenaw County and throughout Southeastern Michigan had to reinvent themselves and figure out how to handle busy criminal dockets despite a health pandemic and various governmental shutdowns. Courts couldn't simply cancel criminal dockets and wait 6 months to resolve cases; way too much is at stake for public safety, for crime victims, and for the accused. Most courts have gone to a Zoom system where most criminal appearances are handled remotely.
