Clinton Township, Harrison Township, Mt. Clemens and the 41-B District Court

Michigan has 83 counties, and each county has one or more judicial district courts. The number of district courts in each county depends upon the size of the population. In Macomb County, there are 9 district courts. In Oakland County, there are 14 district courts.

The 41B District Court has jurisdiction over civil and criminal cases that arise in Clinton Township, Harrison Township and Mt. Clemens. These communities are mostly residential with approximately 60,000 households and a combined population greater than 140,000 residents. ABDO LAW firm is located in the heart of Clinton Township, and we call the 41B District Court our “Home Court”.

  • Clinton Township is ranked as the seventh largest community in Michigan with a population estimated at 100,000.

Clinton Township is also home to Macomb County Community College which has an enrollment of approximately 25,000 students. Our top picks for restaurants located in Clinton Township are Cooper’s Hawk, Luciano’s and The Brewery.

Criminal Case Process in the 41B District Court

A crime is an offense which carries the possibility of jail. A civil infraction, such as a speeding ticket, is not criminal and does not carry any jail time. In Michigan, crimes are classified as misdemeanors (which carry a maximum of 1 year in jail or less) or felonies (which carry more than 1 year, up to life, imprisonment). A criminal case is instituted in the 41B District Court by:

  • Issuance of a criminal citation or ticket (retail fraud, disorderly conduct, leaving scene of accident, reckless driving).
  • Commission of a crime resulting in an arrest (drunk driving).
  • Notification by mail to appear in court for an outstanding warrant.

Contact an experience criminal defense lawyer if you are the subject of a criminal investigation or if you are notified to appear for an arraignment. You have a right to remain silent so don’t agree to a police interview or take a polygraph without consulting with a lawyer. By talking to the police, you can easily incriminate yourself by placing yourself at the crime scene or establishing anger towards the victim.

Drunk Driving or Driving Under the Influence of Drugs

Drunk driving encompasses driving under the influence or while impaired due to the consumption of alcohol or any presence of a schedule 1 controlled substance (heroin, marijuana). You can also be charged with driving under the influence if the use of a prescribed medication (e.g., medications used for pain, sleep, or psychological issues) caused impairment.

According to the Michigan State Police Statistics, in 2022 there were 1,890 individuals tested for drugs or alcohol in Macomb County and 3,619 tested in Oakland County. Most of those tested were charged with driving under the influence. In Clinton Township and surrounding areas (Sterling Heights, Shelby Township), police agencies administered hundreds of breath and blood tests to determine intoxication or impairment due to the consumption of alcohol or drugs. The charge for drunk driving applies to individuals that register a blood alcohol content (BAC) over the legal limit:

  • OWI (operating a vehicle with a BAC of .08 or greater)
  • OWI with a high BAC (operating a vehicle with a BAC of .17 or greater)
Shoplifting: Retail Fraud

Retail fraud, formerly known as shoplifting, is on the rise everywhere in the United States. Retail fraud is also of the most prevalent cases that we handle in every district court in Macomb County. Retail fraud can occur by concealing an item while shopping, changing a price tag or by attempting to defeat payment for an item at the point of purchase or scanner. The penalty for retail fraud is dependent upon two factors: the dollar value of the goods stolen and the prior shoplifting record of the offender.

  • Retail Fraud 1st Degree: Felony, maximum penalty of 5 years in prison if the value of goods taken is $1,000.00 or more.
  • Retail Fraud 2nd Degree: Misdemeanor, maximum penalty of 1 year in jail if the value of goods taken is $200.00 to $1,000.00.
  • Retail Fraud 3rd Degree: Misdemeanor, maximum penalty of 93 days in jail if the value of goods taken is under $200.00.

Fortunately, most retail fraud cases can be dismissed with no jail for first time offenders.
