Charges dropped in Michigan armed robbery for lack of evidence

As most of our readers know, in Michigan prosecutors have to prove a defendant’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

Registration on the state sex offender list may also be at stake, based on what level of sex crime you are charged with.
