Malicious use of a Telephone – Montcalm County: Our client was charged after he left a telephone message for his ex-wife. The message was alleged to contain vulgar words as well as harassing, and threatening statements. Attorney Keeley D. Blanchard conducted a jury trial where she was able to successfully argue that while our client’s message may not have been polite, it wasn’t criminal. After deliberations, the jury returned a verdict of NOT GUILTY.
