Larceny/theft comes in at number one and makes up greater than half of all reported crimes in America. Each year, more than seven million cases of larceny/theft are reported.


There are approximately two million cases of burglary reported annually. Burglary differs from larceny/theft in that it involves forcible entry before the theft is made. This is commonly the charge leveled against home intruders.

Auto Theft

Over a million Americans have their car stolen every year. The court system takes this crime very seriously and in the state of Michigan you could face felonious charges that bring up to five years behind bars.

Aggravated Assault

In Michigan, aggravated assault commonly brings a misdemeanor charge. But even as a misdemeanor the punishment can still land you in prison for a year, while also requiring you to pay significant fines.


Typically, robbery involves a theft where the victim experiences bodily harm (or the threat thereof). Michigan courts take this particularly seriously, and may sentence the guilty party to up to fifteen years in prison.
