When You Shouldn't Call 911

A criminal defense lawyer receives a variety of phone calls asking for legal advice. Some are legitimate, some are not.  Courtesy of Simple Justice, watch the video below . The man calls 911 to ask what the punishment would be for growing marijuana. When asked by the 911 operator if the call was life threatening or a crime was in progress, the caller replied "crime in progress". Although marijuana plants are slow growing, the crime could literally be viewed as a 'crime in progress'. Surprisingly, the 911 operator actually answered the question and responded "depends on how big the plant is." Call a defense lawyer, not 911 for legal advice. Robert Michelson will be needing one now. He will likely face charges for misuse of 911 systems as well as other drug charges.
