Information on Kevin McLean’s Brief on Internet Restrictions

On Behalf of | Nov 10, 2017 | Firm News |

Kevin McLean, an Associate with Creighton McLean & Shea, PLC, worked in conjunction with SADO (State Appellate Defender’s Office) while he was a student at the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law. During the Fall 2015 term, Kevin wrote a brief for the Michigan Court of Appeals challenging computer and internet restrictions imposed on a SADO Clinic client as a condition of that client’s probation. The Court of Appeals initially denied leave to appeal, however, the Michigan Supreme Court remanded the case for review by the Court of Appeals.

On July 27, 2017, the Court of Appeals vacated the probation condition that restricted the client from owning, possessing or using a computer or device capable of connecting to the internet, and remanded the case for a hearing to determine whether the internet restrictions were warranted and, if so, for the trial court to tailor those conditions to the individualized rehabilitation needs of the client.

This case is yet another example of the lengths our attorneys at Creighton McLean & Shea, PLC will go to for our clients. Regardless of a client’s individual circumstances, our attorneys will advocate for the full rights of our clients and ensure that they are given the best representation possible.
