Fighting Criminal Sexual Conduct Charges in Michigan

Handcuffed - Michigan Criminal Sexual Conduct Lawyer

Criminal Sexual Conduct (CSC) charges in Michigan are often more serious than homicide. Split into 4 “degrees,” Michigan’s Criminal Sexual Conduct laws include penalties as harsh as life in prison without the possibility of parole. If you are convicted of Criminal Sexual Conduct, the likelihood of going to prison is very high. Other consequences include having to register as a sex offender, lifetime GPS tether, HIV/STD testing, and more.

Even for the innocent accused, a CSC charge is the fight of your life. Not every Michigan criminal sexual conduct lawyer has the skills, courage, and attention to detail to carry you through an experience like a CSC charge.
