Michigan Criminal Law: Sex Crimes;
Criminal sexual conduct charges are some of the most serious and challenging cases in the criminal justice system. Michigan’s Sex Offender Registration Act (“SORA”) has a series of strict post-adjudication requirements for individuals convicted for many of these types of charges, in addition to any possible term of probation or parole. Even for lower severity charges, these allegations carry significant consequences for all of the parties involved.

Anyone charged, of course, is presumed innocent. The prosecutor would need to prove the elements of the offense beyond a reasonable doubt if the matter proceeded to trial. Simply because a person is charged does not mean that they will be convicted.
If you need specific legal advice for your particular circumstances, we encourage you to privately consult with a lawyer. Circumstances may vary significantly.
If you are charged with an offense and cannot afford to pay for your own defense, the court may appoint you an attorney payable at the public’s expense. You have a right to counsel.
