Sex crimes in Michigan are known as Criminal Sexual Conduct (CSC). These crimes include many varied acts of a sexual nature. In numerous instances, the crime might involve unwanted touches or attempted touching, but not every criminal sexual conduct crime requires the alleged victim be physically touched. Notwithstanding of the degree of the charge you are facing, a sex crime allegation can forever change your life. A conviction could even diminish your prospective future relationships and employment opportunities.
Criminal Sexual Conduct is a charge that may result from sexual contact or penetration with a minor; sex acts accomplished using force or coercion, sexual assault, sex acts committed by an authority figure, or other criminal actions. There are four varying degrees of CSC in Michigan, each with a different set of possible criminal penalties.
