Courageous Michigan Attorneys Represent Sex Crime Suspects

Accomplished Detroit law firm defends people facing sexual assault charges

In Michigan, all sex crimes are defined as Criminal Sexual Conduct (CSC), and the law does not discriminate on the basis of gender or protect alleged perpetrators when the crime is committed against a spouse or intimate partner. At Federal Criminal Attorneys of Michigan, we know that all sex crime charges, whether sexual assault, molestation or sexual abuse of a minor, must be taken seriously and fought vigorously. Our Detroit attorneys will aggressively defend your rights and pursue the best possible results, whether that is an acquittal, a reduction of charges or a plea bargain, to preserve your reputation and freedom.

Proven advocates represent those accused of first-degree sexual assault

First-degree sexual assault is unlawful penetration, such as rape, in which any of the following elements is present:

  • The victim was incapacitated or otherwise unable to consent.
  • Force or coercion was involved, with or without the presence of a weapon.
  • The victim was under 13 years old.
  • The victim is 13 to 15 years old, and is a blood relative of the defendant, lives in the defendant’s household, or the defendant holds authority over the victim.

A conviction can result in life imprisonment, but no matter how bleak your legal situation seems, our attorneys will work to find evidence that may reduce the charges or lead to an acquittal. If you’re convicted of a first-degree sex crime, you face being listed on the state’s sex offender registry, which carries serious consequences that limit your freedoms even once you’ve served your sentence. If you’ve been found guilty, we are also skilled at appealing convictions.

Determined lawyers fight second-degree sexual assault charges

Second-degree sexual assault involves sexual contact (without penetration) of the genital area, groin, buttocks, breasts or inner thigh. In addition, any of the elements of a first-degree charge must be present. A conviction can result in 15 years in prison.

Our skilled lawyers are prepared to vigorously defend you before a jury. We are committed to protecting your freedom and reputation.

Skilled defense attorneys represent people accused of third-degree sexual assault

Third-degree sexual assault is sexual penetration that involves any of these elements:

  • The victim was 13 to 15 years old.
  • Force or coercion was used.
  • The victim was incapacitated or otherwise unable to consent.

The legal penalties include 15 years’ imprisonment and sex offender registration. The legal team at Federal Criminal Attorneys of Michigan will challenge the prosecution’s case to identify effective defense strategies based on weak evidence or questionable witness statements.

Dedicated law firm handles fourth-degree sexual assault charges

Fourth-degree sexual assault is a misdemeanor sexual contact charge that involves one of the following:

  • Force or coercion
  • Victim incapacity/inability to consent
  • Victim is an inmate and defendant works for the Department of Corrections

Even though this charge is a misdemeanor, conviction can mean two years in prison. Our defense attorneys will energetically defend your legal rights and reputation and work toward the best possible outcome for you.
