Oakland County Sex Crime Defense Attorney
Whether you have been charged with a sexual crime or simply think you may be, your situation is serious and requires some serious help from an Oakland County criminal defense attorney who will take an aggressive approach to your case. All of the states now require persons convicted of certain sex crimes to register as sex offenders. This creates victims not only of the offenders who must register, which makes it difficult to find work, or a place to live, but also of their families. Their homes may be subject to harassing drive-bys, and spouses sometimes receive threatening phone calls or anonymous letters. As a result of my years working in the Michigan criminal court system I understand and take a non-judgmental approach with anyone accused of a sex offense.
Sex Offense Defense Lawyer in Oakland County
Criminal sexual conduct which includes victimless sex offenses covers a large number of sex offenses. Approximately 100,000 individuals are convicted each year of sex crimes. These include:
- Rape, date rape and statutory rape
- Public sexual indecency
- CSC 1, 2, 3 and 4 charges
- Sex offender registry violation
- Sexual assault
- Pornography charges
There are no definite statistics available on how many innocent individuals are unfairly convicted of sex offense annually. For example rape, date rape and sexual assault may have no witness of the event other than the accuser and the accused. With some types of sexual offense, testimony alone is accepted as evidence. A large part of the population is quite emotional about certain offenses, including law enforcement personnel, prosecutors, and people who serve on juries. This creates a difficult situation for a defendant and requires a highly skilled CSC sex offense defense attorney to even the playing field.
