Were you accused of committing CSC?

An accusation of any sex crime is frightening to say the least. As even the mere accusation of a sex crime is enough to ruin the individual's reputation, it is necessary to have a strong legal representative on your side if you have come up against such charges. According to Section 750 of the Michigan Penal Code, rape is called criminal sexual conduct “CSC” and can be categorized as first, second, third, or fourth degree. Fourth degree sexual conduct is a misdemeanor and these charges can be brought against those who were accused of engaging in sexual contact with a person between the ages of 13 and 16 when the actor is at least five years older than them. It can also be brought against those who used force in order to perform the sexual contact.

If the accused of convicted of third degree criminal sexual conduct, this is a felony charge and they could be left facing up to 15 years in prison. Those accused of rape with the involvement of a deadly weapon or when the victim was mentally incapacitated will be charged with second degree criminal sexual conduct. If you have been accused of first degree sexual conduct, then it is imperative that you have a strong criminal defense attorney on your side as you could be facing years in prison as well as electronic monitoring for the remainder of your life.
