Oakland County CSC Defense Attorney
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.
