Charged with a sex crime? Get experienced and aggressive legal help NOW. At State Street Law, our understanding of Michigan law, our close attention to the development and presentation of the facts essential to your defense and our ability to work productively with the prosecutors and the courts can all make an important difference to the favorable resolution of your case.
Contact State Street Law for resourceful defense of sex crime charges ranging from violations of the Sex Offender Registration Act to criminal sexual conduct in the first-degree.
Our attorneys represent clients who need an effective defense on charges such as:
- Aggravated rape and other sex crimes alleged to involve serious bodily harm
- Sexual assault, including attempt to commit sexual battery
- Date rape or acquaintance rape
- Statutory rape, including charges of criminal sexual conduct between consenting teenagers or younger children
- Possession of child pornography
- Online solicitation of sex with a minor
- Failure to register as a sex offender, or other violations of the registration statute
At the State Street Law, our attorneys will make a thorough investigation of the facts so that your strongest possible defense can be presented. We often work with forensic experts in criminal sexual conduct cases, so that technical aspects of your defense can be fully developed. That may involve questions about the alleged victim's consent, the defendant's mental capacity, mistaken identity or even DNA evidence. In certain cases, we can charge the expenses of working with expert witnesses to the state.
If the evidence against you indicates that a defense on the merits will not be promising, our familiarity with the law and the criminal justice system can give you a significant advantage in plea or sentence negotiation.
Michigan's complex criminal sexual conduct statute — especially in combination with the courts' indeterminate sentencing practices — gives both the prosecutor and the judge a high degree of discretion in charging and sentencing sex crime cases. Our experience can help ensure that this discretion can be exercised in your favor.
