Few wrongful accusations can be as difficult to navigate such as criminal sexual conduct or rape. An allegation of criminal sexual conduct in the third degree is one of the most serious charges a person can face in anywhere Macomb County, Oakland County, Wayne County, St. Clair County or anywhere in Michigan. It poses up to a maximum possible sentence of 15 years in the state prison, lifetime electronic monitoring, as well as many years or decades of registration on Michigan's Sex Offender Registry (SORA).
It is important to note that in the charging stage, this is an allegation, not a proven fact. Yet you or your loved one's life literally hangs in the balance.
