Michigan law describes sexual assault as “unwanted sexual contact.” This can take on many different forms, including rape, child sexual abuse, incest and other criminal sexual situations. It is important to know that regardless of the type of sex crime charge you are facing, your freedom and future are at stake
One of the most impactful consequences is the requirement to register as a sex offender. Certain sex crimes require this as part of the sentencing, and it can impact your entire future. Registration as a sex offender can prevent you from gaining housing, employment and other opportunities.
