Common Sex Crimes in Oakland County

There are several offenses that are considered “sex crimes” in Michigan, including:

  • Rape

Penalties for Sex Crimes

If convicted for a sex crime, an individual could spend anywhere from months to years in prison and be required to pay a substantial fine. The exact punishment will depend on the nature and severity of the offense.

In Michigan, criminal sexual conduct is categorized into four degrees, all of which have their own maximum penalties including:

  • First-degree felony – up to life in prison and lifetime sex offender registration

  • Second-degree felony – a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison and lifetime monitoring

  • Third-degree felony – a maximum jail sentence of 15 years and sex offender registration

  • Fourth-degree misdemeanor – up to two years in prison, a maximum fine of $500, and sex offender registration

Our criminal defense attorneys at Bloomfield Law Group can help you formulate a strategic case to avoid these severe penalties. Since a conviction can often be made without any physical evidence, it is imperative that you have a skilled legal team who knows how to defend against these serious charges.

Sex Offender Registration

In Michigan, any person convicted of a sex crime, no matter the degree, is required to register on the Michigan Public Sex Offender Registry (PSOR) for a minimum of 25 years. Whether or not an individual will need to register for life is dependent on the nature of the offense.

Once your name is on the PSOR, information regarding your offense will be viewable by employers, schools, private individuals, and more. This can impact your life in several ways. You might experience difficulty with getting hired, qualifying for a loan, or attending a particular school. There would also be a limitation put on where you could live.
