The Cromer Law Group PLLC – Being arrested or charged with a sex offense, such as criminal sexual conduct (CSC) or rape, immediately changes your life and affects your entire future. An accusation and investigation into your life can be not only embarrassing, but can harm your hard earned reputation or cause you to lose your job or even your family. In Michigan, a conviction may mean a very lengthy prison sentence, together with decades of registration on the Michigan Sex Offender registry.
There are four “degrees” of criminal sexual conduct charges in Michigan. Conviction on a charge of even the lowest degree/level, could easily be a sentence of up to two (2) years in prison, together with required registration as a Sex Offender for 25 years.
At The Cromer Law Group PLLC, we pride ourselves on aggressively representing our clients, while at the same time, striving to keep the matter as discrete as possible. We have represented clients charged with the following sex offenses:
- Aggravated sexual assault
- Date rape
- Statutory rape
- Indecent exposure
- Child pornography
- Child molestation
- Sexual contact with any minors
- Indecent exposure
- Lewd and/or lascivious acts
- Computer sex crimes and internet solicitation of a minor
At The Cromer Law Group PLLC, we have worked with clients throughout the entire state of Michigan. The stigma of a sex offense accusation causes some people to plead guilty quickly in hopes of making the situation go away quickly. Other people attempt to prove their innocence by providing information that is then used against them. If you are facing such an accusation, even if you have not yet been formally charged, you should discuss your situation with an experienced defense attorney as soon as possible. Even if a crime has been committed and you wish to accept responsibility for your actions, you will need someone to negotiate on your behalf.
All too often, law enforcement will misrepresent to individuals that no charges will be filed if the suspect just simply tells (the cops) exactly what happened. This is simply an interrogation tactic, which often secures confessions from individuals accused of a crime, and had the suspect been properly advised of their constitutional rights (right to remain silent; right to an attorney; right to know that anything you say can and usually will be used against you), it is likely no damaging statement would ever be given. It is always imperative that people realize that they have an absolute right to remain silent and that the only statement a person should ever make to the police is this: “I want to speak with a lawyer, now.” Period!!!! If you shut up because you know your rights — you may live to fight another day.
