3RD DEGREE CRIMINAL SEXUAL CONDUCT IS A FELONY IN MICHIGAN
At Smith Lehman, we see clients most frequently charged with third degree criminal sexual conduct when the complaining witness or the alleged victim is someone who is under the age of 15, but over the age of 13. The crime must involve some kind of alleged penetration; either vaginal, anal, oral or digital penetration.
And many times these cases are charged when someone is underaged and has engaged in a consensual activity. Sometimes it applies when a person is making claims that they were just simply too young to consent to.
3rd degree criminal sexual conduct carries penalties including prison time and sex offender registry in Michigan.
