Being accused of a sex crime can often seem very different from other types of crimes.
At Smith Lehman, we often find that the legal presumption of innocence doesn’t exist in the same way that it does in many other cases. This is for a variety of reasons, including the high stakes and severe penalties that can arise, as well as the he-said/she-said manner of these types of sexual charges.
To fight these charges, it’s important to have experienced legal defense that understands criminal sexual conduct charges in Michigan, their definitions, and the potential consequences. If you have been accused of engaging in sexual conduct with another person without their consent, you should make it a priority to speak with a Michigan rape defense lawyer as soon as possible.
