Michigan Sex Crime Attorneys
At Kronzek & Cronkright, PLLC, one of our main practice areas is sex crime defense. Sex crimes are crimes that involve some sort of sexually explicit behavior. In Michigan, many of the crimes people think of that involve sexual behavior—including rape and statutory rape—are included in the Criminal Sexual Conduct laws.
Degrees of Criminal Sexual Conduct
Criminal Sexual Conduct (“CSC”) is broken down into four degrees, with first degree CSC and third degree CSC involving “sexual penetration,” and second degree CSC and fourth degree CSC involving “sexual contact.”
Our attorneys can review with you the difference between sexual penetration and sexual contact allegations. Your attorney can also explain which aggravating factors could bring a CSC 3 charge up to a CSC 1 charge and a CSC 4 charge up to a CSC 2 charge.
Penalties for CSC crimes
Punishments for convictions of any of the four degrees of Michigan sex crimes may include imprisonment including up to life in prison and a 25 year mandatory minimum in some instances. In addition, convicted sex offenders are generally placed on Michigan’s sex offender registry. It is the job of a highly-skilled sex crime attorney to work to get the charges against their client dismissed so that the client will not face harsh punishments. Our attorneys work tirelessly reviewing the evidence against our clients, negotiating with the prosecution, and arguing in court for the best results.

We take an aggressive stance on defending our clients, which includes hiring top-notch expert witnesses and investigators to help with the case.
