Child Molestation / Child Sex Crimes
Southfield Sex Crime Allegations Defense Attorney
Even if there is no physical evidence in charges of child molestation or child sex crimes, prosecutors in Michigan will pursue such cases, and jurors also seem to require much less proof to convict a person of a child sex crime. Because of the specific nature child sex crimes, others are much more likely to take such allegations for the gospel truth with little or no proof or evidence. Even those who have been falsely accused, can find themselves becoming a pariah in their own community. A conviction of a child sex crime can carry a lengthy prison sentence, not to mention a possible lifetime mandate to register as a sex offender. Your employment can be compromised, and you could lose everything you’ve worked for in your life, including your family. Because the cards are severely stacked against you in a child molestation charge, it’s especially important that you have the very best legal defense.

Child Molestation Charges are Legally Complex
Allegations of child sex crimes can be difficult and complicated to defend. Even though the state of Michigan has ostensibly developed special protocols for questioning children who have made such allegations, the truth is that these protocols go by the wayside in many cases. Allegations of child molestations leads to extensive investigation by any number of professionals, and their judgment may be clouded by the nature of the accusations. As the accused you will likely be completely stigmatized, even if the charges are later proven to be false, and it is well known that the testimony of children is much more easily manipulated.
Exercise Your Right to Remain Silent
Just as your Miranda warning states, you have the right to remain silent, and anything you say will not only be used against you, it will likely be taken out of context and exaggerated before it is used against you. One of the biggest mistakes most people make is speaking with police officers or CPS workers without benefit of having a lawyer present. Law enforcement personnel are allowed to lie to you and will often promise to make the charges disappear if only you will confess. Don’t believe it! Be polite, but refuse to speak until your lawyer arrives. The Miranda warning is in place for a reason—to prevent statements you make from being turned against you, resulting in a conviction.

What Are The Potential Defenses To Sex Crime Charges In Michigan?
One defense for any crime, including all forms of sex crimes, is to deny having committed the crime. While the proof of that defense becomes a lot more complex, the defense is frequently no more complicated than saying, “I didn’t do what they accuse me of doing.” For adult victim/date rape/campus sexual assault charges, another common defense is that it was consensual.
