Charged With A Sex Crime? Our Attorneys Are Here To Protect Your Rights.
Few things stop someone in their tracks more than being accused of sexual assault. The mere accusation brands someone with a scarlet letter likely to follow them for the rest of their life. That is why it is so important to have the strongest representation possible when faced with such damning charges. In the Grand Rapids areas, the West Michigan Defense Team is that representation.
Our four attorneys take a team approach to your case. We have more than 85 years of combined legal experience, with some of our attorneys having experience as former prosecutors. We have a deep knowledge of and commitment to criminal defense. In fact, it is the sole focus of our practice. If you are facing sex crime charges, we are ready to give you the skilled defense you need and deserve.
Understand The Charges And The Potential Consequences
There are many wide-ranging actions that are considered sex crimes in Michigan, including:
- Internet sex crimes
- Prostitution, solicitation and related crimes
- Indecent exposure
- Child sexual abuse
- Possession of child pornography
The most serious classification of a sex crime is first-degree criminal sexual conduct, and a conviction carries up to life in prison, as well as the requirement to register as a sex offender if you were to be released. Even some significantly lower-level offenses that do not involve physical contact with another can land you on the sex offender registry.
We Are Here For You From The Very Beginning
When someone is being investigated for a sex crime, generally, an investigator will want to speak with them. You might not know if it is a good idea to speak with an investigator. However, we do, and we can guide you through the investigation process, which will likely take some time as well as some twists and turns. The West Michigan Defense Team has been routinely successful in assisting our clients during the investigation phase, sometimes resulting in no criminal charges being authorized by the prosecuting attorney.
If, however, charges are authorized, we zealously and vigorously defend our clients, every step of the way. We provide more than 85 years of combined legal experience in assisting you to determine the correct course of action and assess the strengths and weaknesses of both the prosecution’s case and our own defenses. Rest assured, in a scary and troubling time, we will work tirelessly to help you obtain the best available results.
