Criminal Sexual Conduct (CSC) Charges
There are few criminal charges — if any — that can be more devastating than a sex crime charge. The mere allegation of a sex offense could cost you your job, your community reputation and even your marriage. If you are convicted, you face severe criminal penalties, possible registration as a sex offender and the stigma of being labeled a sexual predator by society.
In Michigan, there are four degrees of Criminal Sexual Conduct (CSC). They range from CSC first degree, which carries a maximum prison sentence of life and lifetime electronic monitoring. CSC second degree and third degree charges may result in imprisonment for up to 15 years. CSC fourth degree carries a maximum sentence of 2 years.
