Criminal Sexual Conduct - First Degree
Imprisonment for 25 Years
Lifetime Listing on the Michigan Sex Offender Registry
Not Guilty by Jury
Attorney Jordan’s client was charged with Criminal Sexual Conduct In the First Degree after a young girl said he touched her one night in bed when he was dating her mother. The disclosure was completely out of the blue as Attorney Jordan’s client and the girl’s mother had not been in a relationship for two years. At the time Attorney Jordan's client was charged he was about to get married and start a family.
Michigan Criminal Sexual Conduct in the First Degree charges are about as serious as it gets in the world of criminal charges. Attorney Jordan’s client faced a mandatory 25-year prison sentence, followed by registering as a sex offender on the Michigan Sex Offender Registry for life and a lifetime of wearing a GPS monitor.
Attorney Jordan found himself defending a client in court where there was not a mountain of evidence - just the allegation of one person – a young girl who made for a very sympathetic victim. He spent many hours planning the cross-examination of the young girl. He was able to demonstrate that the accuser was lying by showing inconsistencies in her testimony. After a four-week trial, the verdict was Not Guilty by Jury.
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.
