Child Abandonment During a Sex Crime Case in Michigan

In the state of Michigan, you can be charged with multiple crimes arising out of the same situation. If you’re a parent facing sex crime charges, it is possible that the prosecutor will also bring child abandonment charges against you, depending on the details of your case. For example, if you are caught selling or transferring custody of your minor child to someone else knowing that the result of that transfer of custody will be some form of engagement in sexually explicit conduct, you could face sex crime charges and child abandonment charges. You may also be offered a plea deal that involves child abandonment, or face an investigation from CPS after other criminal charges.

In the state of Michigan, it is against the law for parents or guardians to refuse emotional, financial or physical support to their child or children. If you’re found guilty of child abandonment, you could face fines and imprisonment or even lose your parental rights.

Behavior Demonstrates Child Abandonment in Michigan

The legal definition of child abandonment involves a parent or guardian purposefully withholding support from his or her dependent without care for that child’s wellbeing. This behavior must be consistent over a period of time to be considered a crime. For example, leaving your child with his or her aunt for the afternoon without providing money for dinner is not illegal. If you leave your child for three months without providing for his or her needs, you could face criminal charges. The prosecutor has to be able to show that your behavior demonstrated a lack of care and concern for your child and that that behavior opened the door for harm or potential harm.

If your actions were misinterpreted by mandated reporters or overzealous prosecutors, you’ll need the help of a skilled defense attorney to win your life back. The investigation process can damage your reputation, harm your relationship with your family, and make it extremely difficult to move on after everything has been cleared up. The sooner you take action and start battling back, the better your chances are of limiting the damage and protecting your family.
