Child Endangerment in Sex Crimes in Michigan
If you’ve been accused of a sex crime in Michigan, it is possible that a prosecutor may try to charge you with child endangerment as well. Child endangerment is when a parent or guardian allows a child to be involved in a situation that is potentially unhealthy, dangerous, or inappropriate. For example, engaging in sexual conduct in front of a child is illegal and may result in dual criminal charges. If you’re facing multiple criminal charges, you’ll need the help of a knowledgeable and experienced CPS defense lawyer. He or she will review the details of your case and look for ways to prove your innocence and minimize the damage inflicted on you and your family. We know that misunderstandings and mistakes do happen, which is why we’re willing to put the necessary time and energy into building you a solid defense.

Understanding Child Endangerment Charges
When you are under investigation for child endangerment charges, the individual handling your case will look at specifics about the actions or situation that allegedly endangered the child, the injuries that resulted from the action or situation, and your intentions. Many don’t know that you can still face criminal charges if your child was not harmed as a result of your action or inaction. All a prosecutor has to do is prove that the child could have potentially been harmed and that a reasonable person would be able to foresee that. When Grabel & Associates handles your case, we’ll work to show that you did not commit the offense you were accused of, or in some cases, that you were unaware that your actions could harm your child at all. We’ll review every detail of your case to determine the best way to proceed from there, giving all we have to ensure you and your family’s future remains intact.
Sex Crimes and Child Endangerment Charges
As a parent or legal guardian, you are required by law to protect your children from anything that could cause significant physical, mental, or emotional harm. If you knowingly leave your child in a situation related to sexual activity that any reasonable person would deem dangerous, you could face child endangerment charges. Child endangerment charges are obviously taken very seriously by Michigan police and prosecutors. If you’re under investigation by the CPS, you could have someone show up at your front door and ask to speak with your children alone. If the worker handling your case determines your child or children are still in danger, he or she may request that your child or children be removed from your home during the investigative stage of your case. This can be traumatic for any child, making it difficult to get life back to normal after the case has been wrapped up.
If you want to protect your family from overzealous investigators, contacting a skilled defense attorney is the first step. Don’t wait until your children have been removed from their home to seek legal assistance. The Grabel & Associates team is available to begin working on your case at any point in time. The more time we have to develop a solid approach to your defense, the better your chances are of receiving a favorable outcome.
