You Can't Afford to Put Your Trust in "The System" When Its Goal is to Obtain a Conviction Right or Wrong
Like most states, Michigan has very stringent sex crime laws, and they are enforced zealously. If you have been implicated in any kind of misdemeanor or felony sex crime charge in Michigan, you cannot afford to pin your future on the slim hope that you are going to be treated fairly, honestly, and with respect for your constitutional rights. Law enforcement often is more interested in closing the case and obtaining a conviction than in protecting your rights. The only way you will be able to protect your rights adequately is by getting the right criminal defense team on your side as quickly as possible.
When You Are Facing Charges for Criminal Sexual Conduct, You Need to Hire the Right Attorney
The police and prosecutors are not there to be your friend or to help you. They frequently use deception and tricks to try to get you to incriminate yourself. If you the police start to ask you questions even before you have been formally charged it is time to hire an aggressive criminal defense lawyer. Hiring a lawyer before you are arrested or before charges are filed can often result in charges never being filed at all and therefore, resulting in no mark on a criminal record. Remember: hiring an attorney is not an admission of guilt, no matter what the police tell you. Hiring an attorney is the one way to level the playing field when the resources of law enforcement are being used against you.
