When You Are Facing Charges in a Sex Crime, You Should Not Proceed Without an Experienced Defense Attorney
If you are convicted of a criminal sexual offense in the state of Michigan, the consequences are likely to involve much more than a fine and community service. A sex crime conviction can result in a lengthy prison sentence and, even after release, may require registration under Michigan's Sex Offender Registry Act (SORA) a requirement that can haunt your family, your employment prospects, your personal relationships, and your social standing for the rest of your life. When even an allegation of sexual misconduct with nothing more can severely damage an individual’s standing in the community, it is clear that the consequences of conviction are much more dire. When the stakes are this high, you cannot afford to take foolish risks.
If You Have Been Accused of a Sexual Criminal Offense, Grabel & Associates Can Help
It is critical that you hire an experienced sex crimes defense attorney as soon as you discover that you are the subject of a sex crime investigation, even if you think the charges are false, mistaken, or blown out of proportion. Unfortunately, sexual misconduct accusations can be made by anyone regardless of whether any physical evidence exists; all it may take to get an investigation started is one individual making a verbal allegation. And because sex offenses are so emotionally charged particularly if they involve minors they are frequently pursued aggressively by prosecutors, who have no reason to believe in anyone’s innocence.
Because so much is at stake, you need an assertive, confident, and competent lawyer who will stand by your side from the outset of a case, to make sure that your rights are not violated, and to help you avoid making missteps or assumptions that could unwittingly jeopardize your future. When your freedom is at stake, get the peace of mind you need by putting your case in the experienced hands of the defense team at Grabel & Associates.
