You Need Grabel & Associates in Your Corner When You are Facing Sex Crime Charges
When you watch a detective show on television, read about a case in the newspaper, or hear about a crime on the local news, it is easy to believe that you understand how the criminal justice system works. However, when you find yourself personally involved in a criminal investigation, you soon realize that television is nothing like reality. Shows and news accounts can only skim the surface of all that is happening, and sitting in the calm of your living room hearing about someone else does little to prepare you for the anxiety and fear that can accompany the minute-by-minute experience of knowing that your freedom is on the line.

The city of Utica lies in Macomb County, Michigan, about 17 miles from Detroit. Although originally platted in 1829 as "Harlow," Utica was named shortly thereafter by transplanted settlers from New York after the New York city of the same name, just like the neighboring cities of Rochester and Troy, Michigan. Utica has a small historic district, although few of Utica's buildings predate 1906, due to fires that destroyed much of the city's buildings in 1905 and 1906. The population of Utica is 4,922. The crime rate in Utica is moderately lower than the national average, and there are only 5 sex offenders living in Utica registered under the Michigan Sex Offenders Registration Act, indicating that the ratio of residents to sex offenders in Utica is a very low approximate 2,461 to one.
