Sex crime charges are some of the most severe accusations that a defendant can receive in Detroit. Without the expert help of a professional Detroit sex crimes lawyer, the defendant may face permanent damage to their lifestyle and reputation.
The Impact of Sex Crimes Allegations
An entire history of sex crime cases shows that allegations of sexual offenses have an astonishing impact on the lives of both the victim and the defendant regardless if they are eventually proven true or not.
Firstly, because the State of Michigan does not take kindly to sex crimes and offenses, and the potential penalties are life-changing, to say the least.
Secondly, sex crime accusations usually involve people who are acquainted with each other. Such allegations can tear families apart, end friendships, and spell the end of the potentially good reputation that the offender had up until that point.
The social stigma increases as the gravity of the accusation worsen. A person who is accused of sex crimes against a minor has to live with a permanently damaged reputation for the rest of their life. Even when they are proven not guilty, there is a societal presumption that people who are accused of such horrible crimes are also culpable.
Consequences for Sex Crimes Defendants
With very few exceptions, most sex crimes cases in Detroit have plenty of grey areas and difficult-to-prove allegations. More than often, it is the alleged victim’s word against the alleged aggressor’s word. The latter’s statements may be taken out of context, twisted and rearranged by the prosecutor to divide the image defining the case into perfectly distinguishable black and white areas.
A sex crime in Michigan may come with one or more life-changing consequences, such as:
- A jail or prison sentence
- Costly criminal fines or court fees
- Registration as a sex offender
- A permanent criminal record as a sex offender
- Restrictions on where you can live or work
- Restrictions on bank credits, house rental, and car leasing conditions
- Become unable to obtain a license to practice your profession
- Lose your existing license to practice law, medicine, teaching, nursing, pharmacy, etc.
- Lose full or partial custody of your children
- Lose your immigration visa or your green card
- Be denied citizenship or be deported to your native country if you’re a non-U.S. citizen
