Understanding Sentencing for Sex Crimes in Michigan

The severity of a sex crime charge is denoted by degree. First-degree charges are more serious than second-, third-, or fourth-degree charges, and are likely to incur a more severe penalty.

The following are the maximum sentences for sex crime convictions:

  • First degree — Life sentence, especially for a subsequent conviction or crime committed against a child aged 13 or younger
  • Second degree — Up to 15 years in prison
  • Third degree — Up to 15 years in prison
  • Fourth degree — Up to 2 years in prison and/or a fine of up to $500

If you are an adult convicted of criminal sexual conduct in the first or second degree in Michigan, you will also be sentenced to lifetime electronic monitoring.

Sex Offender Registry in Michigan

The sex offender registry is online database that has your name, age, distinguishing characteristics and details about the crime that you were convicted of. Having to register as a sex offender can have lifelong consequences, making it very difficult finding places to work, live and more. This is why you should contact a sex crime attorney from Rights Law.

You don’t have to face the maximum sentence. You have the right to a trial based on evidence, not public opinion. Rights First Law takes an objective approach that cuts through the melodrama. We can make sure the court considers the evidence of your case, not just the emotions.
