Criminal Sexual Conduct offenses have ruined and changed more lives than any other criminal offense. This area of criminal law is cluttered with injustices, because cases are sometimes prosecuted without physical evidence, factual inconsistencies, lack of corroboration, and/or after many years of delay. When it comes to criminal sexual conduct allegations there are many who assume the worst of the accused, which goes against the presumption of innocence and the great Constitutional rights that in theory are supposed to eliminate false convictions. The alleged victims of criminal sexual conduct are given special attention and care by "victim's advocates" and prosecutors, which may sound good when it relates to real victims of sexual abuse, but it also has the tendency to emotionally reward and protect persons who make false claims. Even with an alleged victim recanting an untrue CSC accusation, the case is often not dismissed because the prosecution will argue that it is up to a jury to decide if the alleged victim was credible in their recantation or credible in their original statement.
Criminal sexual conduct cases are often assigned to "special prosecutors" who are assigned to only prosecute these types of allegations, and who have specialized training in order to gain the largest number of convictions. The laws in Michigan are formulated to give the prosecution an unfair advantage by allowing in most cases statements by the alleged victim that were at one time considered to be inadmissible hearsay, allowing in many cases the admission of other act evidence, and by harsh sentencing measures upon conviction including potentially years of incarceration.
There are a number of different reasons why false allegations of sexual abuse arise, including: prejudice, bias, child custody related issues, anger, false memories, coaching of witnesses, mental illness, the need for attention, mistaken identity, etc. The ability of the defense to develop a theory or reason for the false sexual allegation is important, because the attitude of many is to question the reason why an alleged victim would lie about rape or sexual abuse unless they are given a credible reason for the same to have occurred. There may be a need to also retain expert witnesses to provide the jury with an explanation as to why false allegations of criminal sexual conduct are pursued in courtrooms. It is important to work hand and hand with your attorney to fully develop and present your defense in a credible, consistent, and compelling manner.
If incarcerated with the Michigan Department of Corrections, a convicted sex offender will need to complete sex offender classes/therapy in prison to be placed on parole, which often takes years to complete due to the waiting list to enter the same. A jail or prison sentence is not uncommon for a conviction related to these types of offenses.
After conviction for a CSC offense there are stringent sex offender registration requirements which the convicted offender is required to comply with, including: the need to register once, twice, or four times a year (depending upon the underlying conviction); the need to register if the offender moves, vacates their residence, goes on a vacation, attends a school, obtains a job, obtains a new email address, obtains a motor vehicle, and/or changes their name. The convicted offender must also maintain a Michigan driver's license or personal identification card, and their are limitations concerning where the person can reside, work, or loiter. Depending on the offense and/or the age of the alleged victim, the convicted offender may be subject to wearing a tether for the rest of their life. These types of convictions can destroy careers and families.
