Defense to Keep You Off the Sex Offender Registry
It's a fact that anyone convicted of a sex crime in Michigan has to be listed on the sex offender registry. This listing makes life difficult: Anywhere you go, the social stigma of a sex crime can follow you. What's worse, the registry makes no distinction between those convicted of first-degree criminal sexual conduct and those convicted of fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct.
In other words, the severity of the crime doesn't matter. Even a relatively minor sex crime conviction carries the same weight as a conviction for a crime like rape. Defense attorneys at the Schwartz Law Firm work diligently and efficiently in their efforts to get your charges dropped or to convince the jury to find you not guilty. It's the only way to keep your name off the registry. While we can't promise any specific outcomes, we can work to show you that we take your rights, liberty and reputation as seriously as you do.
How Will Schwartz Law Firm Defend Me?
In most sex crimes cases, there are two individuals involved: the accuser and the accused. Because criminal sexual conduct is so often private in nature, there is often no one else who could have directly witnessed the alleged crime. If there is no physical evidence to corroborate the story, then the jury has nothing but the accuser's testimony on which to base a guilty verdict.
This leads naturally to an important question: Is the accuser credible? In other words, is the accuser's testimony enough to conclude the defendant's guilt "beyond a reasonable doubt" without additional facts? In many cases, it quite simply is not.
