Of all the criminal offenses a person in Flint can be charged with, sex crimes are often some of the most damaging. Not only does a person in this situation face the possibility of spending extended time behind bars, but even in cases where the defendant is acquitted of all charges, he or she still faces the stigma of being associated with a sex crime. That can harm a person for years to come.
In addition, anyone who is convicted of a sex crime faces the possibility of being registered as a sex offender. That could also cause serious problems throughout that person’s life, including where he or she chooses to live and whether or not a person can obtain certain types of employment; or any employment at all. Thus, being charged with a sex crime of any kind is very serious matter and should not be taken lightly. Speaking with an experienced criminal defense attorney right away is always a smart move if you’re facing these kinds of charges.
Authorities in Cadillac have arrested a man and charged him with more than a dozen sex crimes. According to reports, the man allegedly had a sexual relationship with a young girl. Investigators say that the man bribed the 12-year-old girl for sex for several years. He now faces 14 charges, including one of the most serious sex crimes: prostitution with a minor. Among the other charges the man is facing, include nine felony counts of criminal sexual conduct first degree and sexually abusive activity. Some of the charges even carry life sentences.
The charges against this man are obviously very serious and the evidence could appear to be very damaging. If convicted he faces multiple penalties including a lengthy prison sentence, possibly for the remainder of his life. However, even though the situation might appear to be bleak, all hope is not lost for this man, or anyone else in a similar situation.
