Juvenile Criminal Sexual Conduct Attorneys
Defending You from Lifelong Consequences in Michigan
One of the most common crimes that juveniles are charged with in the State of Michigan is criminal sexual conduct. While being charged with a sex crime as a juvenile is different than as an adult, it can still lead to far-reaching consequences that may last for the individual's entire life. Due to what is at stake in these cases, it is important to have a trustworthy and knowledgeable team of Michigan sex crime attorneys by your side, defending you or your child's case.
Providing Legal Services for Both the Innocent & Guilty
At the Law Offices of Shannon M. Smith, P.C., we have over a decade of experience handling juvenile sex crimes. We have represented clients as young as eight years old, as well as countless pre-teens and teenagers charged with a variety of crimes. Whether your child is innocent of the charges and needs a quality defense to show that they have been falsely accused, or is technically guilty of violating the law and seeking treatment/rehabilitation, we can help. Our lawyers will sit down with you to discuss options and utilize the best course of action according to the specifics of the situation.
We often represent adolescents who have been accused of:
- Sexting pictures to one another
- Having sex with underage participants (even if the defendant is underage themselves)
Working to Keep Juveniles Off of the Sex Offender Registry
Depending on the circumstances of the case, being convicted of a sex crime may require a juvenile to register as a sex offender, even after they have become an adult. We know the major implications that sex offender registration can have on individuals. One of the top priorities of our Michigan sex crime lawyers is to help your child remain off of the registry.
Many times, treatment is very effective for juveniles so this may be an option. Taking the treatment or rehabilitation course can help our clients avoid a wide range of lifelong consequences.
