Criminal Sexual Conduct 4th Degree


If you or someone you know has been accused of criminal sexual conduct (CSC) in the 4th degree in Michigan, he or she is subject to a punishment of up to two years in prison and a potential fine. The prosecution will not hesitate to start building a case against you, and you will need to secure an excellent Michigan defense team to get the results you want. CSC charges are very serious, and any form of sexual assault can result in a complicated judicial process. Without the guidance of our experienced Michigan attorneys, you may spend time in jail and your reputation could be permanently damaged.

The Michigan Penal Code (750.520e) outlines that a person is guilty of criminal sexual conduct in the fourth degree if sexual contact with another person occurs accompanying any of the following:

  • The other person is at least 13 but under 16 years of age, and the accused is at least 5 years older than that other person.
  • Force or coercion is used in accomplishing sexual contact (in the form of physical violence, threats of violence, threats of future harm, unacceptable medical treatment or examination, surprise, or concealment)
  • The accused has reason to know the other person is mentally incapable, mentally incapacitated, or physically helpless.
  • The accused is a mental health professional and sexual contact occurs during or within two years of the period in which the victim is his or her client and is not his or her spouse. Victim consent cannot be used to defend prosecution with this condition.
  • The other person is related to the accused by blood or affinity to the third degree, and is not legally married to the accused.
  • The other person is between 16 and 18 years of age and is a student at a public or non public school and either of the following applies: the accused is a teacher, substitute, or administrator of that school or district, and the student is not emancipated or legally married to the accused; the accused is an employee, volunteer or service provider of the school or district; or the accused is a government employee assigned to provide a service to that school or district and uses that status to gain access to the other person.
  • The other person is between 16 and 26 years of age and is receiving special education services, and either of the following applies: the accused is a teacher, substitute, administrator, employee, or volunteer of the school or district providing the special education services, and is not married to the other person at the time of the sexual contact; the accused is an employee or contractual service provider of the school or district, or a government employee assigned to provide a service to the school or district providing special education services and uses this position to establish a relationship with the other person.
