There are four distinct degrees of CSC that a person can be charged with. 1st degree and 2nd degree CSC occur when the alleged victim is under 13, or when the alleged victim is under 16 when a mitigating factor such as family, employee, or student relationship exist, or when sexual assault occurs (with weapons, causing injury, or through force or coercion). The difference between 1st and 2nd degree CSC is that 1st degree requires sexual penetration, while 2nd degree CSC can result from cases involving sexual contact alone.
3rd and 4th degree CSC are similarly distinguished by the presence or absence of sexual penetration. Any other case not included in 1st or 2nd degree which involves an alleged victim under 16, or that involves force or coercion, or that involves a mentally incapable person, or that involves some sort of authoritative relationship can lead to 3rd or 4th degree CSC charges.
It is important to be aware of all the possible situations that can lead to Criminal Sexual Conduct conviction, which are more detailed than what can be included here. Always consult an attorney before taking any action in your case, as every step can be critical as you proceed through a CSC case.
