Because the age of consent and age at which a person is considered a juvenile are so close, many juveniles are charged with criminal sexual conduct and other sex crimes in Southfield and throughout the state. Since individuals under the age of 16 cannot lawfully consent to sexual activity, anyone who engages in sexual activity of any kind with a partner under the age of 16 can face criminal charges, even if the alleged offender is also under the age of consent. Juvenile CSC is very serious, and because most cases of criminal sexual conduct would normally be felonies, adult court sentencing is very possible. Grabel & Associates knows that a lot is on the line for juveniles accused of sex crimes, and our firm is committed to protecting those facing allegations of sex with a minor, rape, and other sexual misconduct.

Criminal sexual conduct occurs when a person engages in unlawful sexual penetration or contact, which includes sexual activity with a person under the age of 16. In the most serious juvenile CSC cases, adult court sentencing is possible, and it is crucial that you work with a lawyer who can defend you as you fight to ensure your case is not waived out of the juvenile court system. CSC accusations can also result in cases involving sexual activity accomplished by force, or other unlawful sex acts.
Other sex crimes common to juvenile law include child pornography charges, often incurred through “sexting” and other modern communication, and charges of public indecency/lewd conduct. Whatever charges you are facing, contact Grabel & Associates now and fight back against conviction. No sex crime case should be taken lightly, and it is possible that your case could be extremely time sensitive. Call or contact us online now and let our team immediately go to work to protect your rights and fight to pursue a case outcome that aligns with your best interests.
It is very difficult to say what the penalties for an offense will be in a juvenile case, because there are no specific set penalties for cases heard in juvenile court. If waived to adult court, however, up to 25 years behind bars could be on the line, even for offenders under 17 years old (the maximum penalty for 1st degree CSC for adults is life in prison). Fight back against life-altering penalties now with Grabel & Associates.
