Criminal Sexual Conduct (CSC) Charges In Michigan

Criminal sexual conduct (CSC) charges are very serious in nature. You need an attorney who has experience defending against CSC charges and who can relentlessly protect your rights at every stage of your criminal defense case.

My name is David G. Moore, a criminal sexual conduct defense lawyer and former district attorney who established this law firm in Kalamazoo to protect the rights of people like you — ordinary people charged with serious crimes, including criminal sexual conduct crimes such as sexual abuse, child molestation, rape and statutory rape.

CSC Allegations May Be Made for Any Number of Reasons

I am aware, as both a former prosecutor and as a defense attorney, that sexual assault allegations can often be based on misunderstandings, false statements or other circumstances:

  • A divorced parent, who is angry about his or her ex-partner's new partner, may manipulate the child into making false allegations of child molestation
  • When divorcing parents are disputing custody, one parent may make accusations to prevent the other parent from obtaining custody of a child
  • Minors may have lied to an adult romantic partner about their age and now the adult is being accused of statutory rape

I am ready to defend you from the moment that you call. I can begin working on your case, examining every aspect of the arrest record, tracking down and carefully interviewing all witnesses, uncovering additional evidence that works to your advantage and exploring whether your rights were violated at any point — before, during or after your arrest.

Penalties For Criminal Sexual Conduct (CSC)

  • CSC 1 — Life offense
  • CSC 2 and CSC 3 — Jail time up to 15 years
  • CSC 4 — Jail time up to two years
  • Assault with intent to commit a CSC — jail time up to 10 years

If You Are Under Investigation But Not Yet Charged

If you know you are under investigation and you have not yet been charged, time is of the essence. Hire an attorney as soon as possible before you are arrested. Frequently, there are false allegations made. I can conduct a quick and confidential investigation. I can supply that information to law enforcement officials, to the advantage of my client, to help avoid charges altogether, in some situations.
