Grand Rapids Statutory Rape Attorneys

The age of consent in the state of Michigan is 16 years old, with a few exceptions, such as if the older individual was a school employee, teacher, or other individuals in a position of authority. As such, the crime of statutory rape involves an adult who has sex with a child between the ages of 13 and 16 years old.

Although many prosecutors will attempt to make statutory rape charges seem cut and dry, there are methods of defense which our Grand Rapids sex crime lawyers can use on your behalf. For example, we may be able to prove that you were lied to about the complainant's age or that it was a case of mistaken identity.

Blanchard Law can defend you against all types of charges, including:

  • Rape
  • Statutory rape
  • Date rape
  • Spousal rape

Understanding the Serious Consequences of a Rape Conviction

Many of our clients make the mistake of believing that their charges are not as serious as they really are. If you are convicted of rape in any form, you could be facing life-altering consequences. In addition to possible imprisonment, probation, fines, and other penalties, you will be required to register as a sex offender for the rest of your life.

If you have been accused of rape or statutory rape, call our Grand Rapids sex crime attorneys
now at (616) 244-2234.
