At Canu Torrice Law our attorneys have been waiting for a remedy of this illogical and unfair law places Defendant’s names on the Michigan Sex Offender Registry for consentual underage sex for Criminal Sexual Conduct (CSC) convictions. Now the attorneys at Canu Torrice Law can finally hep all the Michigan teenage Defendants who have been unjustly prosecuted and convicted of having consensual sex with a female (or male) between the age of 13 and 16, who are not more than 4 years older than the underage person, have an opprotunity to expunge themselves from the Michigan Sex Offender Registry with the attorneys at Canu Torrice Law. The lawyers at our Michigan sex crime defense law firm have always strived to campaign and zealously defend against such unfair and opressive laws for years, and now our attorneys finally have a remedy for convicted CSC Defendants for consensual underage sex.
Under Governer Rick Snyder’s recent legislation, many teenagers cited for having consensual sex with minors no longer would be listed on Michigan’s sex offender registry.
The governor signed the sex offender registry bills just this past Tuesday April 12, 2011 to comply with federal law. Under the measures, young CSC offenders will no longer be listed for having consensual sex with partners who were between the ages of 13 and 16, provided the offender was not more than four years older than the victim. The new Michigan law allows for lawyers to petition the Courts to let those young offenders currently on the Michigan Sex Offender rRegistry be taken off if a court determines the sex was consensual.
Canu Torrice Law has been waiting for such sensible legislation for a long time, and now we are ready to petition the Courts on behalf of our clients to remove their names from the Michigan Sex Offender Registry that literally ruins their lives, and labels them as a “sex offender” for nothing more than consentual sex.
Call Canu Torrice Law today for a free consultation and we will begin the process of removing your name from Michigan’s Sex OffenderRegistry.
