Conviction for a sex crime causes a lifetime of adverse consequences. Sex offender registration is required in Michigan. In Michigan, a registered offender cannot live near schools or playgrounds. Being charged with a sex crime can destroy a person’s reputation in society. The consequences of a sex crime conviction are life changing. Even when found not guilty, an innocent person’s life can be changed forever. Attorney Patrick Fragel will design a legal defense to sex crime to help you through this challenging time.

Obtain a Lawyer 

Are you or a loved one being investigated or charged with a sex crime? If so, you need legal counsel immediately. Your statements to the police or Children’s Protective Serive (CPS) will be used against you. Your statements will become part of the evidence used to convict you. You need to have a highly competent criminal defense attorney advice you before, during and after any contact with the police. It is crucial to hire an attorney once you are the focus of a sex crime investigation.

Polygraph Option

Michigan law says a person accused of a sex crime shall be given a polygraph examination or lie detector test if the defendant requests it.

If the polygraph test show the person is being truthful, then law enforcement will consider dismissing the sex crime charges. In many cases, most police agencies are willing to administer a polygraph examination to a suspect before charges are authorized, or during the investigation. This is why contacting a sex crime attorney is crucial. Expert preparation for the polygraph examination will deliver the best outcome possible for you or your loved one.
