Juvenile Avoids Prison Term for Multiple Sex Crimes

Apr 11, 2017, by Maurice Davis in Case Results, Sex Crimes

Facing a sex crime charge in Michigan is a very serious matter and it is imperative to reach out to a qualified criminal defense attorney, who has considerable experience handling sexual offenses. For example, a high school student wound up in a potentially devastating legal position when he was accused of multiple felony counts of criminal sexual conduct with two underage victims. Since the individual was charged as an adult, if convicted, he ran the risk of spending between 15 years and the rest of his life in prison. When confronted with such a dire outcome, the man and his family knew that he needed serious legal counsel from a veteran Detroit sex crimes attorney and retained Maurice Davis.

Attorney Davis did not want to see his young client’s life unnecessarily ruined by a lengthy prison sentence and began crafting his defense. By advocating for his client and highlighting the need for rehabilitation instead of incarceration, attorney Davis negotiated for a drastically reduced outcome. Ultimately, his client agreed to fewer charges in the juvenile system, which removed the fear of substantial time behind bars and he only needed to serve 16 months in a juvenile facility in addition to a period of probation.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
