Michigan officials take these types of allegations extremely seriously. You will be thoroughly investigated if there is any indication that you’re involved in child sex crimes.

However, many people are falsely accused of various child sex crimes in the United States. Don’t rely on your innocence, as many innocent individuals have been put behind bars before. It’s essential to use a strong legal team to protect yourself against unjust charges.

At O’Keefe law, we specialize in a wide variety of different legal fields, including child pornography, molestation, and abuse. We’ll explore these crimes and their severity in more detail below:

Child Pornography Charges

It is illegal in the United States to possess, procure, or transfer indecent images of children or minors. If you are found to possess indecent images of children, you may face extremely lengthy prison sentences.

Michigan and federal officials take these forms of allegations extremely seriously.

Molestation Charges

Inappropriate contact with minors or children is also a significant offence in the United States. Charges related to child molestation can carry extremely long jail sentences.

Child Abuse Charges

Just because child abuse is not sexual, does not mean it won’t carry a substantial penalty. The state of Michigan views abusing children as a severe crime, whether they are your children or someone else’s.

Your Case May Become Federal

If you face allegations of distributing or procuring child pornography over state boundaries, you may encounter federal legal challenges. Not all cases of child abuse are confined within state lines. This brings a whole new level of problems to your current legal battle. State and federal trials are very different from one another.

Fortunately, O’Keefe Law has considerable trial experience in both state and federal courts. We can help you prepare for and fight federal charges if the US Government decides to attempt to convict you for child sex crimes.

Don’t underestimate the difference between a state and a federal case. Using a lawyer that doesn’t have experience in federal court can result in an unfair conviction. If you want to give yourself the best chance of success at the federal court level, call O’Keefe Law today!

Protect Your Character

If you want to protect your reputation within your family, community, and workplace, it’s essential to understand the severity of child sex crime allegations. If you do face charges of child pornography possession or child molestation, you will most likely lose your job and face severe consequences in your community.

You need to defend yourself adequately if you want to avoid the backlash associated with this type of allegation. Our team of experienced legal professionals understands how to help you return your life to normal.

We’ll begin by developing a defense strategy that provides clear evidence of your innocence. We’ll then approach the case with force to provide the best possible chance of a ‘not guilty’ verdict.

If you want to keep your reputation intact, it’s essential to avoid a conviction of this magnitude.

Sex Offenders Registry: The Curse of a Lifetime

While punishments for child sex crimes are incredibly severe, there are also other issues that you need to contend with. The Sex Offenders Registry is a database that will host your personal information and crime details. It’s in place to help protect other children from sexual predators.

Once you’re on this list, it’s tough to get your name removed. Many child sex offenders spend the rest of their lives on this list. While this is not only extremely damaging to your ability to make friends and integrate into your community, it also has some more tangible consequences.

Those registered on the sex offenders registry are often prohibited in working in specific industries. Many are also banned from living in certain neighborhoods or within certain distances of a school. These restrictions are particularly severe if your case involves a young child.
