What Is a Sex Crime?

The state of Michigan categorizes sex crimes into various degrees, depending on the level of the offense. The degrees vary from a fourth degree offense, which involves sexual contact without penetration, to a first degree offense, which constitutes rape, child molestation, or aggravated assault. First degree offenses may result in a mandatory prison sentence with a minimum of 25 years.

Other punishable sex crimes include:

  • Prostitution
  • Domestic sexual abuse
  • Sex with a consenting minor
  • Statutory rape
  • Sexual assault and battery
  • Child pornography
  • Voyeurism
  • Sex trafficking

Sex Offender Registration in Michigan

If you are proven guilty of a sex crime involving a minor, chances are that you will be forced to register as a sex offender. Your name will be put in a directory which is publically available online. Sex offenders are also required to maintain a safe distance from playgrounds, schools, and day care centers. If you live close to one of these areas, you may be required to move to comply with these laws.

Offenders can be registered in Tier I, Tier II, or Tier III:

  • Tier I: This tier requires sex offender registration for up to 15 years. Offenders are typically guilty of a sex crime with a non-minor.
  • Tier II: Individuals that committed a non-violent sexual crime with a minor must be registered as a sex offender for 25 years.
  • Tier III: This includes rape, statutory rape, and violent child sex crime offenses. Individuals in this category will most likely remain in the sex offender registry for life.
