& Experienced Criminal Defense
If you are charged with first degree CSC with a child under 13 years old and you are over 17 years old, you are facing the most extreme penalty of all the sexual assault charges (CSC degrees). A sexual assault involving this type of charge means you must, no questions asked, contact Nicole Blank Becker of Blank Law, PC immediately.
The Michigan Sentencing Guidelines for first degree CSC with a child under 13 years old, and so long as the accuser is over 17 years old, is a mandatory minimum of 25 years in prison (learn what is mandatory minimum sentencing here). The penalty also includes needing to register on the sex offender registry for life, i.e. the Michigan Sex Offender Registry.

It is your responsibility, and your responsibility only, to confirm, check, and reconfirm the age of someone you chose to be intimate with. This falls solely on you, the adult.
