Romeo And Juliet Laws


The “Romeo and Juliet” law applies ONLY to Statutory Rape Cases.

The “Romeo and Juliet” law protects certain youthful offenders from having to otherwise be on the Michigan Sex Offender Registry list.


The “Romeo and Juliet” laws were put in place to prevent individuals who engage in consensual sexual activity when both participants are significantly close in age to each other, and one or both partners are below the age of consent, to be exempt from having to register on the Michigan Sex Offender Registry.

In order for the accused to be eligible for the benefit of the “Romeo and Juliet” law, the accused must meet the following:

  • A registered offender who had consensual sex with the accuser at least 13 years old but less than 16 years old
  • Who was not more than 4 years older than the accuser at the time of the sexual contact.

If you fall within the above eligibility requirements and are currently registering on the Michigan Sex Offender Registry, you need to contact Blank Law, PC immediately. If the above factors apply to you and your case, Blank Law, PC can petition the court and request immediate removal from the registry.
