Child Sex Crimes

Few criminal charges carry the same severity as sex crime charges involving children. Investigations can become high-profile matters with guilty verdicts in the courts of public opinion. Far too many innocent Michigan residents have been forced to fend off the accusations, only to have their personal and professional relationships left in tatters.

Fighting To Even The Odds Or Protect Your Rights

Prosecutors are unrelenting in their investigations and evidence gathering. They employ all resources at their disposal to secure a verdict of guilty. Speaking to them before talking to an attorney can be catastrophic to your case and gives up your rights, specifically to remain silent.

Immediate legal advocacy is paramount if you have been charged with a child molestation, child sexual abuse or possession of illegal pornography. Time is of the essence for an attorney to counter the prosecution's resources and diligence in pursuing a guilty verdict. The sooner you contact an experienced criminal defense attorney at Law office of Timothy M. Williams J.D.P.C., the sooner we can help you.

The repercussions for convictions of internet sex crimes, sex with minor and other child sex abuse crimes can last a lifetime. In addition to prison sentences, probation and significant fines and restitution, you could spend years, if not decades as a registered sex offender. Regardless of where you live, the surrounding community will be notified of your arrival and the background you are bringing into the community.

Lansing Child Sexual Abuse Lawyer

When it comes to crimes that fall under the broad category of "child molestation" or "child sexual abuse" the consequences are among the most serious of all sex crimes. Depending on the nature of the charge, it will fall under one of the four degrees.

Criminal sexual conduct (CSC), first degree, carries with it a possible mandatory minimum of 25 years in prison, lifetime tether and sex offender registration.

Criminal sexual conduct (CSC), second degree, may also result in up to 15 years in prison, possible lifetime tether and mandatory sex offender registration.

Criminal sexual conduct (CSC), third degree, is punishable by a possible 15 years in prison and sex offender registration.

Criminal sexual conduct (CSC), fourth degree, is punishable by up to two years in prison and sex offender registration.

CSC first and third degrees involve offenses of penetration, which includes oral sex. CSC second and fourth degrees involve offense of sexual contact. Convictions for any of these offenses require sex offender registration. The sex offender registration is only part of the problem. Problems regarding the student safety zone or 100-foot rule will also pose problems for those placed on SORA.

Lansing Brain Injury And Head Trauma Lawyer

Shaken Baby Syndrome/Head Trauma

A baby's life is the most precious and holds so much potential. For a person to cause an innocent baby, who can't protect or defend itself, to suffer harm due to negligence, ill will or oversight is inexcusable. When a vulnerable baby suffers injury or death, family members are left to cope with unimaginable grief, which is why seeking support as well as helpful legal information is of the utmost importance.

What Is Shaken Baby Syndrome (SBS)?

Shaken baby syndrome is the horrible outcome of violence against a small child. If a child in your life is exhibiting symptoms of this brain injury, get him or her to the hospital immediately. Then, call an experienced attorney who will fight for the innocent child.

Shaken baby syndrome, sometimes called abusive head trauma, is the cumulative set of symptoms suffered by an infant or toddler who has been the victim of abuse that caused head trauma. When a child is thrown, shaken or slammed hard enough to cause the brain to move around inside the skull, the brain can be seriously injured. One move from a frustrated, abusive adult can change a child's life forever.

When a child's head is rattled, it can tear blood vessels and cause cerebral bleeding and hematoma. Brain tissues slammed into the skull can be so damaged that the impacted cells die. Internal bleeding can lead to added intracranial pressure, causing secondary damage.

Early Effects Common To Shaken Baby Syndrome

There are not external injuries associated with shaken baby syndrome, but the internal injuries cause the following signs and symptoms:

  • Blood around the eyes (retinal bleeding)
  • Difficulty breathing, shallow breathing or stopped breathing
  • Unusual muscular behavior such as limpness in the limbs or the opposite, rigidity
  • Unresponsiveness, tiredness and altered consciousness
  • Inability to eat or suck and vomiting
  • Seizures
  • Death

Long-Term Effects Of Shaken Baby Syndrome

Whether it is the parent, babysitter or another person responsible, the child never had a chance. A baby's life can be fundamentally changed. Long-term effects of shaken baby syndrome, if the child survives, include the following:

  • Vision loss or blindness, hearing loss and other physical disabilities
  • Speech and learning disabilities, behavior disorders and other cognitive difficulties
  • Cerebral palsy and seizures
  • Death

Protecting the Rights Of Injured Babies And their Families

The most tragic thing about shaken baby syndrome is the fact that the victim cannot speak up for himself or herself. It is up to the people who love this child to do the right thing, and to go after the at-fault party, even if it is a family member. You owe it to the baby who has suffered needlessly to take legal action.

Shaken baby syndrome is the result of an abusive act against a completely innocent and helpless victim. There is no excuse for it. The Law Office of Timothy M. Williams has experience handling catastrophic injury, brain injury, medical malpractice and personal injury cases. We understand how important it is for families to win justice and the compensation they deserve for the wrongdoing that's been committed against them.
