Sexual Assault

If you have been charged with or are being investigated for sexual assault, don't trust anyone except the experienced criminal defense lawyers of Garton & Vogt, P.C.

Do not speak to law enforcement officers or investigators without first speaking with us. You have the right to remain silent. Do not explain or even deny anything without our attorneys present.

We have the extensive training needed to handle complex and high-stakes criminal defense cases. We protect our clients tirelessly and independently investigate the circumstances surrounding allegations of sexual assault or battery. Our law firm is built on our attorneys' more than 25 years of experience defending people at all levels of Michigan courts.

Penalties for a criminal sexual conduct (CSC) conviction include a lengthy prison sentence up to life imprisonment, substantial fines and public listing on the sex offender registry, which would affect your future job opportunities, where you are able to live, your reputation and your privacy.

Aggressive Defense You Can Depend On

Sexual assault charges are brought in varying degrees. If you are charged with sexual assault by use of a weapon, force or coercion, the penalties you face will be more severe. Sexual assault of a minor will also raise the stakes of your case.

We will investigate and obtain evidence that supports your case. In some cases, our diligent work can prevent charges from ever being filed. Of course, damage to your reputation is a major risk in the process. Allegations can wreak havoc on your life.

Our defense is prepared to combat false allegations, distortion of facts, witness manipulation, misinterpretation of behavior and questionable character evidence. We cross-examine witnesses with confidence and intelligently and effectively challenge all evidence brought against you.

Domestic Violence And Sexual Assault

Family members and spouses can file domestic violence charges against each other that also allege sexual assault or battery. Such allegations might stem from a divorce or custody battle. Do not trust an attorney who focuses only on family law to provide you the best defense. You need an experienced criminal defense attorney for proper and effective representation.
