Detroit Sex Offense Attorney Meeting the Burden of Proof

Tireless defenders of your rights

Being accused of a sex crime can be a horrifying ordeal. Friends and family may abandon you, police may treat you poorly, and even the judge may harbor hostility toward you. If you have been accused of committing a sex crime in Michigan, don’t let embarrassment or public opinion stand in your way. I can help you take back your life and fight back against your accusers. With more than 20 years of experience in sex crime defense, I have the skills to protect your legal rights and the dedication to relentlessly advocate on your behalf.

Providing hope to the accused

A sex crime conviction can have a tremendous impact on your life. If convicted, you could face substantial probation or jail time. In addition, registering as a sex offender limits your job opportunities, destroys your social life and restricts where you can live. Do not let this happen to you. I help clients fight back against your accusers and aggressively defend your rights in court.

Detroit attorney dedicated to your defense

I have secured successful verdicts for clients charged with the following crimes:

  • Rape and sexual assault
  • Prostitution and solicitation
  • Domestic violence
  • Statutory rape
  • Child molestation
  • Date rape
  • Indecent exposure and “sexting”
  • Internet sex crimes
  • Internet sting operations
  • Possession of child pornography


How false accusations can occur

Often, those accused of sex crimes have no idea how or why the accusation was made. Mistaken identity is a frequent cause for false accusations. People may lie about a sex crime to seek revenge on a current or former lover, or to gain notoriety or monetary wealth at their expense. Children may also accuse a person of a sex crime, but be confused about what that implies. Investigators may elicit a false accusation from a child by accident through improper lines of questioning or exploitation of the child’s feelings. If you have questions about why you have been accused of a sex crime, contact Michael A. Rataj PC today.
