    Default Inappropriate Sexual Touching of a Child

    My question involves child abuse or neglect in the State of: MI

    My brother touched my soon to be 5 year old niece inappropriately (between her legs but sopositly stopped when she asked him to) on the outside of her cholths (was reported to police) and I would like to know what MI law has to say about it and what he would be charged with, both worst and best possibilitys.

    Sorry my niece is 5 years old but is my soon to be niece

    That's a very broad question. He could be charged with several things, or nothing at all. Unfortunately sex offenses are difficult to successfully prosecute to begin with, and even moreso when the victim is a very small child.

    Feel free to pour through the Michigan statutes if you wish. Start here and go back and forth as you need.

    How old is your brother? Is he the father of your niece?

    My brother is 25 and no he is not. My niece is from my soon to be wife's side of our family

    At the same time I'm not sure if it makes a difference but he is suffering from severe grand mall seizures as well as bad memory loss due to his seizures I'm not sure if it will make a difference but I thought I might as well put that out there

    Your brother should discuss his case, and any potential defense based on a claim of diminished capacity, with a lawyer -- ideally, one who is very experienced with the defense of sexual abuse cases.

    From what you have told us, there's a strong chance of a second degree criminal sexual conduct charge, with lifetime registration as a sex offender.
