Michigan Sex Offender Registry Removal Attorney

Are you eligible for removal or reduction?

There are 4 different cases where you will be allowed to petition a court for either a removal from the Sex Offenders Registration Act (SORA) list, or a reduction in the time that you are required to register. They are:

“Romeo and Juliet”

Statutory rape occurs when one or both parties involved in a sex act are under the legal age of consent in Michigan, which is 16-years-of-age. Michigan law states that a person under the age of 16 years is legally incompetent and cannot consent to sex. Because of this, if an older male teenager has sex with a girl below the age of 16 and the girl’s parents press charges, he can be convicted as a sex offender. It does not matter if the girl said “yes”, Michigan law states any sex act with a girl below the age of 16 in Michigan is illegal. The new Romeo and Juliet amendment now makes it possible for minors convicted of statutory rape to be removed from the SORA list. This is a major breakthrough as it will allow convicted sex offenders – who were otherwise innocent adolescents consenting to sex – to be completely removed from list for life.

The sex offender must appeal to the court for removal and they must qualify for a hearing by meeting these requirements:

If the above qualifications for the petition are met, the defendant may be granted a hearing. Keep in mind that just because a hearing is scheduled, this does not grant automatic removal from the list.

The court will consider all of the following when determining whether the petition for sex offender registry removal will be granted:

Tier I Offenders
