What is a Sexual Assault?
Sexual assault or Rape is forcing or coercing an individual to engage in ANY non-consensual sexual contact or sexual penetration. In Michigan, the law regarding sexual assault is called the Criminal Sexual Conduct (CSC) Act. It is gender neutral and includes marital, stranger, date, acquaintance, and child sexual assault.
There are four degrees of CSC in Michigan.
Criminal sexual conduct does not require a witness other than the victim.
