I was charged with csc4th degree attempt. My attorney did nothing to help me. I mooned some people and some kid made up a story that I did something that I did not do. This happened 13 years ago and there is nothing else on my record. I want my record cleared as this charge is a misdemeanor and I am on there for life. I hope there is somebody that can help me clear my name. My attorney basically told me to lie in court. This is really hurting my family since we have had a lot of tragedy since then. Thanks.
You are eligible for an expungement in the State of Michigan but that will not currently have an impact on your need to continue with Sex Offender Registration. Unfortunately, there is not an option for you to petition for removal from the list until you have been on it for 25 years.
If you were an adult when you committed the offense, it looks like you cannot petition to be removed from the registry for this offense. It is probably still worth contacting a MI defense attorney to discuss the situation and see if there may be some relief possible. Have a look at this site:
