The state of Michigan defines rape as forcing or coercing an individual to engage in any non-consensual sexual act or penetration. While this can include a large variety of situations, over 80% of rapes are between individuals who are acquaintances, and more than 50% happen on dates. These situations can be highly complex and subjective, requiring the honed knowledge of the associates at Gentry and Nalley.
Prostitution is the act of engaging in sexual activity for pay. Due to the nature of choice in both parties, Michigan law does not define prostitution. In many states, it has come to be known as a “victimless crime,” but can still have dire effects on the accused. Gentry Nalley can be trusted to untangle the complicated web of accusation, intentions and actions that are involved with accusations of soliciting and providing prostitution.
