Does anyone know exactly what type of offense this is:

Criminal Sexual Conduct-3rd Degree(Force Or Coercion)

Is that more of a Statutory Rape type situation?

Thanks. Still kinda confusing to me, which is why Google wasn't really much help. I guess it just means that it could mean a number of different things? I wish charges were a little more specific for things like this.

Why do you want to know?

 Yea, it seems like it could be one of a few things. I'd think that the victims would prefer to have that spectrum over something so specific made available.

Why were you looking for the information?

There is a man that lives near my house that is charged with that. I see him at the park with kids all the time, and it creeps me out. My husbands family knew the guy when he was younger, so he claims he only got statutory rape (still not ok) but I just get a really weird vibe from that guy. I have actually started leaving the park with my kids when he is there.

You can go to your local police or sheriffs station (if you live in the county) and ask them for the list of people in your area who are offenders. If you know for a FACT that this guy was charged for that stuff and you are concerned, talk to someone about seeing him at the park. He may be violating his release.

 

That being said, my sperm donor is a sex offender because he likes em about 17. He was convicted for statutory rape, and he would ALSO be violating his release. So... yeah. Go talk to the police or sheriffs dept.
