A Dearborn man has been charged with attempted sexual assault and fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct after he allegedly lured a woman to an abandoned home through a housecleaning ad in Canton, according to news reports.
The two met in Dearborn, where the woman who was answering the ad got into a vehicle with the man who drove her to a vacant home in Canton and forced her inside. She fought the man off and ran to a neighbor who called 911, while the alleged attacker fled. He was apprehended in Dearborn a few hours later.

Our case results speak for themselves. For instance, we have been successful in having charges against those accused of fourth-degree CSC dismissed, and obtained numerous not guilty verdicts at trial by jury. In other cases involving criminal sexual conduct, we were able to have sentences overturned for clients who were convicted, resulting in no conviction and no requirement to register as a sex offender.
We have also been successful in appealing convictions for criminal sexual conduct, having convictions overturned and the case totally dismissed. In other cases we have been able to help clients who would otherwise have been sentenced to jail or prison time by negotiating a downward departure from sentencing guidelines, resulting in probation rather than time behind bars.
