Legal Options and Rights
Learning about your rights and legal options can help you make decisions about reporting the assault, seeking a protection order, or accessing accommodations at your school or place of employment. Michigan law gives victims’ rights, access to information and other resources. You can choose whether you talk to the police or seek other protections. Some victims say that participating in the criminal process helped them regain a sense of safety and control.
