Criminal Sexual Assault? First Degree?

Life in prison? For cheating on your wife? Yep! Seems a little harsh, but hey, it's Michigan. Oh, those blue states.

We cannot help but question whether the Legislature actually intended the result
we reach here today," Judge William Murphy wrote in November for a unanimous
Court of Appeals panel, "but we are curtailed by the language of the statute
from reaching any other conclusion."
he added, "any time a person engages in sexual penetration in an adulterous
relationship, he or she is guilty of CSC I," the most serious sexual assault
charge in Michigan's criminal code.

It can lead to life in prison. Wow, that seems severe.

Just a thought.
