In People v. Davis, the Michigan Court of Appeals held that the victim’s biological mother was properly included under the term “family” for purposes of OV 5, despite the fact that the mother had given the victim up for adoption at a very young age. OV 5 directs the court to score 15 points if the crime results in serious psychological injury to a victim’s family. The trial court scored 15 points for OV 5 after considering a victim impact statement from the victim’s biological mother. The defendant appealed, arguing that the victim’s biological mother should not have been considered part of the victim’s “family” for purposes of the OV 5 because the victim was adopted as a child. The Court of Appeals disagreed, and concluded that the victim’s biological mother was a member of the victim’s family for purposes of OV 5 because the biological mother fell under the ordinary and generally accepted meaning of the term “family. The Court reasoned that there was no evidence that the legislature intended to define “family” narrowly.
