Sex crimes are among the most severe criminal charges you can face, with an added dimension—the mere allegation that you have committed a sex crime can destroy your reputation.

Aggressive Legal Defense No Matter What Sex Charges You May Be Facing

Prosecutors are extremely aggressive when pursuing sexual offenses, and the consequences of conviction in even misdemeanor charges can be devastating. To protect your rights and your future, you need an experienced criminal defense lawyer who can fight for a fair result.
The Outcome of Your Case Can Affect the Rest of Your Life: The Sex Offender Registry
Sex crimes include both felony and misdemeanor charges. Depending on the crime you are faced with, you could be facing the possibility of spending years in prison and being ordered to pay heavy fines. In addition, a conviction could result in significant embarrassment for you among your friends, family, and your community at large.
However, one often overlooked penalty is that you will likely have to register as a sex offender if you are convicted. This can include seemingly less serious offenses such as public indecency and indecent exposure. Registering as a sex offender means your name, address, and other basic information become publicly available online.
Violent offenders are required to register for life, while other felony offenders may be able to get off the registry after 20, 10, or 5 years. Offenders must re-register every time they move and generally update their registration every year within 5 business days of their birthday. As noted above, failure to register or failure to update your information is a separate punishable offense.
Unfortunately, many defendants will accept plea agreements, not realizing they will still have to register as sex offenders. Before you do anything in your case, you should consult with a criminal defense lawyer to ensure you fully understand your choices’ ramifications and what options may otherwise be available.
The Best Defense – Get Proactive and Get Aggressive
One of the biggest mistakes defendants make when facing a sex offense charge is to assume that the truth will prevail or that their case will otherwise take care of itself. You need to get an experienced criminal defense lawyer on your side as soon as you can. The right lawyer will take immediate action to gain control of the situation and build an aggressive defense.
