It is not hyperbole in the least to state that a sex crimes conviction - maybe even just an accusation - can end life as you know it. We hope the answers to these frequently asked questions can help you get a grasp on your situation as well as your options for protecting yourself and your family.
Do I Need To Call A Lawyer?
Yes, as soon as possible.
Whether you have been accused, have reason to believe you are under investigation, or you have been arrested, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney fighting for you.
Failure to take action can result in consequences that will haunt you for the rest of your life, keep you away from your children, and limit your movement in your community.
Will I Have To Register As A Sex Offender?
If you are convicted of a sexually-based offense, you will be required to register as a sex offender. This will have far-reaching consequences for you, including making it next to impossible to find employment and housing, and make you a pariah in your community.
It is crucial to do everything you can - including hiring an attorney - while you still have a chance to minimize the damage and avoid this fate.
What Are The Consequences Of A Sex Crimes Conviction?
In addition to having to register as a sex offender and deal with the consequences of that, you could receive a long prison sentence. Not to mention the collateral damage that comes from having friends, loved ones, and colleagues know that you have been convicted of a sex crime.
What If The Accusations Against Me Are False?
You're not alone. People are falsely accused of sex crimes such as rape or child molestation routinely. That's what it's so important to have an attorney on your side who will make sure the burden of proof remains on the prosecution. You are innocent until proven guilty, and we will go to great lengths to protect your rights, your reputation, and your freedom.
