Sex Crimes


Due to the nature of sex crimes, many in the public jump to conclusions about a defendant’s guilt before a single piece of evidence has been formally presented. If you are accused of a sexual offense, you face long-term damage to your reputation, in addition to lengthy prison sentences. Sex crimes are especially damaging, as after you have served your sentence, you will be required to register as a sex offender. Placement on the sex offender registry will dictate where you can live and where you can work. In addition, your name and address will be placed in an online database. With everything that is at stake, an aggressive criminal defense lawyer is your best chance to preserve your freedom.
