I Have Been Charged With A Sex Offense, What Should I Do Next?
Being charged with a sex crime is a traumatic experience, and because so many factors can affect your rights, it is absolutely critical that you obtain the advice of an attorney as soon as you are implicated and before you talk to anyone else.
Important rights need to be safeguarded from the outset, or an individual accused of a sex crime can find his or her life severely disrupted. For example, in many cases, all it takes for an individual to become involved in a sex crime case is a verbal accusation. And a crime involving minors can result in Child Protective Services (CPS) interfering in family relationships, because of their wide-ranging authority over the disposition of children. Because so much is at stake, you need to have an attorney who understands every aspect of the process, and every aspect of the law, so that your rights are not illegally or unwittingly surrendered to legal authorities.
