Are You Implicated in a Sex Crime?
Most people would probably consider themselves familiar with the basic concepts of what may be involved in a criminal case after all, there are entire industries devoted to crime novels, police and crime-related television shows, and detective and courtroom movies. But when the experience lands at your own front door, the reality is quite different.
For sex crime cases in particular, the mere hint of involvement or guilt can impact employment, personal relationships, and even family life. Until a case is completely resolved from mere suspicion all the way through to a jury verdict or other disposition the accused can experience a tremendous upheaval to almost every facet of their life, and the threat of punishment can be overwhelmingly stressful and daunting. The fact is, television notwithstanding, ordinary citizens are not familiar with law enforcement processes and court procedures, and they are severely handicapped by not understanding how the system works. Without the advice and help of a top-notch lawyer, they can end up forfeiting important rights or even their freedom.
