When You Are Accused of a Sex Crime, It Is Essential That You Get Legal Representation Right Away
If you are implicated in a sex-related crime, you need to recognize that not just your freedom is on the line, but your reputation, your livelihood, and your future. A conviction in a sex crime case can involve more than fines or community service many sexual criminal offenses carry long prison terms. A conviction can also require registration as a sex offender on a state maintained listing, which may stay in place for your entire life. Even without a conviction, the mere involvement in a sex crime case can affect your employment status, as well as your social standing. It is critically important that you retain a competent, dedicated, and sympathetic lawyer from the outset, who will aggressively defend your interests and make sure that your rights are adequately safeguarded.
