A serious social stigma surrounds sex crimes committed in the United States. Because sex crime offenses are so sensitive in nature, society has a tendency to prejudge the accused and almost always assumes guilt. As a result of this stigma, the stakes are high for those who are accused or convicted of a sex crime. In fact, criminal cases involving sex crimes tend to be extremely complex and, if convicted, defendants often face harsh consequences.
If you or someone you love has been charged with a sex crime offense, you need to make sure that your legal rights are protected. Please contact us today to speak with a qualified criminal law attorney who can aggressively defend your legal rights and ensure that you are not unduly punished.
Numerous offenses fall under the category of sex crimes and are classified by “degrees of seriousness that differ from state-to-state. Sex crime offenses include, but are not limited to:
Sex crime accusations are extremely serious and the penalties are harsh in almost every state. A first-degree sex crime conviction typically carries a life-term prison sentence. Shorter jail or prison terms, community service, and other forms of punishment are also enforced.
In most states, sex crime offenders are required to register with a national sex offender database, which includes their name, a photo or personal characteristics, the nature of the crime committed, work and home addresses, and other personal information. Offenders are also prohibited from living within a designated number of miles of where children gather, including schools and bus stops.
Furthermore, sex crime trials typically receive a great deal of media attention. Even if the defendant is acquitted of the charges, the accusations themselves are embarrassing and can damage an individual’s reputation and social and personal relations.
