The Effects Of A Sex Charge Start Immediately — You Need Skilled Representation

When it comes to sex offenses, authorities show little to no mercy for those facing charges. The phrase "innocent before proven guilty" is often overlooked.

Even if investigators have little to go on beyond the word of your accuser, the negative effects on your life begin immediately. Your job, your relationships, your reputation and your future are in jeopardy. Add to that a conviction, and you are looking at a very difficult time ahead.

The Sex Offender Registry

In fact, following a conviction, you will likely wear the label of a registered sex offender for many years to come. Your name in this database means this incident will follow you wherever you go, perhaps for the rest of your life, even after you have served your sentence. It may restrict where you can live and work, and it may even affect your child custody rights.

Due to the serious repercussions of a sex offense, few other criminal offenses warrant the dire need to hire a serious, skilled criminal defense attorney.
