Penalties associated with sex convictions vary greatly

Sexting, rape, sexual assault and child-related sex crimes are some very serious crimes that carry hefty social penalties, as well as hefty legal penalties. The only way to ensure that you aren’t going to have to face these penalties is to be sure that you aren’t doing anything that could lead to these types of charges. For some people, mistakes they made have already led to criminal charges.

We know that facing sex-related charges is a frightening prospect. You might be unsure of what to do next. You might not understand the charges and penalties you face. You might not be sure about how to start working on your defense. We are here to help you find out about your case, learn your options and get moving on a defense.

If you have children, the effects of a sex-related conviction might have a huge impact on your life. The same is true if your job entails working with children. Think about what you would do if you weren’t able to be around children any longer. It could cost you your family and your job.

In some cases, you might have to register as a sex offender if you are convicted of a sex-related crime. That could further impact your life because of restrictions placed on sex offenders. You might find that you have great difficulty finding a job or locating housing.

We want you to realize that ignoring your charges isn’t going to make them go away. Instead, you must face them head-on by working on your defense right away.
