No criminal acts have as much stigma attached to them as those broadly
referred to as "sex crimes" and they require an experienced
and skilled attorney. Many people consider murder to be more defendable
than child molestation or rape. The government requires many people convicted
of these charges to submit to registry as a sex offender.
Once on the registry, people can experience problems finding employment
and housing, as these places will need to be informed of sex offender
status. And these problems all occur after already serving probation or
a jail sentence. The consequences of being charged with a sex crime are
devastating. Even people who are not convicted can be socially ostracized
when friends and family learn about the charges.
There are a number of charges that can be considered "sex crimes"
- Child molestation
- Sexual assault
- Possession of child pornography
- Sex offender registration violations
- Statutory rape
- Lewd behavior
Unfortunately, the subject of sex crimes are so taboo that it is hard to
even find an unbiased jury. A good
criminal defense attorney will not only need to fight your charges, but remind the jury
that you are innocent until the prosecution can prove that you are guilty,
not the other way around. In addition, your lawyer should help keep your
trial out of the public eye to help save your reputation from getting
tarnished by rumors that will rarely stop, even if you’re found
innocent. That is why a skilled trial lawyer will not only work to fight
your charges, but also work to keep your charges out of the public eye.
