The Consequences of a Sex Offense Conviction are Very Serious
Sex offenses are some of the most serious crimes that result in lasting legal, social, and professional consequences. Penalties for sex crimes include probation, fines, treatment programs, life registration as a sex offender under Megan’s Law, county jail, and state prison. What’s more, accusations and convictions of sex crimes are a source of social stigma and may result in loss of employment, a ruined reputation, and exclusion from the community. If you are suspected or charged with a sexual offense, it is very important that you consult an experienced attorney who understands the implications associated with sex crimes. The earlier in the process you have a lawyer representing you, the better position you will be in should the case make it to court.
