If you have been charged with a sex crime, your case will require a competent and aggressive attorney who is committed to protecting your rights, reputation and future. Most sex related crimes are classified as felony charges and carry with them significant penalties. Many sex offenses have a lifetime requirement of registering as a sex-offender. As a registered sex-offender, your personal information including your name, photograph, location, and details of your conviction will appear on multiple public lists and websites. Sex offender registration itself is a life sentence of strict and invasive restrictions.
Probably more than any other crime, innocent people are falsely accused of committing rape and other sex-related crimes. Alleged victims often make false accusations to conceal their own actions and decisions. Often times, allegations are based on false identity and pressure from others.
Ideally, the defense of a sex crime should begin even before you are arrested and charged. Being prepared to deal with the government and judicial system can help you avoid a wrongful conviction. If you are suspected, arrested, or charged with a sex crime, you should seek legal advice immediately. Contact Riley Law today to get the legal representation you need.
