It’s no secret that the public has a bad perception of individuals who are convicted of sex crimes against children. But what about those who are accused or charged with the crime? In the United States, all persons who are under suspicion or who are arrested for a crime are innocent until proven guilty. However, if charged with a sex crime against a child many people assume guilt.
If you are under investigation for a sex crime, it is important that you not speak to anyone about the alleged offense except your attorney. If law enforcement contacts you to schedule an interview, it is extremely important to talk to a qualified attorney before you answer any questions.
If you have been charged with a sex crime against a child, you know firsthand how harsh the public perception can be. It is essential that you hire an experienced sex crime defense attorney to fight for you at every step in your case. The consequences of a conviction will follow you for the rest of your life—even if you are charged with a third degree felony that carries a maximum prison term of 10 years and will only require you to register as a sex offender for 10 years. You will be a convicted felon for the rest of your life.
