Sex-related criminal charges come with penalties that don’t apply to other types of charges. One of the primary differences with sex-related convictions is being placed on the sex offender registry and the restrictions that can make living your life very difficult.
When you are ordered to register as a sex offender, you will have to ensure that you comply with all of the requirements. One point that can negatively affect your living arrangements is that you might have to notify people who live around you that you are a convicted sex offender. You might find that locating a rental home is difficult because of this requirement.
There is no guarantee that you won’t have to register as a sex offender if you are convicted of a sex-related crime. When you are facing this type of charge, a priority is usually minimizing the penalties that you might have to face. This can often be done by learning about all of the conditions that must be met in your case. We can help you explore these conditions and the laws that apply to your case.
Another consideration is how mandatory sentences might apply to your case. One example of this is child pornography charges, which can carry minimum prison terms.of three years. That’s a long time to be separated from family and locked up in jail.
No guarantees can be made about the outcome of a sex-related case. Instead of looking for guarantees, we work on finding the options that might help you to resolve the case that has been filed against you.
