People Convicted Of Sex Crimes Face Dangerous Jail Time
Sex crimes are extremely serious and if you have been charged with a sex crime, it is imperative that you contact an experienced criminal defense attorney immediately. If convicted of a sex crime, you may spend time in jail or prison, where convicted sex offenders are looked upon unfavorably by inmates convicted of other types of crimes. As a result, time spent in jail or prison is potentially much more dangerous than for other crimes.
Further, many sex crimes convictions make you ineligible for probation, and most sex crime convictions require registration as a sex offender. This will subject you to difficulty in finding a place to live in general and may result in restrictions against where you can reside. In addition, under California's version of Megan's Law, which is the penal code applicable to registered sex offenders, your name, address, and photograph are available to the public.

Sex Crimes Convictions Result In Lifelong Consequences
Conviction of a sex crime can result in grim, lifelong consequences for the defendant. Due to the severe penalties that attach to many sex crime charges, the importance of initiating a strong defense against the charges as soon after arrest as possible cannot be overstated. It is critical that you seek representation by an experienced, skilled criminal defense attorney. Each case is unique and will be thoroughly reviewed by an experienced sex crimes attorney, who will evaluate the facts and the evidence and advise you on the best course of action to protect your rights and minimize your exposure to the harsh penalties that attach to sex crimes.
In some situations, bitter divorces or break-ups have led ex-partners to make serious accusations that sex crimes were committed against them. Sometimes those accusations are exaggerated and sometimes they are completely false. The laws were written with great care and strength to protect victims of sex crimes, and as a result, even those falsely accused find themselves firmly in the grip of and at the mercy of the criminal justice system. It is a frightening situation, and if charged, you must defend yourself as strongly and aggressively as possible in an attempt to shield yourself from consequences which can have a devastating and permanent effect on your life.
