Facing criminal charges related to a crime of sex can be one of the most destructive offenses. After an arrest takes place, friends and coworkers will begin to question what types of charges the defendant is facing. If they find out that charges related to sexual battery, rape, date rape or statutory rape are the ones that their friend has been accused of, they will begin to question their friendship. An employer may wish to terminate employment for an individual if they find out that they are facing sex crime charges for fear of a future incident, even if the person has not yet been convicted. As such, any person that is facing charges for any sex-related crime is strongly advised to talk to an attorney.
A sex crime conviction may result in any of a number of penalties, which vary greatly depending upon numerous factors such as the severity of the crime committed, whether a child was involved, whether violence, threats or force were used and whether the defendant has any prior criminal convictions on their record.
State and Federal laws take strong stances against individuals charged with sexual related offenses. The penalties for a conviction of a sex offense are incredibly high. For someone convicted of child molestation, there is no opportunity for parole or probation. Many sex offenses also require the offender to be listed on the sex offender registry for at least 10 years. With the Internet, this essentially amounts to public branding as a sex offender.
