The crimes that carry the most stigma and consequences today are crimes involving sex. Just an accusation that you committed a sex crime can impact the rest of your life. While the charges are extremely serious, they are often based on the testimony of one or two people with little other forensic evidence. Many times, the person accused of a sex crime has had no prior dealings with the criminal justice system. There is sometimes DNA and other scientific evidence. It is very important to have someone analyze and investigate the methods taken to get the evidence, the procedures used to test the evidence, and to investigate the person or people interpreting the evidence.

Most importantly, if asked to speak to a sex crimes detective, immediately seek the advice of a lawyer.

The penalties can be severe and include jail time or life in prison as a mandatory sentence, registration as a sex offender, and sex offender probation. You can fight to protect your rights.
