After being accused, it is crucial that you do not discuss your situation
with anyone except your attorney. Anything you say to the police, the
media, the victim’s families, or any witnesses to the alleged act
can and will be used against you in court.
Penalties for Conviction
A conviction of a sex crime can carry a myriad of harsh legal penalties
and will vary in severity depending on the specific charges. Sex crimes
such as predatory sexual assault against a child, a Class A violent felony,
can potentially carry a sentence of life imprisonment upon conviction.
On the other hand, sexual abuse in the third degree, which is charged
as a Class B misdemeanor, can carry a penalty of a maximum of three months
in jail. In addition to jail time, a conviction will likely bring expensive
fines, community service, probation, and prevent a person from seeking
employment in certain fields.
Regardless of the charge, every sex crime is a serious offense and is sure
to be prosecuted with extreme tenacity. If you are facing sex crime charges,
it is imperative you retain the services of a powerful criminal defense
attorney who can match the intensity of the prosecution and maximize your
chances of securing a desirable outcome.
