Introduction

Introduction to sex offenses.

 

These types of offenses range from low level class b misdemeanors up the most serious felonies some of which carry life in prison. If a person is charged with any type of sex offense, they should talk with an attorney competent in this area of the law as soon as possible. Don't wait until the system progresses on your case and causes you to miss windows of opportunity that could help your case or in some situations allow the case to be dismissed or no-billed at the grand jury level. I repeat, do not wait. Call an attorney now to discuss your case, especially if you have just been charged or became aware of an impending charge.

 

Sex offenses have grave consequences, sometimes even the low level misdemeanors. For example, the class b misdemeanor of Indecent Exposure could, if a conviction for a second offense, result in you having to register as a sex offender. This would cause your picture and name to be on the internet and result in other bad consequences. The more serious charges such as aggravated sexual assault could cause you to go to prison for 99 years to life and, even if you get some type of probation, you would have to register as a sex offender for life. In some cases, you may even committed to an institution after you serve your time. In one of the most serious charges, continuous sexual abuse of child, a person cannot get probation and would be sentenced to a minimum of 25 years in the pen.

 

A fairly new sex offense which all should be aware of is on line solicitation of a minor. This is a third degree felony (2-10 years in penitentiary) or a second degree felony (2-20 years in penitentiary) and is meant to ensnare people before they can actually commit a sexual assault or some other sex offense against a child. For example, a person is on the internet and chats with someone he has been led to believe is under 17 years old. If he makes explicit sexual remarks or sends sexual pictures to this person, the police can get his address and come to his house and arrest him and confiscate his computer for evaluation; this would be third degree felony. If he makes a rendezvous and goes out to meet the minor, it is a second degree felony. In some cases, the police are accompanied by the news media and the person 's reputation is destroyed. Oddly, the "minor" does not even have to be a real minor; the "minor" can be a detective posing as a minor.

 

The point that is hopefully being driven home in this introduction is that the consequences of sex offenses are drastic and Draconian and no one should attempt to face these types of charges without an attorney that is competent in this area of the law. I again repeat, do not wait. Call an attorney now to discuss your case, especially if you have just been charged or became aware of an impending charge of this type. You can call us direct at 1-800-630-5985 at any time for a free confidential consultation. If you email us, do not put any facts connected with the case in the communication .

Our firm has and does effectively handle many cases of this type from the lowest levels to the most serious and would be glad to discuss your situation and options. Some of our results have been to get many clients no-billed in the grand jury (this usually means the end of the case), to get the sex charge changed to a non sex charge which avoids having to register as a sex offender, getting the court to place a person on probation instead of sending him to prison, getting a special type of probation which allows the case to be dismissed at a later date, not guilty verdicts in jury and bench  trials, getting the charge reduced to a misdemeanor, and other satisfactory outcomes for our clients. Our guarantee to any client is that we will do the best we can on his/her case and strive for the best outcome we can achieve. We stress being courteous and understanding with our clients. Call us at 1-800-630-5985 at any time to discuss your options.
