Facing sex crime charges? Your profession could be on the line

When you are accused of a crime, your entire world can be turned upside in the blink of an eye. However, these cases can take quite some time to resolve. In between the time you are accused and the time your case comes to a close, retaining some semblance of normalcy in your life can help immensely.

Unfortunately, this can be extraordinarily difficult if and when the crime of which you have been accused is related to sexual misconduct. You may want or need to continue working if only to earn a paycheck. However, if you suffer professional penalties as a result of the allegations against you, this can be all but impossible.

Workers in certain positions and industries must have a specific license to do what they do. Just as you can lose your license for getting a DUI, you can also have that professional license suspended or revoked for being convicted of a sex-related crime. You might even be unable to work if you have been accused of sexual misconduct.

For example, if you are accused of possessing or distribution child pornography, you might be asked or forced to take time off. If you are convicted or plead guilty, you could lose your professional license altogether.

These consequences are very real possibilities if you are in any of the following industries:

  • Teaching
  • Religious leadership
  • Medical
  • Dental
  • Law enforcement
  • Child care

If you cannot work and earn a living, you cannot earn the paycheck you need to support yourself and your family. Further, you can suffer enormous personal and emotional consequences when your professional reputation is in jeopardy and you cannot do something you love.

We know that you have quite a bit at stake in these situations, not just legally but professionally as well. The attorneys at our firm are not just prepared to protect you in the courtroom; we can also work to protect you in your career and community by seeking reduced or dismissed charges and/or penalties and restrictions.
