Sex Offenses Archives

Don't hesitate to consult with a criminal defense attorney

Sex crimes are some of the most serious criminal offenses in our justice system.The people who are accused of these crimes stand to lose a lot. Their livelihoods and, indeed, their futures are on the line. Alleging such crimes against someone is also a very serious matter, and given the perverse and outrageous nature of such an alleged act, it is no surprise that sex crimes are treated so seriously.

Reform for sex offender registration is slow

Registering as a sex offender isn't just embarrassing and punishing, it also leaves the individual with little room to make improvements to his or her life. This isn't a topic that many people like to discuss because the matter of sexually-based crimes are inherently unsavory and tough to talk about. It is easier in many people's minds to just label people who are convicted of sex crimes as horrible and then never consider them again.

Dealing with the dramatic effects of false rape allegations

Being falsely accused of a crime, especially one as volatile and severe as sexual assault, can cause irreparable damage to a person's life. Under some circumstances, trying to repair this damage can be compared to trying to un-ring a bell: it simply cannot be done.

Avoiding criminal charges if you are traveling with a minor

There are more restrictions than ever when it comes to traveling domestically and internationally. Because of the increased fears and concerns over the safety of children in particular, heightened measures to investigate adults traveling with minors are quite common.

One state may eliminate felony sex crime statute of limitations

Statutes of limitations are powerful protections built into state and federal laws. These limits are set to preserve the integrity of the case and give people accused of a crime a reasonable opportunity to defend themselves. Without these time restrictions, people could make allegations from something so long ago that evidence no longer exists to support a defense.

Age: much more than just a number

Imagine you are on your computer chatting with someone you met via an online video game. You are from the same area, are the same age and seem to connect and share the same interests. The relationship grows and eventually, you both decide you want to meet and take your relationship to a physical level. Once you meet, you engage in sexual activity and the relationship seems to progress normally.

Sometimes the best defense is a weak offense

Being accused of sexual abuse or misconduct can destroy a person's life. Even before a case heads to court, the person accused can face the judgment and scrutiny of the public, an employer and even his or her loved ones. However, in the eyes of the law, you are innocent until proven guilty.

Sex offenders can't catch a break (or a Pokémon)

We have discussed the various strict and often life-altering restrictions placed on registered sex offenders numerous times on this blog, but it is worth repeating. A person convicted of a sex crime who is required to register as a sex offender will have to comply with a whole host of restrictions, from where they can live to what they can do online.

Can I plead no contest to a criminal charge?

The criminal justice system in the U.S. is far more complex and complicated than most people realize. For instance, did you know that a person accused of a crime doesn't have to plead either guilty or not guilty to the charges? A number of different pleas can be entered, including a plea of no contest.
