Get legal help: Sex crimes carry immense penalties

Sexually based crimes are inherently emotional crimes that will draw a lot of anger and outrage from the public, or anyone from the outside looking in. They will often see the headlines and not read anything beyond that, making a determination about the alleged perpetrator's guilt without knowing the details of the case or the possible extenuating circumstances of the case.

Now, we aren't saying every case has prosecutorial discrepancies, or issues with the evidence. But there are certainly plenty of details to comb over in any sex crime, and there have been cases where the accused was either wrongfully accused or the case against him or her wasn't as strong as it may have seemed.

People who are convicted of a sex crime will be placed on a sex offender registry, making it very difficult for them to reincorporate with public life. Being on that registry will limit their ability to live in suitable areas and it will also immediately ostracize them -- making it difficult for them to develop normal relationships and friendships with people. We say this to make the stakes of a sex crime case very clear. Those who are accused stand to lose a lot, and their lives are unlikely to ever be the same again -- and this is why a criminal defense attorney is imperative in cases like these.

At the Law Offices of James M. Burns, we have experience handling sex crime cases and representing those who are accused of very serious offenses.
