Sex Crimes Cases Are Different From Other Criminal Matters
Facing any criminal charge can have serious and lasting consequences for your life and the lives of those you love. This is especially true when you’re charged with a sex-related offense. These crimes are intensely personal, and there are many factors to consider, including:
- Even reduced charges can have significant consequences. Even if you have your charges reduced or are offered a plea deal, it is important to understand that pleading guilty to a lesser offense may still require you to register as a sex offender. The consequences are incredibly serious, and every legal option should be fully examined before moving forward.
- The social stigma can be difficult to handle. Unfortunately, the social stigma attached to registered sex offenders assures that you will face problems in your personal life, career, and even within your faith community. An experienced attorney can help reduce that effect on your life by working for the best possible legal outcome.
- These cases require a sophisticated defense. Sex crime cases can involve many complicated and detailed issues, both legally and personally. Using his experience as former prosecutor, attorney Lee F. Berlin can anticipate what is to come and be prepared to fully address any matter that may arise.
