Sex Crimes can range from indecent exposure, sexual battery, rape, child pornography, molestation and several more. Regardless of the offense, any sex crime can have a lasting impact on one’s life and reputation in the community. Punishment for these kinds of crimes can range from probation in some cases and even life in prison for some of the more serious felony sex crimes.
Besides the possibility of incarceration, many offenses require the defendant to register as a sex offender. The Jacob Wetterling Crimes against Children and Sexually Violent Offender Registration Act is a United States law that requires states to implement a sex offender registry. Under this act, states must verify the name and address of all sex offenders in the state. This is why it is important to call Parker and Pugh if you have been charged with a sex crime.
