Sex-related crimes can hinge on several points

Facing sex-related charges is something that demands immediate action. You can't just sit around and wait to see what is going to happen before you start working on a defense. In our previous blog post, we discussed how the presence of consent can have an impact on the defense you use. That is only one of the factors that must be considered.

The matter of consent in sexual assault cases

Being accused of sexual assault puts you in the position of having to defend yourself against what might have been a consensual sexual encounter. If you are facing these charges, you have to look into all of the possible defense options that might apply. While these can vary from case to case, there are often similar themes that are shared between many cases.

Penalties for felony convictions are serious

In our previous post, we discussed how the classification of a crime has an impact on the possible sentences and other repercussions that you might face. As felonies are the most serious classification of charges, if you are facing a felony charge, you will need to determine how you are going to fight those charges.

The classification of a crime matters

When you are arrested for a crime, the charge you face will be classified as either a misdemeanor or a felony. This classification might not seem like a big deal at first glance; however, the way that it is classified can have an impact on how the case moves through the criminal justice system, as well as the effects of the case that can follow you through life.
