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.
We know that there are some questions you probably need answered about what is going on, such as what statutes you are being charged under. You may want to discuss what happened during the incident so that you can determine what you want to do. You can walk us through what happened so that we can discuss your options with you. This could give us information that we need to determine what aspects of the prosecution’s case we need to focus on.
The penalties that are associated with these charges are considerable. You are facing time in prison, as well as having to register as a sex offender. Think about what that would mean for your life. You might have to leave your job, especially if you work with children. You may have to skip out on certain holidays, such as Halloween.
We know that all of this is a lot to take in. We want you to learn about your options, but we will need as much time as possible to work on your case. You should remain an active part of your case, so we will discuss your options with you so that you can make informed choices about your case.
