No arrest can instantly tarnish your reputation and ruin your life more than a sex crime. Even if you are innocent, the arrest itself can stick with you. Therefore, if you are facing an arrest or you have been arrested, you need to fight for your reputation and your life.
With these types of crimes, you need an attorney that understands the consequences of a conviction and has the ability to expunge your arrest record after your charges are vacated.
Sex Crimes Convictions Stay with You for Life
Being charged with a sex crime is bad enough, but if you are convicted, that charge will haunt you the rest of your life. Depending on the severity of the charge, the courts may require you to register as a sex offender in the state as well as within the national database. This means no matter where you go, people will know you were convicted of a sex crime.
Any type of sex crime is a serious charge, including:
- Rape or Sexual Assault
- Date Rape
- Internet Solicitation
- Solicitation of a Minor
- Solicitation of a Prostitute
- Sexual Assault on a Child
- Indecent Exposure
Being Arrested Will Do Damage
If you are arrested for a sex crime and later released, that arrest stays on your record. That means if a potential employer or even a landlord does a criminal background check in the future, they will see that you were arrested for a sex crime.
How You Can Defend Yourself
You need ample representation in these types of case, and you cannot risk putting your life in the hands of the public defender. Instead, you need to hire an experienced sex crimes attorney that will aggressively examine and represent your case.
Whether you are guilty or innocent, these types of charges carry lifelong consequences, and in the state of Florida, you could face severe punishments.
If your case is dismissed, you may qualify for an expungement. This will remove the sex crime arrest from your record and help return your name to good standing.
