Status as a Registered Sex Offender Is Serious. Get the Help You Need.
Sexual assault and rape are serious crimes. False allegations of these crimes are almost equally serious. Misunderstandings or poor judgment from both parties can instigate a lifetime of consequences.
Victim testimonies, witness statements and DNA forensic evidence form a ruinous combination; potentially labeling individuals who face allegations of date rape as lifetime registered sex offenders. Despite the complicated details of your case, the stigma associated with status as a sex offender could require you to notify your neighbors of your criminal record. Your employment opportunities could be limited, and, in general, your future is at stake.
By contacting a skilled attorney who is ever committed to protecting your rights, you stand a better chance of having your future protected.
