The evening news provides information on those accused of crimes in California every day. It seems almost impossible these days to turn on the news without hearing about allegations regarding sex crimes. Possibly, because more people are becoming aware of the issues, some newscasters seem to dwell on such allegations, regardless of the amount of evidence available to support them. As a result, the general public tends to believe that a person is guilty even before a trial. Unfortunately, a not-guilty verdict is often not enough to convince the community of a person’s innocence.
A conviction for sex crimes can have serious consequences, including jail time, rehabilitation or sex-offender registration. Because of the severity of these consequences and the treatment of those accused by the community at large, if you face such charges, you will likely need the help of an attorney with previous experience defending others accused of similar crimes.
