Society views sex crimes as being among the most repugnant acts that a person can commit. Because there is such a strong stigma against these types of crimes, it is very important that you have a competent lawyer to help you if you have been charged with a sex crime. You may be completely innocent of the crime that you were charged with, but because of the strong stigma against these crimes, you may very easily be falsely convicted. Even the mere accusation of a sex crime can result in irreparable damage to your personal and professional reputation. A sex crime conviction will follow you your entire life, and may mean that you have to register as a sex offender, or that you can only live and work in certain places. Sex crimes include child abuse, child pornography, rape, indecent liberties, sexual abuse, sexual assault, indecent exposure, and sodomy/crime against nature.
