Sex Crime Legal Consequences and Megan's Law
Since the passing of Megan's Law, people who have been charged with sex crimes involving a minor (person below the legal age of consent) have been aggressively prosecuted by law enforcement and California District Attorneys. Of all crimes, sex crimes tend to be the most vigorously investigated. Any person who is charged with or accused of a sex crime faces serious legal penalties such as imprisonment, restitution, fines, probation, and court ordered treatment. Additionally, people who are charged with sex crimes must deal with personal bias from family, friends, neighbors, peers, and society as a whole.
If you have been charged with or accused of a sex crime, you need to retain the services of a qualified criminal defense attorney immediately. Without the aid of a skilled sex crimes attorney, your rights may be violated during investigations, or you may make critical errors that could negatively impact your case outcome.
