Chicago Sex Crimes Defense Lawyers
There are few other crimes that are prosecuted more severely than sex offenses. If those offenses involve children or handicapped individuals the penalties can be even more harsh. Those accused of sex offenses are portrayed as automatically guilty and not deserving of a fair trial or constitutional protections. If you are charged with a sex offense you need to be represented by an experienced sex crime defense attorney.
Oftentimes, accusers in sexual offense cases are disabled, mentally ill and sometimes motivated by goals other than protecting themselves or others. Because of the sensitive nature of sex crimes, defendants, whether they are teachers wrongfully accused of sexual offenses against students, family members, neighbors or others, are falsely accused. Prosecutors and police take victims words as the truth and bring devastating charges against the accused. Even if the case is ultimately dismissed, the charges alone can cause the loss of a job, social stigma, and mental and physical stress.
The consequences of a sex offense conviction can lead to prison and sex offender registration. Sex offender registration can be for ten (10) years or for an individual’s lifetime. This information is public and will be available to anyone who comes into contact with the convicted individual.
