Working To Protect Your Rights And Reputation In Federal Sex Offense Cases
The penalties for a conviction on federal sex crime charges can be substantially more severe than charges for a similar crime at the state level. You will almost certainly be looking at mandatory jail time and a permanent place on the national sex offender registry. You could also be required to pay fines and serve a lengthy probation term.
Beyond the criminal penalties involved with these cases, the damage to your reputation can be even more harmful. Having an arrest for any federal crime on your record will be a red flag for anyone with reason to run a background check on you. When the arrest is for a federal sex crime, however, employers, landlords, lenders and others often choose to avoid any association with you.
