Why You Need an Attorney for Sex Crimes
Once you have been accused of a sexual related crime, getting an attorney should not be thought of as “optional”; it is an absolute necessity.
Men and women who are facing charges of sex crimes in Virginia are “marked” even before they have had a chance to defend themselves. You could lose your job, be alienated by friends and family, and have your case publicized. You do not want to be unjustly penalized.
If convicted, your life will forever be changed. Aside from possible jail or prison time, you may have to register as a sexual offender which allows for your personal information and alleged crime to be posted online for the public. You will also have restrictions on where you can live, work, and socialize. You may be denied government benefits.
