Things can go wrong very quickly when handling any type of sex offense. That’s why you need an attorney who isn’t afraid to go to court and fight for your rights. You need an attorney who will work for you.

What are the Penalties Facing for a Sex Offense?
That kind of depends ultimately on what the crime brought against you is. Bottom line is if you have been charged with any of the crimes listed above than you need an attorney who is going to treat the case as if your life depends upon it because in some instances it really does.
Ultimately, if the person alleged to have committed sexual assault, sexual performance by a child, compelling prostitution, possession or promotion of child pornography, is found guilty than that individual will have to register for the rest of his or her life. Registering as a sex offender is a lifelong ordeal and it is very open to the public. Any time someone accused of a sexual assault, even if they were granted deferred adjudication, moves into a new neighborhood they have to register and they have a tag that follows them around. Failing to register is a crime. So, even though you have already done your time for whatever offense you were found guilty of and required to register for, you now have an additional obligation that opens you up to liability for an additional crime.
