What are the Penalties for Sex Crimes?
If you have been accused of a sex crime in Rhode Island, you are most likely facing a felony charge that could put you in prison for more than a year and hit you with thousands of dollars in fines paid to the state. Upon conviction, you might even have to pay a hefty sum in restitution to your accuser. To protect yourself, your finances, and your future from devastation, you need to take legal action with even more urgency than your opposition.
Sex Offender Registry
One of the worst penalties you can receive after being convicted of a sex crime is having to become a registered sex offender. The sex offender registry is online database that has your name, age, distinguishing characteristics and details about the crime that you were convicted of. Once you are registered, it will be with you for a lifetime and this can have a huge impact on finding a place to work, live and more. That is why you need the help of an experienced sex crime attorney from The Law Office of Jason Knight.
You Should Trust in Our Providence Sex Crime Attorney
When the stakes are as high as they are in a sex crime case, you have to go all-in with a defense attorney you know you can trust. Working with an impersonal, probably-exhausted public defender is too much of a gamble.
While the details of many sex crime cases will vary depending on the circumstances, there are two things that remain true about each one. Firstly, we need to thoroughly investigate the evidence, testimonies, and personal histories of everyone involved. This investigation frequently reveals that accusations are based on exaggerations, misunderstandings, or falsified reports. Secondly, our law firm knows how to handle it with professionalism and aggressive defense strategies.
