There are many kinds of sex crimes you could be accused of, but regardless of the crime you may or may not have committed, you deserve to have fair representation. There are many instances where good people are accused of criminal acts when the facts have become skewed. You deserve a chance to set the record straight.
For example, some common sex crimes include indecent exposure, sexual assault and rape. Indecent exposure, which is when someone sees you naked in public (this doesn’t have to be sexual in nature), could be a relatively minor crime. However, if a child sees you, then you could be accused of indecent exposure with a child, which is a more serious crime.
Sexual assault is a catch-all, and it encompasses sexual touching ranging from groping someone on the job to drugging a person and taking advantage of him or her sexually. Sexual assault charges could grow into rape charges if a victim claims that you penetrated him or her.
Not all sex crimes are easy to prove. Without witnesses or physical evidence, it can be difficult for someone to prove that you participated in a crime. False accusations can be common, and it’s important that you get a chance to speak to your attorney and defend yourself against unfair accusations.
