Sex Offenses: Rape, Molestation, Prostitution

As the term suggests, sex crimes are sexual, and generally, non-consensual. Some sexual offenses include:

  • Rape, including date rape
  • Sexual assault and/or abuse
  • Statutory rape, or sex with a minor
  • Indecent liberties with a minor
  • Molestation
  • Internet Sex Crimes
  • Sexual harassment
  • Pimping, pandering, and/or prostitution
  • Indecent exposure, lewd and lascivious conduct

Sexual crimes are the most vigorously prosecuted crimes in the United States, and North Carolina is certainly no exception. District Attorneys are under extreme pressure to ensure strict penalties for sex crimes. Because of the stigma associated with sexual offenses, defendants are often under the shadow of guilt long before the evidence has been evaluated and presented. Consequences of sexual offenses are severe. It is imperative that you seek the counsel of an experienced criminal defense attorney should you find yourself charged with a sex crime.

In addition to the social, personal consequences of being accused of a sexual offense, penalties for sex crimes can include:

  • Imprisonment
  • Steep Fines
  • Victim Restitution
  • Mandatory Rehabilitation
  • Sex Offender Registry

If you’ve been accused of a sexual offense or are under investigation, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney to help you obtain the best possible outcome in your situation. You need skilled representation, by an attorney knowledgeable in challenging evidence, negotiating with prosecutors, and working towards minimizing the penalties that will be imposed.
