Accusation of sex crime necessitates defense for the accused

When you hear the phrase "sex crimes," what do you think of? If we had to guess, you are probably picturing a person who is a "monster" -- someone who did a terrible thing and deserves to be punished for the rest of his or her life as a result of the offense he or she committed. And there are certainly people out there who are like that. But there are also many people out there who have been accused and/or convicted of a sex crime that are by no means "monsters."

There is a lot of nuance to the penalties attached to sex crimes, just as there is a lot of variety in terms of the types of sex crimes that can be committed. What is not in question is the terrible nature of sex crimes -- but the fact that everyone is treated like the worst sex crime offender ever when they are accused, even if they simply don't fit this description.

For example, it is possible for someone to be convicted of a sex crime for public urination. Is public urination a stupid act? Yes. Should the person convicted of this feel silly about it? Yes. But should that individual be branded for life as a result of such a stupid crime? That's where things get hazy.

People who are accused of sex crimes, regardless of the context, need legal representation as soon as possible. At the Law Offices of Jess C. Bedore, we have the experience to help people in this position, and we will do everything we can to help you get past this unfortunate chapter in your life.
