Fighting Sex Crime Charges in Edmonds
Depending on whether you are charged with a misdemeanor or a felony, you could be facing a sentence with terms including jail or prison, fines and probation. Sexual offenses generally carry a major stigma, and prosecuting attorneys in our area will typically pursue the toughest possible sentence. It may be possible to prove your innocence by demonstrating that you have been falsely accused of an offense such as rape or child molestation, or by establishing that there is insufficient evidence to support a conviction.
One of the worst aspects of being found guilty of a sex crime is that you would most likely be required to register as a sex offender. This would lead to your photograph being posted in a searchable online database, along with your home address and a detailed description of the alleged offense, including the victim's age and specifics about the actions you are accused to have taken. All this information would be available to neighbors, potential employers or any other interested party.
