Trusted, Reputable Defense Against Sex Crime Charges
When it comes to criminal offenses, sex crimes are among some of the most serious crimes someone can be charged with. In today’s political climate, there is a significant amount of pressure on judges to hand down lengthy and harsh sentences on people who have been convicted of a sex crime.
In light of this, it is critical for anyone who has been charged with a sex crime to find experienced legal representation. At Carlson & Jones, P.A., we have built an impressive track record of providing effective legal counsel for a variety of criminal charges, including sex crimes. Our criminal defense attorneys have over 70 years of combined experience defending clients in Minnesota.
Sex Crimes Charges And Sentences Vary Widely In Severity
Sex crimes encompass a wide variety of offenses in Minnesota, including:
- Possession or distribution of child pornography
- Sexual assault or sexual battery
- Statutory rape or rape in a variety of degrees
- Sexual abuse of a minor
- Sexual corruption of a minor
By no means is this a complete list of the offenses someone could be charged with. While the differences between these charges are important, they all have serious consequences that people need to understand. The legal jargon surrounding these charges can be challenging for someone to understand. Therefore, anyone who is dealing with a sex crime should rely on an experienced attorney to put together a strong defense.
The Consequences Of A Sex Crime Conviction
While prison time and harsh financial penalties may accompany a sex crime conviction, defendants also risk being placed on the sex offender registry. People who are on this registry can have significant trouble finding a place to live or getting a job, leading to significant difficulty in multiple facets of life.
Depending on the conviction, people can be placed on the list for years – or for life. The stigma associated with being on this list can also lead to extreme social difficulty. This is why anyone facing these charges should contact an experienced attorney to handle their criminal defense.
