Frequently Asked Questions

  • What if I thought it was consensual?

    Answer:

    Whether you were accused of rape, statutory rape, or sexual assault, there can be a lot of “he said, she said” issues in these types of cases. Because consent is a very popular dialogue in the current social justice setting, it is important you speak with a lawyer who understands what the law defines as consent or the act of lawfully giving consent.

  • Should I take the offered plea bargain?

    Answer:

    Because every case is different and requires a careful examination of all circumstantial issues involved in the case, we would highly advise that you speak with an attorney before agreeing to any type of deal. Though you may think you are doing yourself a favor by complying with police officers or prosecutors, you could actually be jeopardizing your rights and your freedoms. We can assess your case so you fully understand if a plea bargain is in your best interests and if the consequences match the nature of the crime.

  • Will I have to have to register as a sex offender?

    Answer:

    If you have been convicted of a sex crime in your state, you will more than likely have to register with your local law enforcement agency. Your registration will most likely have to take place immediately after your release from jail or custody. If the court required that you register, they will notify the agency that will monitor your compliance with the laws. Courts will also require that you update your information every year and report any recent moves or other events such as employment changes.

  • Can a sex crime be expunged from my record?

    Answer:

    In some cases, a sexual offense can be sealed from a criminal record. Because expunging (or sealing) a record can be a very complex matter, we encourage you to speak with our attorney as soon as possible. We can assess your current situation to determine if the nature of your offense qualifies for expungement so it can be removed from public view.
