Murrieta Sex Crime Lawyer
Crimes of a Sexual Nature
Sex crimes are taken very seriously because they more often than not involve force or sexual conduct with a minor. If you have been accused of a sex crime or are being investigated for a sex crime, now is the time to involve a criminal defense attorney. Sex offenders have heavy penalties to face, from fines and jail time to life as a registered sex offender. Indecent exposure, rape, molestation, unlawful intercourse with a minor, prostitution, child pornography, child sexual abuse and sexual assault, among many others, can all be considered sex crimes.
Under California Penal Code 290, if you are convicted of a sex crime, you will have to register as a sex offender for the rest of your life. Private information such as your full name and home address will be made public for anyone to view. Failure to register as a sex offender after a conviction of a sexual crime can result in up to a year in jail and three years in state prison if you are a repeat offender.
I Am Being Investigated. Now what?
Almost 95% of all people being investigated for a sex crime are first time offenders. You are always innocent until proven guilty! You have Miranda Right's that you are allowed to fully exercise and we encourage you to do just that. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.
You do not need to speak with the police without a lawyer. An experienced and professional criminal defense attorney can greatly benefit your case. If you are being investigated for any sexual act, it is important that you hire a qualified Murrieta sex crime attorney immediately.
