Will I have to register as a sex offender?
Many people who are convicted of sex-related crimes are made to register as a sex offender on a publically available registry. This consequence can be devastating for a person’s life as it can prevent them from living in certain areas and could even result in them being ostracized, even if they are actually innocent. Additionally, it can result in professional consequences depending on employers. Because of the serious nature of this penalty and the dramatic way in which it can affect the rest of your life, it is important to seek skilled legal help when facing any type of sex crime.
