There are many charges that fall under this category.
- There is first degree rape, second degree rape, and statutory rape. There is also first, second, third, and fourth degree sex offense.
- If a minor is in your care or custody (such as a parent, teacher, tutor, or babysitter) than the charge is child abuse.
- There can also be the charge of possession and/or distribution of child pornography.
There charges can be brought in state court or federal court.
All these charges demand the skills of an experienced attorney. I have experience in cross examining a S.A.F.E. nurse, knowledge of DNA evidence, to name a few examples. I also attend continuing education seminars to stay in tune with the latest technology and charging case law.
A conviction of a sex offense crime can lead to being required to register as a sex offender. It can also affect professional licensing.
