Any kind of sex crime charge in the state of Alabama is a very serious situation and you should contact a qualified defense attorney right away. If convicted of a sex crime, you can face punishments such as significant jail time, large fines, rehabilitation programs, and having to register as a sex offender. Being a registered sex offender will stick with you far beyond any jail term you serve, and will make the rest of your life difficult for a variety of reasons. Sex offender registries are public record so future acquaintances, neighbors, employers, and more will all be able to view your past. It is obviously very important that you defend yourself against these charges to the fullest extend in order to try and avoid the damaging consequences.
Some examples of possible sex crimes charges in Alabama include –
• Sexual Assault
• Child Pornography (possession or distribution)
• Solicitation of a minor
Depending on the severity and specifics of the charges, sex crimes are often brought as a felony offense. Any felony conviction will come along with mandatory jail time and the likely requirement to register as a sex offender. Just because you have been charged does not mean you will be found to be guilty.
