Sex Crimes Charges in Scottsdale and Phoenix
The Consequences of a Sex Crimes Conviction are Especially Severe
Individuals who are convicted of sex crimes are regarded with an almost instinctive revulsion by many people that goes far beyond any other type of crime. Do not underestimate the permanent and almost complete devastation that a sex crimes charge can have on your reputation. Most felony crimes can have collateral consequences if you are convicted. However, the consequences of a sex crimes conviction are especially severe.
For example, if you are convicted then you may be required to register as a sex offender. The national registry of convicted sex offenders is publicly available. This loss of privacy can mean that where you live, what jobs you have, whether you can go back to school, and where you travel are all extremely limited. You may feel -- and rightly so -- that you are being monitored and judged by others every day for the rest of your life. And, of course, you are still subject to the “normal” consequences of a criminal conviction, including fines and a jail or prison sentence. Possible sex crimes charges in Arizona include:
Failure to register
Pimping and pandering
And many more. Because society regards sex criminals as extremely dangerous and unstable individuals, law enforcement and prosecutors tend to be extremely proactive and aggressive when pursuing these charges.
