Being charged with a sex crime – such as rape and statutory rape, indecent assault and battery, and enticing a minor – can be overwhelming. Sex crimes call for some of the harshest sentences in the criminal justice system. In addition, they can result in a whole host of collateral consequences, such as civil commitment, registration as a sex offender, GPS monitoring, and difficulty finding work and housing. An arrest alone can also often attract unwelcome attention from the public. Proper defense of such crimes requires a deep understanding of the body of law governing these offenses, experience managing media attention, and a knowledge of the forensic issues and experts needed in such cases.
