Sex Crimes

Sex crimes are particularly troublesome because of the negative social stigma that is attached to even being charged, let alone convicted, of such an offense.  See e.g., The Stigmatization of Individuals Convicted of Sex Offenses: Labeling Theory and the Sex Offender Registry.  Aside from a possible prison sentence, anyone who is charged with a sex crime should take the matter extremely seriously because of the lifelong and collateral consequences that can result from a sex offense conviction.  See e.g., No longer a registered sex offender, but the stigma remains.  If you are charged with a sex crime in Baltimore County, get help from an experienced criminal defense attorney by contacting our office today for a free consultation to discuss how to avoid a conviction or minimize the consequences of a possible conviction.
