Are you facing a sex charge?
If you have been charged with a sex crime, you are not doubt fearful of the consequences. You may have already experienced the shame and embarrassment of having the charge become known to family, friends, and others. The legal consequences can also be staggering, and having an experienced sex crimes lawyer on your side is essential. At the Law Offices of David A. Black, we can help.
Even the accusation of a sex crime can ruin someone’s reputation for life. The possibility of severe penal sentencing aside, Arizona has strict registration laws that can take away a person’s livelihood and social status in an instant. The following are some of the questions that are often asked concerning sex crimes:
What constitutes a sex crime?
Arizona law dictates specific acts that constitute sex crimes, with the consequences varying in severity. There are numerous sex crimes defined by law, including rape, indecent exposure, child pornography, prostitution and sexual assault. If you are unsure about the charges against you, contact us for a consultation.
When should I get a lawyer?
Hire an attorney as soon as possible. Good legal counsel can help you make the right decisions from the outset, and throughout each stage investigation. Your attorney will guide you during this process and help you make the best possible decisions.
Someone accused me of child molestation. What should I do?
Retain a skilled criminal lawyer immediately. An accusation does not always mean that a charge will result, and Mr. Black will act as your advocate and help you avoid serious sex charges. If charges are filed, it may be possible to have them reduced or dismissed.
Will this ever go away?
Facing a charge such as molestation or sexual assault can be devastating. Although the consequences are serious, there is hope. The way you handle the early stages of your investigation can have a big impact on your future. Contact Mr. Black today, and we can help you minimize the damage.
Does Arizona have a sex offender list?
Yes, the State of Arizona requires convicted sex offenders to register. Being listed as a sex offender can impact your life in some of the worst ways imaginable. In addition to having difficulty getting a job, you may also be unable to live wherever you please. Securing a good legal defense early could mean the difference between being on the list and living your life without that heavy burden.
