A conviction of a sex crime in Arizona can lead to jail time, fines and the possibility of having to register publicly as a sex offender. If you have been accused of a sex crime, you need to seek immediate assistance from an experienced Phoenix sex crime defense lawyer from Witson Law.
The effects of having a sex crime on your criminal record, especially if it is a felony, can follow you for the rest of your life. It can make it near impossible for you to obtain employment that pays more than minimum wage or to get any type of professional license. Additionally, you will have to register as a sex offender, which allows your personal information and your conviction to become public knowledge. This can make it difficult for you to find employment or housing. Even if you are only required to be registered for a certain number of years, the online database of sex offenders really never goes away, and you can be left with the stigma of being a sex offender for the rest of your life.
