One of the most challenging types of charges to fight are Georgia sex crimes. Sex crimes are emotionally charged and can come with a lifelong blemish on your reputation. After a sex crime conviction, you must register as a sex offender in any state you live in thereafter. Being on this registry can affect where you live, work, and socialize. This is one of the most serious crimes you can be charged with in the State of Georgia, and it is important to hire an experienced Georgia criminal defense attorney to defend you.
The charge of Georgia Sex Crime is wide and varied. The following is just an example of the types of crimes that fall under this category:
Depending on the charge, the penalties for these crimes can range from probation to lifetime imprisonment.
Computer records and DNA evidence have increased the challenge of defending sex crimes, but the existence of either one does not have to spell disaster. DNA implies (not proves) that there was contact between two people, but does not necessarily state that the contact was the result of a crime.
