The Sex Crimes Defense You Need
Protecting Your Rights, Your Name And Your Future
If you have been accused of a sex crime, prison time is just one of many consequences you face.
A prison sentence will have an end, but the social stigma can follow you for the rest of your life. Sex offenders are required to register in jurisdictions where they were convicted, where they live and where they work.
Your ability to find gainful employment will also be affected. A sex crime conviction on your permanent record can disqualify you from many professions and make pre-hire background checks a nightmare.
You are scared and you have every reason to be. With so much at stake you cannot afford to work with anyone less than an experienced, proven and respected criminal trial lawyer. Contact O’Brien Hatfield Reese, PA, today for a free initial consultation.
