A conviction for a sexual offense has both immediate and long-term consequences. In addition to a potentially lengthy prison term, you may have to register as a sex offender, a designation that may haunt you for the rest of your life. If you are charged with a sexual offense, you need experienced legal counsel in your corner. I am a Covington sex/internet crimes defense lawyer and I will work hard to minimize the consequences of your criminal charges.

Seek Legal Representation Before Speaking With the Police
When you are arrested for a sexual offense, it may be tempting to explain your actions and hope that your problems go away. This is a big mistake. Potential penalties include: Sex offender registration - 15 years to life; sex offender designation on your driver's license; or, 25-year minimum sentence if the alleged victim is under 13 years old. Do not give the police any more information than you have to. Call me first.
