Fewer crimes carry potential for such public ire as sex crimes do. The consequences that an allegation can bring, regardless of its incredulity or falseness, include having your name dragged through the mud before a trial even begins. It is therefore of the utmost importance, should you face any sort of federal sex crime charge, to remain silent and make immediate contact us for help. Your dignity and freedom rest firmly upon a successful legal endeavor.
Sex crimes can involve various illegal activities, such as rape, sexual assault, possession , manufacture, or distribution of child pornography, statutory rape, incest, and pedophilia. These crimes are considered even more serious if they involve the threat of force or infliction of injury. A federal sex crime is differentiated from a state-prosecuted offense by the transmission of material or acts committed over the internet or state lines. Many of these offenses can be prosecuted under the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act, legislation passed by Congress in 2006, which expanded federal sex crimes laws and formed a national sex offender registry. A conviction on such charges can bring some of the severest punishments possible, and even after one’s time is served, the difficulties that a person will face due to mandatory registration and tracking requirements can be immense.
