Although you are presumed innocent until proven guilty, there can be major consequences that come with just the allegation of a sex offense. If you are ultimately convicted of these crimes, the penalties can be even more significant.
You have the ability to fight these charges and protect your freedom. An aggressive defense strategy could help you secure a fair outcome and potentially avoid a conviction at trial. Acting as your own attorney could make it harder to get this positive outcome, however.

Where these cases differ from other charges is that a conviction can land you on the sex offender registry.

There are additional consequences that come to anyone that fails to comply with these registration requirements.
There are two parties with the power to dismiss your case: the prosecutor and the judge.
