In Nevada’s criminal justice system, as in much of American society, sexually-based offenses are considered particularly egregious. Sex crimes carry a stigma that goes beyond that associated with many other crimes. Prison is only the beginning. A sex crime conviction means that for the rest of your life you will need to register as a sexual offender wherever you live, and your name, address, photo, and charges will be published on the Internet for the world to see. You will face housing restrictions and limitations on the type of job you can have.
Types of Sexually-Related Crimes
- Sexual assault
- Sexual battery
- Statutory sexual seduction
- Open and gross lewdness
- Child pornography
- Lewd behavior with a minor
- Sex Crime Differences and Defenses
- Many people accused of sex crimes find that law enforcement personnel and the community as a whole often assume because you’ve been accused of a sex crime, you’re guilty. The presumption of innocence you’re entitled to often does not extend to the larger community, and your reputation may be shattered, based on an unproved accusation.
Add to that the fact that most sex crimes are committed behind closed doors; charges are often filed on no more evidence than the alleged victim’s word, providing fertile ground for false allegations. We see groundless accusations arising from contentious divorce and child custody battles, fractured relationships, and consensual sex gone wrong.
If you’ve been accused of a sex crime, or if someone has threatened to accuse you, you need to call a lawyer immediately. Defenses are available, including false allegations, lack of proof, and consent.
