We are here to give you the best chance of success through careful investigation and aggressive defense.

What Do I Do if I've Been Charged with a Sex Crime?

If you've been charged with a sex crime, you need to get legal help as soon as possible. Not only will an attorney be able to help you navigate your legal options, but he or she will also be able to protect your rights.

Follow these practical tips on what to do after being charged:

  • Speak about your case to an attorney.
  • Do not post about your charges, arrest, or other events on social media.
  • Do not share details with your family or friends, as your words may be twisted by prosecution.

Ultimately, an attorney will be able to help you make decisions that are the most beneficial for your specific situation. At Elmer H. Young, Attorney at Law, we handle a range of cases and know how to best advise you.

Penalties for a Sex Crime

The consequences of a sex crime conviction depend on the exact circumstances of the offense and the alleged victim.

Depending on the circumstances, you could be facing:

  • Time in jail or prison
  • Fines
  • Restitution
  • Probation
  • Sex offender registration

Sex offender registration will follow you around for years to come. People who are required to register as a sex offender may find that they cannot keep or seek certain employment, housing opportunities, and professional licenses.

You should have a Georgia sex crime lawyer on your side who has the experience to help you through this difficult time. Contact Elmer H. Young, Attorney At Law now.
