Severe Penalties You Face When Charged with a Sex Crime
If you have been charged with a sex crime in Mississippi, the possible penalties you can face upon conviction and sentencing will be severe. You need to act upfront and without hesitation in your defense to mitigate those penalties as much as possible.
Penalties you can face if convicted of a sex crime like sexual assault include:
- Prison time: Depending on the sex crime in question, you may be penalized with mandatory prison time. Felony sex crimes usually include at least one year in prison, but this amount can increase significantly.
- Steep fines: You will be ordered to pay fines to the state, which can range well into the tens of thousands of dollars for high level felonies or repeat offenses.
- Sex offender registration: With a first-time sex crime conviction of any sort, you will likely be ordered to register as a sex offender. Being on such a registry will block you from living or working in certain areas and settings. It also exposes your criminal case to the public.
- Social stigma: People convicted of a sex crime often suffer the worst punishments not from the court but from their neighbors. Social stigma follows sex crime offenders for years, if not the rest of their lives, making gainful employment, continued education, and so forth difficult.
Defense Lawyers Tenaciously Fighting for Justice
At Savant & Rich, LLC, we fight for our clients and to uphold justice as it is meant to be. Everyone is supposed to be innocent until proven guilty, and we believe that everyone is entitled to a defense, regardless of the accusations and charges they face. As your legal protectors in a difficult time, we will never judge you based on the criminal charges.
As soon as we are hired, we begin developing your defense. When necessary, we hire physicians and medical experts to review the government’s allegations, and employ investigators to gather evidence and obtain witness statements. Often times in sex crimes cases, social media and electronic communications like texts and emails are critical to use in defense. When necessary, we employ electronic and tech experts to recover any necessary evidence from social media, phone hard drives, or cloud database storage systems. Any time wasted makes it more difficult to gather critical evidence, so we spring into action at the first chance we get.
