What Sex Crimes Are Charged Federally?

Any sex crime that involves the transmission or distribution of child pornography through the media, whether by mail, internet, cell phone, courier or other means, or across state lines by any form of transportation will involve the federal government and all of its resources. Crimes involving human trafficking are also charged federally.

If I Am Arrested for a Sex Crime What Are My Rights?

You always have the right to remain silent until you give it up. You are strongly advised to consult with a qualified attorney first. If you decide to answer questions you should realize that what you say can be used against you, even a joke that you make. You can stop answering questions at any time and ask for an attorney.

You have the right to have an attorney present when answering questions and can consult with your attorney before answering any question. You are strongly advised to consult competent legal counsel before you decide to break silence.

Do I Need an Attorney if I Suspect I Am Being Investigated for a Sex Crime but I Haven’t Been Arrested?

Before charges are actually decided upon a skilled Miami sex crime lawyer could possibly provide facts that may be overlooked by investigators which can change the course of an investigation or get it dropped or which may result in a less serious charge being filed. In many cases early intervention by an experienced sex crime defense attorney can lead to a better case outcome.

Can a Person Who Has Been Convicted of a Sex Crime Work With Children?

This entirely depends upon the crime for which the person was convicted. The best thing to do is ask your probation officer or experienced legal counsel. Those who have been convicted of a federal sex crime are going to be facing very severe repercussions. Never proceed without skilled legal representation from our firm if you are facing federal sex crime charges. Many sex crimes charged in federal court can lead to decades in prison. Those involving children can be punishable by life in prison for certain offenses.

Where Does a Sex Offender Register?

A person who is still on probation or parole communicates with the Department of Corrections otherwise registration is done at a Sheriff's Office.

Can I Represent Myself if I Am Charged With a Sex Crime?

An individual always has the right to speak and act in his own defense. A prosecutor goes to trial frequently, understands the law, the court system , rules of evidence and court procedures and has the resources of the state or federal government to call upon to support their case.

Representing yourself or having an inexperienced defense lawyer is dangerous in any such case. Being represented by an experienced sex crime lawyer who is also a highly skilled litigator is a considerable advantage when facing the possibility of a conviction which could drastically affect your future.
