Fighting For Sex Offense Defendants
Sex offenses generally revolve around allegedly unwanted sexual contact with adults or any sexual contact at all with children. Specific charges include:
- Aggravated sexual assault
- Criminal sexual contact
- Child molestation
- Child pornography
- Child sexual assault
Many sex offense charges arise out of emotional situations where people’s stories change and accusations may not be what they seem, especially when children are involved. An experienced criminal defense lawyer in Jersey City can help you tell your side of the story. We work with a highly experienced investigator who has helped defendants make their case in many sex crime cases.
Fighting Megan’s Law Consequences
People convicted of sex offenses in New Jersey face very serious consequences. There is a separate prison just for people convicted of sex crimes, and even once you have finished your term at this prison, you can be kept there under “civil commitment” if the authorities convince a judge that you are a threat to society.
Even once you are released from jail, you will have to register as a sex offender under Megan’s Law. The level of registration required depends on the sex crime for which you were convicted.
The levels of registration requirements include registering with the police; notifying local schools of your sex offender status; notifying your neighbors; and posting your identity on the Internet, banks and post offices. Newark criminal lawyer Anthony Carbone will do everything he can to avoid these serious Megan’s Law consequences. Contact us today for a case evaluation with our Jersey City defense attorney.
