Sex Crimes in Essex County

Sex crimes include all types of unlawful acts and can result in charges ranging from minor disorderly persons offenses to first degree indictable crimes. Some sex crimes, like rape or sexual assault involve force, but others, like prostitution are consensual, and some sex crimes, like lewdness or stalking, don't involve any touching, but instead involve allegations of frightening or inappropriate behavior.

No matter how true or false the allegation is, when a person is accused of a sex crime an attorney should be contacted immediately. All criminal cases are time sensitive, but sex crimes are especially so because any lapse in time can result in the unnecessary accumulation of incriminating evidence and severe reputational damage. Thus, even if you merely suspect that you may be charged with a sex crime in the future, you should notify an attorney of the potential situation so that preventative action can be taken.

Penalties & Megan's Law

A sex crime conviction can result in many different penalties depending on the charge, but anytime a person is convicted of a sex crime in New Jersey, Megan's Law will apply. In New Jersey, Megan's Law requires that anyone convicted of a sex offense must register with law enforcement, and remain registered for at least 15 years. A sex offender must inform the local police of their name, address, what they look like, other convictions, and if there is a change of address. The local police, under certain circumstances, must then notify certain individuals that the offender lives in the neighborhood. Megan's law makes it very difficult for a convicted offender to turn over a new leaf, and often times it will apply to a person for life. As an experienced New Jersey defense lawyer, I will do everything in my power to make sure that this doesn't happen to you.
