Charged with a Sex Offense in Oklahoma
Rape, and other Sex Offenses, are not only some of the most serious crimes that a person can be charged with, but they carry some of the most extensive and lasting consequences if convicted. Individuals convicted of a sex crime, are required to register as a sex offender, which will affect where they can live, work, and travel for the rest of their life. Beyond that, the emotional toll it will take on the person and their family is immeasurable.
Unfortunately, when it comes to allegations of Rape or other Sex Crimes, many people have a tendency to see the accused person as guilty until proven innocent. This is the opposite of how it should be. It can quickly turn into a witch-hunt without the proper legal representation. This can be very frustrating and you will want to protest. The danger is that even your words of protest and your attempts to explain may be twisted and used against you. You must be very very careful.
