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.
