The Stigma of Sex Crimes

The sentence given in court is only part of the punishment for defendants charged with a sex crime. In addition to the legal penalty, there is a societal punishment, often even before a conviction in the stigma attached to sex crimes. Defendants often find they lose employment and even the support of family and friends, either before or after they are convicted in a court of law.

Types of Sex Offenses

The charges which are considered sex crimes in the state of Georgia include:

  • Rape
  • Statutory rape
  • Child molestation
  • Enticing a child for indecent purposes
  • Sexual assault/sexual battery
  • Prostitution

What are the Penalties for Conviction of Sex Crimes?

There is a broad range of penalties for sex crimes, depending on the crime and whether it is charged as a misdemeanor or a felony. Prison sentences range from year or less in jail to life in prison. Even after you are released, you will be required to register as a sex offender, which means that neighbors, employers, and law enforcement will have to be notified whenever you move to a new area. The conviction will follow you for the rest of your life.

Sex Offender Registry

The sex offender registry is an online database that has your name, age, physical characteristics, and details about your crime. Since this lasts for your lifetime, this can have a huge impact on your life. It will become increasingly difficult finding a place to work and live. That is why you need the help of an experienced sex crime attorney from Cooper, Barton & Cooper.

    "Great Litigator, Excellent Corporate Adviser"
    We have employed Devlin as our corporate counsel for several years. During that time, he has helped us to set up several subsidiaries of our primary corporation. He has also served as our litigation counsel, defending us in courts throughout Georgia. While aggressive in Court, Devlin never fails to maintain high professional standards and act as a Southern gentleman. He is quick to respond to threats to our business, and he never fails to quickly return our calls and emails, no matter the time or whatever else he may be immersed in at the time we reach out to him. We cannot more highly recommend Devlin.
