Sex Offender Registry
Military Criminal Defense Attorney
Being charged with a sex crime is a very serious matter that can result in a lifelong negative impact on a person's life. Not only does a person face incarceration, fines, possible mandatory rehabilitation classes, but for many sex crimes the person will be required to register in a sex offender registry.
United States Code (U.S.C.) § 16919, requires the Attorney General to maintain a national database at the FBI that provides up to date information for the public regarding sex offenders. Anyone convicted in the country must register according to
U.S.C. § 16913, and their information will appear on the national database for all to see.
If a service member finds themselves charged with a sex crime, it is vitally important that they contact a military criminal lawyer immediately to help mount a strong defense on their behalf. Meagan F. Temple, Attorney at Law, provides the expertise needed during this crucial time. As a former prosecutor, she is well aware of the steps that law enforcement and the prosecution take to pursue a conviction. She can develop a legal strategy that will enable her to provide her clients with the effective legal strategies they need to fight their charges.
Consequences of a Sex Crimes Conviction
Since the consequences of a sex crime conviction can be extreme, avoiding them at all costs is of paramount importance. Once a person is labeled as a sex offender, it becomes very difficult to lead a normal life. Certain employment opportunities will forever be unavailable, such as becoming teaching children, law enforcement, or child care provision. Even finding housing will be difficult, as many cities limit where people who have a sex record may reside.
By retaining Attorney Temple's firm, clients could allow her to use her expertise in fighting for their rights and seeking to reduce the charges or obtain a dismissal if at all possible. Ms. Temple is prepared to employ her valuable experience as a former judge advocate and prosecutor to fight your charges from every angle.
