Sex Offender Registration Defense Attorney Serving Baltimore, Annapolis and Throughout Maryland
There is no such thing as a minor sex crime in Maryland. The majority of sex crimes are subject to sex offender registration — a Draconian consequence that will follow you around for the rest of your life. Even a less serious charge such as prostitution can cause consequences ranging from profound embarrassment to divorce.
The term "sex crime" covers a surprisingly broad range of criminal charges. If you are accused of a sex crime, do not talk to police, no matter how friendly they may seem. Often, people convict themselves under manipulation by police and court officials. Law enforcement officials will attempt to get you into the police station, isolate you, scare you and get you either to confess or to provide incriminating information.
