All of these offenses can affect an individuals freedom, reputation in the community, family life, employment, ability to live in certain locations, ability to possess firearms, and ability to travel.  Sex offender registration is a very punitive part of these types of cases that often destroy lives.  People lose the ability to parent their children and be in their family’s lives because of these type of allegations.  However, Just because an allegation has been made does not make the allegation true. Persons facing such allegations need a lawyer in their corner that has great litigation and trial experience, who is not intimidated by the Prosecution and the Courts.  The lawyer needs to be well versed in evidentiary issues particular to these types of cases such as Rape Shield, Tender Years Evidence, and Other Act Evidence.   In cases where settlement or resolution short of trial is appropriate, it is important to have a lawyer who knows how to negotiate on your behalf for a better result.  Having a great lawyer will help reduce the enormous stress, anxiety, and frustrations that naturally accompany these types of charges.  It is important to have someone defend rather than be railroaded. A public defender is not the answer.  A lawyer that does not specialize in criminal defense work is not the answer.  A lawyer who is on your side is what you need.
