For most people, being accused of a crime prompts one thought: I need to call a lawyer.
That can be especially true if you’re accused of any type of sex crime.
Why Should You Call a Sex Offender Lawyer in Wisconsin?
Sex crimes are some of the most serious in Wisconsin, and to make matters worse, false accusations of sex crimes are fairly common.
You’ll probably need to talk to a sex offender lawyer if you’ve been accused of:
Why? Because these charges are extremely serious — and if you’re convicted, you’ll have to register as a sex offender, carry the stigma associated with being a sex offender, and deal with the consequences the law prescribes. In many cases, people who are found guilty of committing a sex offense end up spending time in prison, on extended probation, and paying hefty fines.
You can’t afford to wait, either. The sooner you call a sex offender lawyer, the sooner he or she will be able to develop a strategy that gets you the best possible outcome.
What Your Sex Offender Lawyer Will Do
The first step for any attorney is to talk to his or her client. Your lawyer will want to hear your version of events; at the same time, he’ll ask about the evidence the prosecution has against you and what the other party may have told the prosecutor.
Your sex offender lawyer is also going to do in-depth research on your case.
Your lawyer’s job is to show jurors and the judge that the prosecution doesn’t have enough evidence to prove that you’re guilty (remember, you’re innocent in our court system until you’re proven guilty in court).
Finally, your attorney is going to be with you every step of the way, answering your questions, explaining court procedures, and fighting hard to preserve your rights.
