Have You Been Arrested for a Sex Offense?
Even being accused of a sex crime can be damaging to your reputation and your future, as you may have already found out if you have been arrested. Even if you believe that you are under investigation, it is critical to retain an experienced lawyer as soon as possible so every step can be taken to protect you and your constitutional rights. At the Joseph A. Fortunato Law Offices, we have been dedicated to the pursuit of justice and excellence for more than 30 years.
Megan's Law and Sex Offenses
While all crimes come with repercussions, sex crimes carry particular weight because of Megan's Law. Megan's Law is the informal name for the laws in New Jersey and elsewhere, which requires sex offender registration and community notification of a convicted sex offender's information. Because of Megan's Law, if you are convicted of a sex crime, you will not be able to escape this stigma, even after you have served your time and paid your fines. You will find it nearly impossible to get a job or a nice place to live. This is why it is critical that you choose a law firm aggressive enough to prevent you from having to face this future.
