Unfortunately, many people are willing to use the legal system to seek personal revenge, and allegations of sex crimes are often the result. Sex crimes are punished harshly under both Arkansas and federal law. Where law enforcement was perhaps overly dismissive of allegations involving sex crimes in decades past, today’s political climate has pushed many agencies to the other extreme, leading to a charge-first-and-investigate-later approach in many jurisdictions around the State.
Protect yourself with Lassiter & cassinelli
If convicted of virtually any sex offense in Arkansas, an individual will almost certainly be placed on the state’s sex offender registry. Registration is burdensome and very difficult, and will last at least 15 years and possibly the individual’s entire lifetime. The stakes are high when dealing with this type of case. That is why you need someone with the experience and the knowledge to get you the best result when facing an allegation of a sex crime.
