It is difficult to think of a criminal conviction that negatively impacts the rest of your life more than being labeled a sex offender. Laws requiring registration as a sex offender take a one-size-fits-all approach to penalizing individuals. The lack of gradation means the person who "exposes" himself by urinating outside during a house party suffers the same life-changing consequences in terms of stigma as a convicted child molester.
Simply put, you do not want to be required to be on a national sex offender registry. While many crimes have similar penalties, nothing compares to the social stigma that accompanies a sex crimes conviction.

It is critical to have an experienced defense attorney who can build a strong case — someone who will not be intimidated by the prosecution's aggressive tactics. At the Law Offices of Mickey Sherman in Greenwich, Connecticut, I understand how sex crime accusations are made and how to defend against them.
