Ready To Defend You Against Sex Crimes Allegations
If you have been accused of a sex offense, you probably have many questions and concerns. Sex crime allegations are frightening for many reasons. They carry a stigma unlike any other crime and many defendants feel that they have been convicted merely by the accusation, at least in the eyes of the public. With your reputation and your freedom on the line, you need an aggressive legal defense.
At Waldo Law Firm, PLLC, we are ready to help you get through this. We have been representing clients in northern Mississippi for over 25 years. We are invested in the community surrounding our Pontotoc office, and we are invested in helping our clients, no matter the criminal charges.
The Many Forms Of Sex Offenses
Allegations of sex crimes can take many different forms. We can help you understand exactly what your charges mean and defend you against them. We often see the following types of cases:
Each offense has its own legal requirements and defenses available. We will start building your defense immediately and walk you through each step of the process. We will fight for the best possible outcome in every case.
Staying Off The Sex Offender Registry
Every state keeps a registry of those people convicted of sex offenses. In Mississippi, the registry is called the Mississippi Sex Offender Registry, and it includes names, photos and the crime the person was convicted of. The list is meant to notify neighborhoods of sex offenders living in the area.
If you are convicted of certain sex offenses, you will have to register annually and update it when you move or change jobs. Finding housing and employment can become difficult. Failing to register is itself a crime, with serious consequences.
At Waldo Law Firm, we will do everything we can to keep you off this registry. The sooner we become involved in your case, the better our chances of dismissing or reducing your charges. We are always willing to take your case to trial when that is the best option for you.
Can A Sex Crime Allegation Affect Your Education?
Unfortunately, even an allegation of a sex crime can affect your college education. Whether you are a student at Ole Miss or elsewhere in Mississippi, most colleges conduct their own investigation into these types of allegations. You should have an attorney to defend you throughout this process in order to protect your right to continue your education.
