What To Expect When You've Been Accused Of A Sex Crime
North Carolina law makes it a felony for teachers, coaches, teacher's aides, school administrators, student teachers and school safety officers to engage in a sex act or to have sexual intercourse with a student at the same school who is more than four years younger than the employee. Violating this sex crime law is a Class G felony punishable by 10 to 13 months in prison and requiring registration as a sex offender.
You need and deserve a strong defense when false allegations of sexual misconduct involving a student challenge everything you have worked to build in your teaching or coaching career. A misinterpreted touch, email or text should not be allowed to destroy everything you have worked to create. At Roberts Law Group, or sex crimes defense lawyers represent educators accused of:
- Taking indecent liberties with a student
- Child molestation or child abuse
- Sexual assault
- Statutory rape
- Online solicitation of a student
- Possession of child pornography depicting a student, such as a sexual text or sext
If you have been accused of taking indecent liberties with a student by the student, by his or her parent or even by another student, it is likely that you will be suspended from your position pending an investigation. It does not matter whether the student consented to physical contact; North Carolina criminalizes sexual contact between students and teachers regardless of consent.
