Sex Offender Registration Can Be a Life Sentence
Raleigh, North Carolina, Sex Crimes Defense Lawyer
For many people charged with a sex crime in North Carolina, the consequences of sex offender registration are more severe than the actual sentence. Registered sex offenders face social stigma and penalties that extend well beyond time in jail, probation, fines and community service. Sex offender registration can mean that you lose job opportunities, access to government programs and your right to live where you want to.
You can't afford to have your name placed on the sex offender registry.
As a former prosecutor in three North Carolina counties, attorney Patrick Roberts understands the impact of sex offender registration. Many prosecutors care more about getting your name on the list than they do about any jail time you may serve. If you have been charged with a sex offense, particularly an offense against a child or minor, you will need aggressive, experienced criminal defense representation that focuses on fighting your charges.
