Believe it or not, you can get charged with a sex crime for using the Internet and engaging in what you believe to be perfectly legal adult activities. The thing is, many North Carolina residents are charged with crimes that they had no idea they were committing.
The problem with getting accused with a sex crime, however, runs much deeper than simply getting into trouble with the law. Indeed, a sex crime accusation -- even though it is merely an accusation -- could trigger many people in the community to view you as guilty, even before a trial is held. It is not uncommon for those accused of sex crimes to be seen as guilty by their family, friends and employers. They could even lose their jobs prior to conviction.
In this sense, a sex crime charge can be seen as a lose-lose situation. Social blowback from a sex crime allegation is severe, and many people end up being isolated and harshly judged by the public.
