Lynnwood Sex Crimes Defense Attorney
When it comes to criminal charges, sex crimes are often the most serious charges that a person can face, not only because of the harsh sentences that are given to sex offenders but because they carry enormous stigma in our culture. This stigma is intensified by increased media coverage, which has occurred since the passing of Megan's Law in 1994.
The law requires anyone convicted to register on a national registry as a sex criminal. Registered sex offenders have a very difficult time fitting in with the community, and are often outcast and refused entry into jobs, neighborhoods and other public arenas.
If you have been accused of committing a sex crime, it is crucial that you take charge of this serious legal matter by seeking counsel as soon as possible. Call our firm at (425) 224-7075.

Consequences of a Sex Crime Conviction
Federal law authorizes Washington law enforcement agencies to notify the public of a sex offenders release if it is thought to enhance public safety. Individuals who are registered sex offenders undergo some form of monitoring for a specified length of time after their release, and must report to law enforcement periodically.
For many Washington residents, the worst part of being a registered sex offender is that your right to privacy and anonymity are forfeited and everyone on the community will be informed of your status as a sex offender. Not only can this negatively affect certain aspects of your social life, but it can make it difficult for you to find employment as well.
Many businesses are wary to hire registered sex offenders because they fear how their company will be viewed by the community, and they don’t want to risk losing business because of an employee’s status.
