Sex crime charges are among the worst allegations to face due to the social stigma, long prison sentences that can apply, and especially because of the possible requirement (if convicted) of lifetime registration with the state of California as a sex offender affecting where you can live or what kind of work you do. The charge of a sex offense can have a long-lasting impact. A sex charge can affect your work eligibility and limit where you are able to travel or live.
