Charged with a Sex Crime? What You Need to Know
A sex crime conviction can yield very severe penalties: significant prison time, large fines, mandatory sex offender registration, and much more. Pennsylvania black letter law states that a victim's testimony can be sufficient to rest a criminal conviction. Because this "single victim" testimony is the law in Pennsylvania, the testimony of just one person, whether they are telling the truth or lying, can permanently alter a person's life. It is my belief that the highest percentage of individuals wrongly charged and wrongly convicted are in the area of sex crimes. it is vital that when you are charged with a sex crime that you hire a lawyer who has extensive experience in this area of the law.

Sex Crimes: Dos and Don'ts
- Don't talk to the police before you have spoken with an attorney. The police may try to twist your words. It is very important to understand that you cannot talk your way out of the charges.
- Don't go to the police station voluntarily. This is not a mandatory appearance.
- Do exercise your Fifth Amendment right to remain silent.
- Do remember that what you do before and after the arrest can influence the final outcome of the case.
