Panama City Sex Crime Lawyer

Sex Crime Allegations Can Ruin Your Future

If you have been charged with any type of sex crime, your reputation and your freedom are at risk. While you are legally presumed innocent until proven guilty, even the simple fact of being accused of committing a sexual criminal offense can expose you to severe social stigma. Further, crimes of this nature generally carry harsh penalties for a conviction, including steep fines, time in prison and a criminal record that could cause problems for the rest of your life. Don't let this happen to you! Contact Seaton Law Offices, P.A. for help today.

Defending Against Sex Crime Allegations

Even in the most serious cases, it is nearly always possible to achieve a better outcome by fighting the charges. If you take action now, we may be able to negotiate with the prosecutor for a favorable plea bargain or a reduction in the charges, or it might even be possible to exonerate you of have the charges dismissed. For example, if you have been accused of rape, we could argue that you have been mistakenly identified as the perpetrator or that you have been falsely accused.

Similarly, child pornography charges can often be defeated by demonstrating that the suspect's Fourth Amendment right was violated by a search without a warrant or that you were unaware of having downloaded illicit files to your computer. You cannot be convicted unless it is proven beyond a reasonable doubt that you committed the crime, and we will place the burden of proof on the prosecutor to clearly establish your guilt.

Sex Offender Registration in Panama City

One of the worst aspects of a sex crime conviction is that you would most likely be required to register with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement as a sex offender. The local sheriff may be required to send out flyers to notify your neighbors of your status, and you would have a profile on a publicly accessible website, including your photograph, home address, physical description and details about your conviction. There are currently more than 200 registered sex offenders in Panama City. Don't let yourself be added to this number!
