Sex crimes are perhaps the most embarrassing crimes which a person can be accused, and generally carry long prison sentences. If you have been accused of a sex crime, you absolutely need a compassionate, understanding, qualified criminal defense attorney to provide a competent criminal defense on your behalf! A unique characteristic of sex crimes is that anyone can make a sexually based complaint against someone else anytime, without any evidence whatsoever; their word alone is enough to charge someone with a sex offense. Frequently, publicity follows these sex crime arrests and often damages a person’s reputation permanently!
There are a multitude of sex related offenses in Tennessee. Sex crimes can be broken down into the following general categories:
Other than prostitution and soliciting prostitution, most sex related offenses are felonies in Tennessee with exposure to long prison sentences. In sex offenses, a person convicted of many sex offenses are labeled a sex offender, which often requires lifetime registration,supervision, and monitoring. Sex offender monitoring forces a convicted sex offender to register with local authorities wherever you go in the future, and this information is placed on public records for anyone to find.
Most sex offenders are required to register on the Sex Offender Registry. The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) maintains the Sex Offender Registry in Tennessee. To look up and find someone on the Sex Offender Registry, click here.
