Sex crimes allegations refer to some of the most brutal, violent and reprehensible criminal offenses in our culture. In the state of New Jersey, a sex crime, such as aggravated sexual assault (first or second dagree) are verya serious offenses that can lead to long-term consequences, including Megans Law Registration, Civil Committment after the completion of a sentence, and other serious consequences.
Some of the more common types of sexual allegations include:
Sexual Assault Charges are very serious criminal charges, which can subject you to the No Early Release Act (N.E.R.A.). The No Early Release Act requires Eighty Five (85%) percent of the sentence before one becomes eligible for parole. Megan’s Law (Community Registration) is also a component. Normally, after a plea to a sexual assault charge but prior to the sentence imposed, a Defendant will be evaluated by the Adult Sexual Offender Program at Avenel, NJ. The Defendant will be tiered depending on that evaluation. The tiering of a criminal defendant can affect the sentence and possibly also involve a civil commitment after the criminal sentence is completed. It is extremely important to have an experienced attorney handle these matters properly to protect your rights. We have a great deal of experience handling these cases.
The charges mentioned above, along with many more sex crimes, are all serious criminal offenses that can include jail time or possible Megan’s Law registry. Being accused or charged with a sex crime can destroy ones reputation. Even without being charged, facing criminal proceedings that come with being accused of a sex crime can ruin your family, your employment, and even your future. If you are accused of a sex crime, you need to contact an experienced attorney immediately.
