North Carolina Sex Crimes
Many different types of offenses constitute sex crimes in North Carolina. They may be charged as felonies or misdemeanors and result in either active punishment (prison) or intermediate punishment (supervised probation).
The most common North Carolina sex crimes charges include:
- Rape and statutory rape (penetration);
- Sexual offense and statutory sexual offense (no penetration);
- Sexual battery;
- Crime against nature;
- Taking indecent liberties with a child;
- Sexual exploitation of a minor;
- Solicitation of a child by computer;
- Child pornography;
- Indecent exposure;
- Solicitation of a prostitute;
- Secret peeping.
Many sexual offenses are considered Megan’s Law crimes that require that your name be placed in a sex offender registry. If the sex crime involves a minor, ranks as an aggravated offense or classifies you as a recidivist (repeat offender), then you may have satellite-based monitoring imposed on you for the rest of your life.
Our Aggressive Raleigh Sex Crime Attorneys Can Help You
At The Coolidge Law Firm, we will fight vigorously to protect your rights by challenging how the evidence against you was collected by police and prosecutors, and we’ll challenge the substance of that evidence. For instance, in many cases, sex crimes often are alleged as part of bitter divorce and child custody disputes or used as weapons in breakups between boyfriends and girlfriends. We are particularly sensitive in dealing with child witnesses.
We’ll research all legal options, including plea agreements, reduced charges, and a dismissal. We will also focus on an outcome that does not require sex offender registration or satellite-based monitoring. If a plea agreement fails to yield a fair and reasonable result, we’ll aggressively advocate on your behalf before a judge and jury.
In some cases, the prosecutor may try to subject you to satellite monitoring long after you have been convicted and served your sentence. We’ll fight for you in such proceedings.
