In Tennessee, a sex crime may include any unlawful sexual activity, including forced sex acts, sexual activity with minors, and offenses of a sexually deviant nature. Any sex crime is potentially disastrous to a defendant’s reputation and future. The social stigma associated with a sexual offense may remain with you for life, and you may be required to register as a sex offender, where your name and address will be available for the public to find online or through their local law enforcement station.

Although defending a client in the face of sex crime allegations is difficult, there are always options that we can consider. For example, the alleged victim may have brought charges against you for reasons of jealousy, revenge or anger. If we can uncover these motives, we may be able to bring their testimony into question. Insufficient evidence is another valuable defense strategy that may result in helping the accused avoid criminal charges altogether.
