Sex crime charges should never be taken lightly

When people think about sex crime charges, they may think about charges such as rape, child molestation, prostitution or other serious crimes. However, sex crimes are much more varied than this. They can include charges of date rape, sexting, internet solicitation of minors or lewd conduct. The possession of child pornography, pandering and the failure to register as a sex offender can also result in sex crime charges in Oregon.

People should understand the serious consequences that accompany all of these types of charges. Even if the accusations are false, people who are facing sex crime charges in Oregon can face harsh penalties. These penalties can include social repercussions and eventually jail time. These types of charges can have an immediate effect on a person's reputation, the person's employment and the person's ability to find housing.

However, everyone who is accused of sex crimes has legal rights. These rights include the right to be treated as innocent until proven guilty. This means that individuals cannot face these punishments until they are found guilty in a court of law. During this time, people have the ability to protect their rights and clear their name.
