Sex crime charges are taken very seriously in the state of Indiana, and a conviction could lead to serious penalties that affect you for the rest of your life. Law enforcement officials do not require a great deal of evidence to make an arrest. Unfortunately, this can lead to numerous innocent individuals being accused of a crime that they did not commit. Even if you are innocent, the stigma that is attached to individuals accused of sex crimes can be devastating, making it even more important to secure experienced and knowledgeable legal assistance.
