Crimes Of A Sexual Nature Carry A Lasting Stigma

Last updated on September 15, 2023

Facing a sex crime charge can be embarrassing and distressing. Suddenly your personal details will become the subject of an investigation and used against you. Sex crimes carry a harsh social stigma, which is reinforced by mandatory sex offender registration. While crimes of a sexual nature are extremely serious, the charges can be based on exaggerated claims and deficient evidence.

At Robert S. Muir, Attorney at Law, I recognize the severity of sex crimes charges. Due to the emotionally charged and sensitive nature of criminal sexual allegations, you need a tenacious legal advocate. Let me put my years of experience to work for you.

Building Your Strategic Defense

I will work to build a solid defensive strategy that highlights the weaknesses of the prosecution’s case against you. When you work with me, you will get compassionate guidance without judgment or criticism. I can defend you against a range of sex crime charges, including:

  • Rape
  • Sexual assault
  • Indecent assault
  • Internet sex crimes
  • Sexting
  • Sexual abuse
  • Failure to register

Long-Standing Consequences

In Pennsylvania, sex crime penalties can range from a second-degree misdemeanor to a first-degree felony depending on the severity of the charge. Also, as touched on above, if convicted of a sex crime, you must register as a sex offender for 15 years or longer. The registry includes information about your crime, your person and your whereabouts. Registered sex offenders struggle to find employment and housing, making reintegration into society difficult.
