Experienced Trial Advocate to Prevent Lifetime Sex Offender Registration
The sooner that an attorney can become involved in your case, the better your opportunities are to limit penalties and defeat your charges. Attorney Patrick L. Hancock will begin an immediate investigation, review evidence presented against you, contact witnesses or alleged victims, and take every step necessary to challenge the prosecution’s case.
When a complete dismissal of your charges is not possible, attorney Patrick Hancock may be able to plea down your charge or seek counseling and rehabilitation instead of jail. That may mean avoiding the challenges associated with registering as a sex offender.
As a registered sex offender:
- You would have to notify the state when you change your address
- You may not be allowed to live in certain neighborhoods, near schools, etc.
- You may be forced to verify your information by mail or on a yearly basis
- You may not have access to your own children
- You may be forced to notify the community of your presence
Legal Advocacy Focused on Protecting Your Rights and Reputation
Law enforcement agencies are given significant leeway and access to records of sex offenders. In addition to registration as a sex offender, Congress has enacted other laws that allow law enforcement officials to release registry information to the public. The federal government also maintains a sex offender database. Once you are in the system, it can be very difficult to secure gainful employment and your personal life could suffer greatly with the stigma attached to being a registered sex offender.
