What Is Considered A Federal Sex Offense?

Different types of federal sex offenses can carry severe penalties and lifelong consequences, including:

  • Sexual assault or abuse: Nonconsensual acts leading to long prison terms and mandatory sex offender registration.
  • Sexual exploitation of a child: Child pornography-related crimes with severe prison sentences and lifelong registration.
  • Human trafficking: Coercive exploitation resulting in lengthy prison terms and significant reputational damage.
  • Sex offender registry violations: Failing to register/update, leading to further charges and incarceration.

These charges can have life-altering impacts. At the Law Office of Stephen L. Richards, we provide the strong defense needed to protect your rights and future.

How Are The Procedures For Federal Sex Crimes Different From State Level?

Sex offenses are handled differently at the federal level compared to the state level. Some key differences include:

  • Federal sex crimes are prosecuted in federal courts, while state-level offenses are tried in state courts.
  • Federal cases involve multiple agencies, like the FBI, while state-level cases are handled by local law enforcement.
  • Federal convictions generally carry harsher penalties, including longer prison sentences.
  • Federal and state sex offenders must register, but the federal registry is maintained by the FBI and accessible nationwide.

A federal sex crimes attorney from the Law Office of Stephen L. Richards will offer crucial guidance and unwavering support, protecting your rights and developing a strategic defense tailored to your case.
