Burlington County NJ Sex Crimes Lawyer
Megan’s Law Attorney Representing Clients throughout Southern New Jersey
When you are accused of a sex crime, more than just your criminal record hangs in the balance. Your character is in question. Your reputation is on the line. Your personal relationships are in jeopardy. New Jersey prosecutes alleged sex offenders to the fullest extent of the law, imposing harsh penalties upon those convicted. In addition, New Jersey requires those convicted of certain sexual offenses to register with the State and provide personal identifying information, which is then disseminated to the public at large. Being a registered sex offender can impose a heavy burden on your life, impeding your ability to pursue employment, education, and volunteer opportunities, and stigmatizing you as a threat to the community. With so much to lose, it is absolutely imperative to protect your rights and your innocence.
