Today we’re going to talk about the consequences of conviction of sex crimes. Sex crimes in North Carolina are wide-ranging. They can be misdemeanors or very high level felonies. With that comes punishments of fines, community service, probation, of jail, and prison time depending on the crime.
Additionally, there are a couple of things to worry about if you become convicted of a sex crime. One of which is being placed on the sex offender registry which has a minimum term of thirty years. When you were placed on the sex offender registry everyone can see it and it limits where you could work where you could live where you can go to school. You’re part of a public index that’s open to anybody that is searching.
Additionally, in some cases, the convicted person is ordered to be placed on satellite-based monitoring. During satellite based monitoring, the government is aware of your whereabouts at all times and can always track you. Yes, there is a stigma that is attached to being convicted of a sex crime, but it’s a lot more serious than that.
If you’ve been charged with a sex crime you should contact an attorney immediately. That attorney can go over your options and what to do next.
