A Plea Bargain Can Help Reduce the Gravity of a Sentence for a Sex Crime

By March 23, 2017 No Comments

Sex crimes can carry stiff sentences, penalties and long-lasting ramifications on your quality of life as well as your reputation. In many cases, authorities are reticent to act until they have sufficient information to secure a guilty conviction. In the state of Utah, many of these crimes have minimum sentencing requirements based on the nature and severity of the sex crime charge.

If you have been arrested and charged with a sex crime, such as sexual assault, child molestation, lascivious conduct, indecent exposure, rape, statutory rape, prostitution, or distribution of illicit pornography, you need the representation of a highly respected and experienced lawyer.
