Sex Crime Consequences in Indiana
Few crimes are punished as harshly as sex crimes in Indiana where all sex crimes in Indiana are charged as felonies. If convicted you could face:
- Up to $10,000 in fines
- A minimum of 6 months in jail
Along with the criminal penalties of incarceration and fines, you will also have to register as a sex offender for an undefined period of time. While it is up to the accuser to prove you are guilty, immediate consequences can take place that could make it hard to live your life, such as protective orders against you that could keep you away from home or a place of work.
Common Sex Crime Defense Strategies
An accusation of sexual assault can cause serious harm to your life and reputation. Even innocent people can begin to question their own integrity after a sex crime charge. Possible defense strategies could include:
- Innocence: You did not commit the crime of which you were accused. It may have been someone else, or the incident may not have occurred at all. We can examine the evidence against you for inaccuracies.
- Consent: The unfortunate truth is that some people change their minds about events later on. What may have once been a consensual act may now be characterized as rape. We can help you tell your side of the story here.
- Insanity: You may not have been in your right mind at the time of the incident, and proving so could help you have the charges against you reduced or even dropped.
