An arrest for Sexual Assault Against a Child, or Adult, can come with serious potential consequences. A conviction for a sex crime in Nashville or Middle Tennessee can impact child custody, employment opportunities, housing options, federal assistance, and may even require registry as a sex offender.
The Tennessee criminal justice system is intended to protect our communities, but it’s not perfect. Exaggerated or false charges of Sexual Assault can send an innocent person to prison for lengthy periods of time and seriously affect their future. When subjectivity becomes involved in a case, objectivity can easily go out the door. The judge or jury may unfortunately be swayed by emotional evidence against your innocence, especially if you do not have an experienced sex crimes attorney on your team.
