Once you are convicted of a sex crime, you must register with the Alabama Sex Offender Registry. Under this registry, it is your responsibility to report your place of residence and employment to local law enforcement, and you must update this information on a yearly basis. At Mark Bishop Turner, Attorney at Law, we know the consequences of a sex crime conviction and can work hard to gather evidence and build your case to seek a favorable outcome.
Registering as a sex offender is not the only result of a conviction. Jail time, probation, community service, and rehabilitation therapy programs may also be included in your sentencing. Once you serve your time, however, the label of a sex offender may follow you for the rest of your life.
Most sex crimes involve the lack of consent of one party. This can be due to mental incapacitation or physical helplessness resulting from date rape drugs or other factors. For a variety of situations, excluding sex crimes involving children, our Birmingham criminal defense attorney can investigate the incident and provide thorough representation for your case.
