Fairfax/Manassas Criminal & Personal Injury Blog

For a person in Fairfax who is confronted with a sexual assault charge, it is not simply a matter of the charges and the penalties that can cause a problem for them in their lives. Sex offenses are viewed with disdain by the public and can lead to long-term difficulty for a person who is accused of them, let alone convicted. Those who have been charged need to know what they are up against from the time they are arrested all the way through to the trial and protect themselves with a sound legal defense.

Two allegations of sexual assault resulted in the arrest of a 31-year-old man. The man does not have a current address and is believed to have found his victims online. He convinced them to meet him at local hotels and is said to have committed sexual assault. While these two incidents happened in Fairfax, law enforcement also thinks he has committed similar crimes elsewhere. He faces numerous charges including rape, strangulation, abduction and sodomy.

There are numerous aspects to sex crimes that have to be understood when charged with them. After a conviction and serving out the penalties, they will likely have to take part in a sex offender registry. This type of record can severely hamper a person's life as they try to get a job, get into a secondary school, join the military and try to do numerous other things. Because the punishments extend far beyond what the state issues and can severely damage a person's future, crafting a strong defense can be a key to the entire case.

In this situation, a man has been arrested for two allegations of sex crimes against women he allegedly solicited online. Given the circumstances of the case and its potential for a hefty prison sentence and long-term problems even after that sentence has been served, the man needs to discuss the matter with a legal professional experienced in defending clients charged with sex crimes.
