When a person faces charges for sex crimes in Virginia, these allegations are more than just a simple case in which a person can deal with the charges and move on one way or the other. There are other issues that are in focus when there are accusations of sex offenses and an arrest. These include the overhanging stigma that can follow a person around for the rest of his or her life. It can affect a person's personal life, a job and their future. The first step when confronted with these charges is to make sure to have legal help.

Recently, a 64-year-old assistant principal at a Virginia school was arrested on sex crimes involving a child. The incident occurred in mid-January and it is said to have happened on the same block of the school's location. There has been no confirmation as to whether it occurred on school property or not. It was also not disclosed as to whether or not it was a student at the school who is the alleged victim.

The man was placed on administrative leave from his job until the investigation is concluded. In addition to being an assistant principal, the man had previously been a math teacher for more than a decade. The man was held in jail and there was no bond set. He faces charges of taking indecent liberties with a child that was in custodial care.

With sex crimes of any form, there are serious issues that will come to the forefront. In this case, the man works as an assistant principal. A conviction will undoubtedly end his career as well as have a host of legal consequences.

Considering the seriousness of any accusation linked with child sexual abuse, the damage to reputation and other factors that will arise, the accused should put forth the most vigorous defense possible. In order to do that, speaking to an attorney experienced in defending clients who have been charged with sex crimes is imperative.
