Virginians who are accused of sexual crimes will not only have to face the legal ramifications for the allegations but also the aftermath with their personal and professional life. While sex offenses are bad enough with the major stigma accompanying them, these are exponentially worse when they involve child sexual abuse. Those who are confronted with an investigation and charges for these crimes must make certain to plan their defense immediately.

According to recent reports, a male dance teacher was placed under arrest based on allegations that he had a sexual relationship with underage girls. The man, 19, is facing multiple charges related to child pornography. The investigation commenced after an employee at the dance studio called law enforcement about a sexual crime between a student and the man. Upon investigating the allegations, the man was accused of communicating in an inappropriate manner with three girls, one 13 and two 14. This allegedly occurred between December 2015 and November 2016. In addition, he is facing accusations that he had a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old.

With these types of sex charges, a conviction will likely mean jail time, fines and the need to become part of the sex offender registry after release. This is not a matter of a person being convicted or making a plea deal, serving his debt to society and moving on. It is something that will follow him around for the rest of his life. It can make it difficult to get a job, to go to a school or to take part in a great number of activities. Regardless of the circumstances, those who are dealing with charges related to child sexual abuse must protect themselves and their future.

In this case, the man was placed under arrest for possessing, reproducing, distributing, soliciting and facilitating child pornography. Given the penalties he will face if he is convicted for these offenses, it is highly suggested that he lodge a defense with help from an attorney experienced in helping clients charged with sex crimes.

Anyone accused of a sex crime could benefit from the help of a legal professional. This not only helps a defendant determine what defense strategy is best, but it also ensures that his or her best interests are met and legal rights are protected.
