The Risks Of Sex Offense Convictions

If you need help, contact us.
There are several sex offenses under Ohio law; some of them unexpectedly carry mandatory sex offender registration upon conviction. You may be charged with misdemeanor voyeurism or sexual imposition in a municipal court. It does not seem logical for a misdemeanor conviction to destroy your life. But under Ohio law, if convicted of one of these misdemeanors, you will be required to register as a sex offender every year for a period of 15 years.
Even being accused of committing a sex offense can instantly destroy your life – you could lose your family, your job and your reputation instantly. If you are convicted of a sex offense, you may be required to register as a sex offender for between 15 years and life, depending on the crime. Being registered and classified as a sex offender carries devastating collateral consequences that can rob you of your livelihood.
