The Negative Reaction to Sex Crimes
In our society there is a stigma attached to all criminal behavior, in fact some of the basis for why we have codified crimes in our society is that we view some behavior as being inherently wrong and we want to treat people differently when they have acted in certain ways. In the context of sex crimes the stigma and negative reaction is usually much worse than almost any other crime out there.

With all this surrounding sex crimes it is important to make sure that you have properly legal counsel to help you through this difficult time and fight to clear your name if you are in fact innocent.
