Skilled Sex Crimes Defense Attorneys in Simpsonville, South Carolina

South Carolina Requires Convicted Sex Offenders to Register with the State
Sex crime convictions in South Carolina require sex offender registration. That means your name and sex crime information will appear on the State Law Enforcement Division
website that identifies all registered sex offenders in the state
. That means, going forward, your conviction may be viewed by anyone with an internet connection for life. Not only will your conviction possibly require you to give up your freedom, but you will never be able to escape the bias and prejudice that comes with registering as a sex offender. Sex crimes convictions can keep you from getting a job, or keeping the one you have, and jeopardize your personal relationships going forward, in ways that you may not realize until a leasing agent, human resources director, or loan agency provides you with a rejection letter because of your status. At the David W. Martin Law Group, our law firm wants you to get ahead of your sex crime investigation, arrest, or charges by speaking with our Simpsonville criminal defense attorney today to learn the extent of the allegations brought against you, so you can learn what evidence or statements the solicitor’s office plans to present as evidence, so we can start building your defense now.
