When facing a sex crimes charge of any type in Minneapolis, one might have many different questions concerning the charges and their potential outcomes. The experienced Minneapolis sex crimes defense lawyers at Gaskins Bennett Birrell Schupp LLP have compiled this list of frequently asked questions in order to aid our potential clients.
What do I do if I’m arrested?
If you have been arrested, and properly read your rights (Mirandized), then the first thing you should do is invoke your right to remain silent. An all too common mistake that people arrested for sex crimes make is choosing to freely discuss the case with the arresting officers. You have the right to remain silent for a reason - to avoid incriminating yourself! Be advised that the police and prosecutors will use what you say against you if you elect to speak with them. Regardless of what they may say, they are not on your side and they certainly do not have your best interests in mind.
What if I’m Interrogated?
When you are brought to jail, if you are set up to be interrogated, immediately invoke your right to have an attorney present. This is an absolute must. Contact one of the experienced sex crimes defense lawyers at G|B|B|S right away. Our top defense lawyers will speak with the police or prosecutors on your behalf if you wish them to do so. Any and all questions the police may have for you should be routed through one of our seasoned sex crimes defense lawyers.
What is Sex Offender Registration?
Those found guilty of certain sex crimes in Minnesota will be made to register as a sex offender. This process is incredibly serious as it will significantly make your life more difficult. A sex offender database shares with the public information about who you are, where you live, and what type of sex crime you committed. Registered sex offenders, for certain crimes, are even prohibited from living in certain areas and are required by law to report to the authorities if they move to a new location. All of these reasons reinforce the necessity of having the best legal representation possible to fight off any sex crimes charges you may be facing. Contact a professional sex crimes defense lawyer at G|B|B|S today to mount an aggressive defense for you against these charges.
