Being accused of a sex crime can ruin your reputation, your family life, and can even effect your employment status. There is definitely a stigma attached to this type of accusation. You may have to register as a sex offender if you are convicted.

Calling a law firm such as the Raleigh, North Carolina, law office of Marcilliat & Mills PLLC, may be something to think about. We realize that there are two sides to every story and we can make sure that your side is told in the court of law.

This type of charge is always emotionally-charged and, if it is being tried in the court of public opinion, you may need that extra support that we can offer.

If you are being questioned by the police, you may want to invoke your right to not speak to them without one of our attorneys being present. We will be able to decipher exactly what the charges are and why they are questioning you.

Because the nature of this charge is categorized as a sex crime, you may suffer from the embarrassment that can come if the media gets wind of it. We are not afraid and will have your best interests in mind.

Under the laws of North Carolina and the federal law, you could be facing prison if you are convicted — 20 years or more. You also may have to register as a sex offender, which leaves your options for a normal life in limbo.

Many times, the baggage that comes with a charge of a sexual offense is large. Being accused of rape or other sexual offenses may leave you with few options. The advocacy of a team that can help you may be crucial.
