Fighting For Your Rights In Sex Crime Cases
Sex offenses carry serious consequences if you are convicted. Not only are you facing jail time and fines, but you may be required to register as a sex offender, which would be visible to potential employers, landlords, neighbors and any other members of the public. To protect your rights and future, it is crucial to talk to an experienced criminal defense attorney about your options.

Registering As A Sex Offender
If you are convicted of a sex offense in Tennessee, you will most likely be required to have your name added to the state sex offender registry. Established in 1994 as a tool for police and other law enforcement officials to track known offenders, the registry is now public and used to place restrictions on where a sex offender can live, work, visit and more.
The sex offender registry is one of the reasons it is essential to have aggressive, comprehensive representation when facing any type of sex crime charges. I work to defend your rights and attempt to keep you off the registry whenever possible to ensure your future is minimally impacted.
