Understanding the Severity of a Sex Crime Conviction
The conviction for a sex crime can lead to lifetime punishment that doesn’t end when the prison sentence has been served. Even a minor sex offense can also result in years of punishment as a registered sex offender or being put on lifetime supervision. At Law Offices of Gary A. Modafferi, our Las Vegas sex crime attorneys are dedicated to educating the accused by helping them understand the long-term consequences that they could face. From being labeled as a registered sex offender and/or being placed on lifetime supervision, these penalties can follow you for years if you are convicted.
Lifetime Supervision & Registration Defense
If any who are facing sex offender registration or lifetime supervision, it is important for them to understand that the legal defense they choose at this time could make difference between freedom and severe consequences. Lawyers who are inexperienced with sex crime defense may advise pleading guilty to a minor sex offense charge to get past an embarrassing situation, even when it is not your fault or you are not the wrongdoer. Have a talk with an experienced Las Vegas defense lawyer from our law firm about what sex offender registration can mean before you speak with law enforcement.
A few examples of restrictions involved for a registered sex offender include:
Residence within 500 feet of a playground, child care, or school
Communication with any child under the age of 18
Operation of an emergency vehicle, rescue vehicle
Operation of any type of vehicle which sells food

Time limits, such as 10 or 15 years, are often imposed for sex offender registration. The person may eventually be free of the need to stand in line once a year to register. However, many individuals face with lifetime mandatory sex offender registration. Whatever may be the case for you, it is essential that you speak with a Las Vegas criminal defense attorney who is familiar with the law and can fight for your rights.
