One of the most serious types of criminal charges a person can face is a sex crime charge. Sex offenders are harshly punished and must experience lifelong consequences for a conviction due to sex offender registration. Employers are hesitant to hire anyone with a sex crime history, and family and friends are far less likely to put trust in the individual who was convicted. If you have been arrested on charges of a sex crime, speak with a Las Vegas criminal defense lawyer right away. Gregory D. Knapp, Esq. can fight your sex crime charges in the Vegas area, including the following examples:

PENALTIES FOR SEXUAL ASSAULT & RAPE
Of all the sex crimes a person can commit, rape is the most heinous and incurs the most severe of penalties. Sexual assault is a Category A felony and is punishable by life in prison with eligibility for parole after 10 years. The penalties increase to life in prison with parole after 15 years or 25 years-or even without the possibility for parole-if substantial bodily harm was caused or if the act was committed against a child under 16 years of age.
