Being charged with sex crimes can ruin a person's life in many ways, starting with reputation. A conviction can produce further consequences -- one being labeled a sex offender for life on the National Sex Offender Registry. However, charges do not always have to end in a conviction. Attorneys can sometimes get federal charges reduced or even dropped by putting together an aggressive defense. Often, there is more to the story than appears on the surface.
