Sex Crimes Lawyer | Frederick Defense Attorney

What could I be penalized with?

Because sex crimes involve another individual, they are some of the most seriously punished offenses in Maryland. If you have been charged with a sex crime, you may be unsure of the terms of your possible conviction, as the laws regarding these crimes can be extremely convoluted. Many sex crimes are punishable by time in prison, even if it is a first offense. Depending on the nature of your crime, you may be required to register as a sex offender. This registration may require you to check in with certain government officials anytime you move to a new location and expose your information to the public. According to the Department of Public Safety & Correctional Services, there are a wide range of offenses that are considered registerable sex crimes.


Some of these crimes include:

  • Rape in any degree
  • Lewd conduct
  • Child molestation
  • Indecent exposure
  • Human trafficking
  • Sexual assault
  • Child pornography

Before assigning a sentence, the court will first review the facts surrounding your case. If there is evidence that a minor was involved, or at that the victim was unable to give their consent, your charges may be more severe.
