The Most Hated Criminal Offense
Sex offenses, especially those involving children, are the most hated of criminal offenses. The accused are often assumed to be guilty. All that is required to be charged today is a finger point. The testimony of one witness is enough evidence to convict someone. Once an allegation is made, the police operate under the assumption that the allegations are true. It has become all too easy to accuse someone of a sex offense. All an accuser needs is a finger and someone to which it can be pointed. Police do not care. Prosecutors seem to care even less. The presumption of innocence plays almost no role in our court system when it comes to sex crimes. There is a huge stigma that is attached to a sex offender. A conviction for a sex offense can mean that your name and address, along with your picture will be posted on the internet for all to see.
Depending on the sort of sex offence an accused is convicted of, he may be forced to submit this information to the Connecticut Sex Offender Registry for life.
Every three months a convicted offender will be obligated to let the Department of Public Safety know where they live. If an offender fails to file on time every three months, or if the department for some reason even claims that they did not get the information the offender will be charged with yet another crime. Sometimes prosecutors unknowingly rely on false statements and testimony. Once the allegations are made, the damage is done. Even if an accused is found not guilty.
The worst of being a sex offender is not the jail time. The worst of it is being on probation. There are countless conditions that probation will impose. Probation will dictate where a person can live, where they can shop, who they can visit, where they can work, and it goes on and on and on. There is not other criminal conviction that can create such havoc on a person’s life.
Not all allegations of a sexual nature are true. These allegations are the easiest to make, and the most difficult to defend.
