When an individual is facing sex crime charges, it is important to note that a conviction of these charges may result in you having to register as a sex offender as a condition of your probation. This is serious, as registration will follow you for years and impact your future.


As communities become much more vigilant about maintaining safety for children and all residents, the pressure to monitor those individuals convicted of sex offenses increases. The sex offender registry is one way in which law enforcement can maintain visibility to where the convicted persons are living and working.

In addition to having to register as a sex offender and have limitations placed on you, your community will also be notified that you are moving into the area. This also limits your privacy and exposes you to negative actions from the community.

Sexual contact of a child can lead to prison, lawsuits, and being on the sex registry

Fighting a sex crime in Fairfield County is a tough battle, as prosecutors often seek the toughest penalties in these cases.


A man from Taftville was first arrested in Maine ​from a warrant from Franklin County dating back to 2008. He had left the state of Maine while he was under investigation for alleged sexual misconduct with a young girl. He was later arrested in Connecticut after being pulled over for a traffic stop. Authorities say that the girl told police that he had touched her inappropriately, so he was charged with a class B felony: one count of unlawful sexual contact with a child under the age of 12. He was detained in a jail in Franklin County jail had faced up to 10 years in prison.


Anyone in a similar situation needs to speak with an experienced criminal defense attorney with experience fighting sex crime charges. Being able to fight the charges is the difference in whether a person gets convicted. This man was ultimately sentenced to 3 years and had to register as a sex offender, which can alter his life forever.


Anytime someone in the Stamford area is arrested or charged with a sex crime it can affect that person’s life forever, either because of the stigma – even if a person is exonerated of the charges - especially when the situation involves a child.  The Danbury News Times reports that a Western Connecticut State college professor was arrested for sexual contact with a minor. Reports say that the man met the boy online and had sexual contact with the boy at the boy’s home in Somers, NY.  The man was arrested in New York and charged with a criminal sexual act and endangering the welfare of a minor under 17, later held without bail in Westchester County. In 2014, he was convicted of the felony of third-degree criminal sexual act and is a registered sex offender on the Connecticut state sex offender registry. He was sentenced to 10 years probation, and was sued by the boy’s parents for "no less than $10,000,000.​" The charges and consequences of a sex crime are severe, and it is important for anyone in a similar situation in Fairfield County to seek a criminal defense attorney to get good legal representation to fight the charges.


Sex offenders can get arrested for submitting address forms late


Being convicted of a sex crime in Fairfield County has many serious consequences, including being registered as a sex offender. One of the many things that registered sex offenders have to do is to periodically update their living status, and if they don’t, there are additional consequences.


A Wilton man who is a registered sex offender was arrested again after authorities claim he failed to comply with the conditions of his conviction. Court papers say that twice in a six month period, the man did not correctly submit his address verification forms to Connecticut State Police. 


The law states that registered sex offenders have to turn in an address verification card to authorities within 10 days after receiving it from State Police. This man turned it in late and was arrested for sexual offender registration violations; he had faced two counts of failing to register as a sex offender.


In fact, there are fees in many states to register as a sex offender, adding penalties to offenders that are already serving out their extended sentences. When you are convicted of sex offenses, you are often required to register with a database to monitor your location and movement – and to pay a cash fee to register in your state.


Many states are also considering adding an annual registration fee to sex offenders, to offset the cost of running the database and/or bring in revenue to the states. It is also being considered to waive the fee for sex offenders who do not meet minimum income levels or other requirements. Judges have been ruling on whether these fees are unconstitutional, and the ACLU has voiced concern over singling out convicts to fund state services such as the sex offender database.

Anyone facing a sex crime charge needs to take the charges very serious, and to get the help of a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible.



Prohibited contact with minors

 

Registered sex offenders lose the right to play online

 

Punishments doled out for conviction of a sex crime are varied and serious. A guilty verdict in Connecticut can get you steep fines and lengthy prison time, and it can come with the stigma of being registered sex offender.

 

A few years ago, states have started adding a somewhat surprising item to the list of activities that’s prohibited to convicted sex offenders: online video games. In New York’s "Operation: Game Over," ​the state purged thousands of online gaming accounts held by registered sex offenders from various networks, in an attempt to keep young child gamers from contact with the offenders. Thousands of other gamers accounts nationwide have been removed, and some states require registered sex offenders to notify the state of every online identity they create after leaving prison and/or paying fines. Private internet companies cross reference this list to track or remove theses users from online communities – and Microsoft, Apple, Blizzard Entertainment, Electronic Arts, Disney Interactive, Warner Brothers, and Sony have all cooperated with the Attorney General.

 

This underscores how your life will be limited in many ways if you are found guilty of a sex crime. When sex charges are alleged, you should contact a criminal defense attorney who can take every angle to make a lesser charge or verdict of Not Guilty possible.

 

Prohibited contact with minors for alleged sexual misconduct

 

A 25-year-old New Canaan woman was charged with risk of injury to a minor after she allegedly participated in a sexual relationship with a teenage boy. The woman was a youth group leader at the Church of New Canaan, and was also a substitute teacher at Tomlinson Middle School in Fairfield.

 

Being convicted of a sex crime can lead to very severe penalties, including lengthy prison time and sex offender registration. In her case, she was found guilty and not only has to register as a sex offender for 10 years, but she forbidden from having any contact (supervised or unsupervised) with minors during that time.
