Navigating Charges That Jeopardize Your Future
Sexual assault is a serious crime. In Wisconsin, a sexual assault conviction often results in harsh consequences that can follow an individual for the rest of their lives. Because of the severity of these penalties, it is crucial that you turn to skilled and committed legal representation. Penalties for a sexual assault conviction can include:
- Major fines: Fines for sexual assault offenses can reach as high as $100,000.
- Registration as a sex offender: A sexual assault conviction can land an individual on the national sex offender registry. Your placement within this database can significantly hinder your ability to find work or a place to live.
- Imprisonment: In some cases, a felony sexual assault conviction can lead to life imprisonment. Even a misdemeanor charge can result in a prison term of up to nine months.
Defense strategies for allegations of sexual assault are subjective. In certain cases, accusations are fabricated as a retaliatory measure for a personal dispute. In other instances, such as those involving children, testimony can be unreliable or comments may be misunderstood. Mr. Brophy will take the time to fully assess your case before arriving at the most apt legal strategy for you.
