No other crime carries the severe social stigma of being labeled a sex offender. A conviction of a sex crime can mean lifelong registration on the sex offender registry, the destruction of marriages and families, the loss of a professional license, residency restrictions, and the loss of even closest friends. A conviction can also bring unwanted attention from neighbors, the media, and the unremitting invasion of one’s privacy. Despite these severe consequences, it is often the case that charges are be filed due to misunderstandings, because of jealousy, or even “just by mistake.”
