Frequently Asked Questions

Columbus Sex Crime Attorney

What is involved in sex offender registration?

Sex offender registration is a requirement for those who have been convicted of committing a sex crime. Perpetrators must continuously register certain information about themselves with law enforcement (typically once every year), such as their name and where they live. This information is available to the general public, making it a very unpleasant prospect to be labeled as a "sex offender."

What should I do if I am accused of a sex crime?

Your first act should be to contact a Columbus sex crime attorney from The Koffel Law Firm right away. If you fail to do so, anything you say to law enforcement during questioning may be used against you in your case. In trying to be cooperative, you may unintentionally incriminate yourself and increase your chances of being convicted by a criminal court.

Should I cooperate with law enforcement if I am being investigated for a sex crime?

If law enforcement possesses a warrant for your arrest or for a search of your property, then you will want to cooperate fully. However, it is recommended that you have your attorney review all warrants, to ensure that your rights are not being violated. You will also want to have them present during any interviews or questioning you undergo.

Will I have to register as a sex offender if convicted of a sex crime?

It is likely that you will have to register as a sex offender if convicted of a sex crime, even a minor one such as indecent exposure.

How do I choose an attorney to defend against a sex crime charge?

Experience, case results and professional reputation should all be considered. At The Koffel Law Firm, Mr. Koffel, the managing attorney has been listed in Ohio Super Lawyers, as well as Best Lawyer in America, and Top 50 Lawyer in Columbus. With an AV rating (highest possible) from Martindale-Hubbel, a peer review rating, you can be confident that you have legal representation with a reputation for quality defense work and case results.

Contact a Columbus sex crime attorney if you have additional questions about your charges, or if you need professional legal representation in your sex crime case.
