Moorestown NJ Sex Crime Lawyer
Criminal offenses involving sexual acts are not something to be trifled with in New Jersey. Even if you are found to be innocent of the charges, the public scorn, ridicule and embarrassment can be difficult to overcome. In the unfortunate event that you are tried and found guilty of a sex crime, you are likely facing mandatory imprisonment and Megan’s Law Registration with a Sex Offender Database. This means that your information and criminal history will be available to the public at large. In Burlington County, sex offenses are typically prosecuted by the Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office, as that is the office that handles felony indictable offenses in Burlington County. It is imperative that you retain an experienced law firm that has handled sex-related crimes before. These cases typically lack direct evidence and are instead based on “your word v. their word” in regards to what transpired. If you or someone in your family have been arrested for a sex crime like sexual assault, criminal sexual contact, luring, possession of child pornography or aggravated sexual assault, call the criminal defense attorneys at Proetta, Oliver & Fay. Our team handles all aspects of criminal matters, including any Detention Hearings you may be facing. We can be reached day and night by calling 609-850-8284.

Megan’s Law Attorneys in New Jersey
Megan’s Law was enacted in response to the demand for access to information regarding the identity and location of convicted sex offenders. The idea behind it was that the community had a right to know who might prove a threat to the safety of those in the community. This led to the enactment of N.J.S.A. 2C:7-1 et seq., also known as Megan’s Law. Megan’s Law created a state registry for sex offenders, as well as an Internet website registry, and a community notification procedure. Depending upon where you fall within a three-tier system (which is based upon your risk level for re-offense), your restrictions will vary. If you have been charged with certain sex offenses in New Jersey, you will be subject to Megan’s Law. Call our office to learn more about Megan’s Law and how it could affect you or your family member.
