Portland Sex Crime Case? You Need an Attorney
Laws regarding sex crimes and sex offender registration requirements are constantly changing and becoming all the more severe. Not only will you face criminal penalties for a sex crime conviction, but you may also face registration as a sex offender and thus the social stigma associated with this.
