A conviction for a sex offense will carry a serious consequence, guaranteed! Penalties include being a convicted felon, prison or jail time, and being required to register as a sexual offender or sexual predator for life. The sex offender registry will make public your name, your conviction, your address, and other personal information. In addition, you may be prohibited from living near schools, day cares, parks, and other facilities with children. In fact, Pasco County and some other counties in Florida have passed county ordinances that contain prohibitions much more stringent than the state law.

The Pre-File stage of an investigation is the time period before the State Attorney’s Office files formal criminal charges. This is the period of time when law enforcement gets called and begins their investigation. You should retain an experienced Pasco County sex crimes attorney during the Pre-File stage and as soon as you become aware that you are under investigation. Investigators cannot force you to give a statement or answer their questions. Don’t make the mistake by talking, and think that you will talk your way out of trouble. Remember you’ll never get in trouble for something you didn’t say. Even if the sexual encounter was consensual, your statements may assist the prosecution in prosecuting and convicting you. There is no hurry in giving a statement to investigators. Talk to Thurow Law before you talk to the police.
One of the biggest mistakes suspects make is talking to someone that is not their attorney. The conversations between you and your attorney are privileged, meaning your attorney cannot be forced to testify against you. Conversations with your parents, friends or the alleged victim are not privileged and can be used to convict you. Law enforcement officers routinely use a technique referred to as the “controlled call” to obtain statements from the suspect. A controlled call occurs when the police have someone call the suspect, while be monitored, coached and recorded by law enforcement personnel, in an attempt to get the suspect to talk about the case and make admissions that will result in the arrest and conviction of the suspect.
