Article on "Witch Hunts" Reinforces Need For Expert Sex Crime Defense When Charged

October 30, 2012 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Miami, Florida — The need for vigorous defense when charged with sex crimes, such as that offered by Florida-based Musca Law, was recently underscored in an article from the country's opposite coast.

An editorial in California's Ventura County Reporter recently commented on a city law being considered for October 31st, which would require sex offenders listed as a result of Megan's Law to post signs on their door, saying "No candy or treats at this residence" on Halloween night. The article rightly states that "to think of a child being hurt by another, especially by an adult, in any way, is practically unfathomable and certainly detestable."

But the commentary also goes on to ask about circumstances, such as when "a 19-year-old man (might) be convicted of pedophilia if he were to perform a sexual act with his longtime high school sweetheart who is 17? What about if he were in possession of a picture she sent of herself naked? Under the law, both are crimes against a child and both would require him to register if convicted. Though prosecutors may be careful about treading such waters, it doesn't mean they won't file charges and win."

The article goes on to wonder if politics — especially in district attorneys' offices - might often trump not only common sense, but in fact, the best interests of the community itself.
