The Truth About a Sex Charge in New York
Because an actual sex charge can be heinous, New York courts will frequently set high bail for persons accused of sexual offenses, but the professionals at North Country Bail Bond know one basic fact about a charge of a sexual offense: There is a big difference between being charged with a sexual offense and being convicted of a sexual offense. Although a sex charge is serious, many persons accused of sex charges are ultimately acquitted and have the charges dismissed at the end of the case.
When your loved one is falsely accused of a sex charge, the professionals at North Country Bail Bonds will work with you to take the necessary steps to gain his freedom as soon as possible so that he can work with his legal counsel and defense team to fight the charge and defend himself, rather than be victimized and treated as a sex offender at the local jail before he is given a trial to defend himself.
At North Country Bail Bonds, we don’t like sex offenders any more than the rest of society, but we’ve been around long enough to know that being charged is different than being guilty. We regard securing the release of a person unjustly accused of a sexual offense as a serious matter and, if we agree that your loved one is falsely accused of a sex charge, no bail bond company will work harder to secure the pre-trial release of the unjustly accused.
What Should a Person Unjustly Accused of a Sex Charge Do?
As in every case, the person unjustly accused of a sex charge should take the necessary steps to post bail fast. An unjustly accused person charged with a sexual offense will face enough obstacles and it is far easier to defend yourself when released than it is while confined to a jail cell. A trial for a sex charge may take a year or longer after an arrest. No man should spend a year or more in jail unjustly imprisoned for a sexual offense.
