Sex offender registry
Zachary’s Law — governed by Indiana sex offender registry statutes — requires convicted sex offenders to register with law enforcement agencies in the counties where they live, work, own property or attend school. The database makes personal information about you easily available to the public, in some cases for 10 years and in others for the rest of your life. Keeping you out of the sex offender classification is a top priority of your Indiana criminal defense lawyers.
The Indiana Supreme Court has found that the registry requirement is unconstitutional in some cases. If your case is affected by Richard P. Wallace v. State of Indiana or Todd Jensen v. State of Indiana, we challenge the inclusion of your name on the registry and seek legal relief from the unjust requirement.
Sexting and social media
Advancements in technologies have resulted in new crimes, including internet solicitation of minors, internet transmission of child pornography and sexting — sending sexually explicit photos or messages via text. Some seemingly innocent flirtations can quickly turn into an arrest. Social media and internet sites allow for anonymity, diminished inhibitions and a false sense of privacy. As experienced sex offense attorneys in Franklin, Indiana, we remain up-to-date on the latest technologies and the constantly-changing laws governing them.
