Sex Crimes | Blogs by Steven Titus & Associates, P.C.
In Wyoming, defendants convicted of certain sexual offenses must register as sex offenders. The sex offender registry is a public database containing the names of all sex offenders required to register who are living in the state. Under the law, any sex offender residing, working, or attending school in Wyoming must register with the sheriff of the county where he or she is living. Requirement to register as a sex offender can significantly curb the personal freedoms most Americans enjoy.
It’s natural to want to protect people from harm, especially children. And society is very scornful of people accused of any type of sexual abuse because it’s a horrible violation of another person.
Children are so vulnerable, and a sexual assault is also an attack on their innocence. People who are accused of sex crimes against children are often tried and convicted in the court of public opinion, even if they turn out to be innocent.
Wyoming has strict sexual assault laws, and violating them can lead to years in state prison, hefty fines, and even having to register as a sex offender. One such charge is statutory rape, which many defendants face because they do not know Wyoming’s age-of-consent laws or did not know the age of their partner before doing the deed.
