Defending Clients Facing Sex Crime Charges throughout Minnesota
Sex crime charges are some of the most serious charges that a person can face. Sex crime convictions carry significant penalties, including lengthy periods of incarceration and hefty fines. A felony conviction for a Minnesota sex crime generally carries a 12-year prison sentence in addition to significant fines. A first-degree felony sex crime conviction in Minnesota could result in 30 years in jail and $40,000 in fines.
Moreover, a sex crime conviction can impact a person’s life for many years to come, impacting a person’s ability to obtain housing and get a job, among other things. Charges of a Minnesota sex crime alone can cause major damage to a person’s reputation and impact their ability to get and hold a job.
For these reasons, it is essential to hire an experienced Minnesota sex crime attorney to protect your rights and defend you against the criminal charges. Minneapolis sex crime attorney Max A. Keller has been handling criminal cases involving various Minnesota sex crime charges since 1997. His vast experience and considerable legal knowledge regarding Minnesota sex crimes have resulted in acquittals, dismissal of charges, and reduced sentences for many individuals throughout Minnesota.

Speaking with a criminal defense attorney early in the process can be the difference between being charged with a crime that carries the requirement of sex offender registration, and being charged with a less serious crime not requiring registration. If you’re being investigated for a sex crime, contact a criminal defense attorney today.
If you’ve already been charged with a sex crime, you aren’t out of options. Not by a long-shot. A criminal defense attorney with experience defending sex crimes can help you raise many valid defenses. Evidence used in sex crimes can be complicated. For example, possible evidentiary issues may relate to the DNA, including the type of testing used and the reliability of that particular method of testing, evidence that the person making the allegations may have presented himself or herself as being of a legal and consenting age, evidence from social networking sites or previous criminal records that may demonstrate the person making the allegations has not been truthful with the police, and any alibi defenses that may demonstrate the charged individual could not have committed the crime.
Sex Offender Registration
Certain sex crimes require you to register as a sex offender even if you are convicted, or plead guilty to, a lesser offense, even one as minimal as disorderly conduct. In essence, it doesn’t matter to the court and the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) that you didn’t plead guilty to a sex crime requiring sex offender registration – if you were merely charged with a sex crime requiring predatory registration, you will still have to register as a sex offender if you are convicted or plead guilty to a lesser offense.
