Being charged with any crime can be scary, but federal sex crime charges carry especially serious penalties.

While judges have some discretion, they are constrained by the guidelines. And federal parole was abolished in 1987 – the sentence imposed is served at 85%. Meet with your lawyer to understand the realistic range if convicted.
