In Missouri, sexual assault is an umbrella term that is used to describe a varied group of offenses that range from a sexual misconduct misdemeanor to a felony rape charge. In addition to serving time behind bars, many sex crimes convictions also require that an individual comply with Missouri's sex offender registry laws, which include a lifetime registration requirement.
Avoid Significant Criminal Penalties
Cases involving allegations of sexual assault may involve individuals who were acquaintances, friends, former significant others or complete strangers. Every case is unique, and any and all evidence must be closely examined and scrutinized. In some sexual assault cases, an individual may deny that any sexual encounter ever took place. It's also common for an individual to admit to a sexual encounter, but insist that it was consensual in nature.
