Accused of Rape? Your Future and Reputation Are On the Line.

  • Requiring you to inform the sex offenders' registry whenever you move
  • Preventing you from having a job involving children, regardless of your sex crime
  • Preventing you from going to parks, gardens or going near schools
  • Affecting your ability to get a job, apply for a loan or for school
