There are many types of sex crimes, and anyone can significantly negatively affect the lives of defendants and their families. Some examples of common sex crimes in Alabama are listed below:
Punishments for sex crimes vary depending on the charge and the circumstances involved. People who have previous sex crime convictions face much stricter penalties. For misdemeanors such as public lewdness, indecent exposure, and first-time prostitution, an offender may be given up to a year in jail and fines of up to $4,000; sometimes up to 180 days in jail and fines of up to $2,000 depending on the class. Felonies such as indecency with a child, sexual assault, and aggravated sexual assault attract a penalty of 180 days to two years in state jail and sometimes five to 99 years in prison, depending on the degree.
Defendants who are charged with any classification of a felony may also be fined up to $10,000. Additionally, all people convicted of sex crimes, despite their charges, must register as sex offenders. Regardless of the degree of the offense, we are ready to defend you tooth and nail to ensure that justice is served.
Sex crimes have some of the harshest penalties in Alabama and could require a criminal attorney. Being charged with a sex crime can devastate you, your family, and your reputation. If you are found guilty, you will face years in prison and harsh fines, and you will likely be required to register as a sex offender for the rest of your life. False charges are often filed in rape cases, which are very difficult to prove or disprove. Many people who are guilty of rape crimes do not spend any time in jail.

Mark has handled several legal matters for me over the past several years. All of them were quite difficult and emotionally exhausting. I got the results I desired. I can honestly say I could not have been more pleased with his services that he and his staff provided. I wholeheartedly recommend Mr. Turner to handle any legal matter that somebody might need help.
I contacted Mr. Turner for help with a difficult case. He was very timely and informative. He helped in so many ways. Eliminating unnecessary expenses and time. He even follows up after to see if there’s anything else that needs attention. I hired Mr. Turner and would recommend him.
Mark has been a friend and attorney for several years now. After a 15 year marriage that ended he always had my best interest in mind, some I didn’t want to hear but needed to. Mark is/was always willing to listen to me and give advice. My son had a situation that ended up being nothing and Mark met with us after I got off work and talked with my 23 year old like he was his own, my son respected him. I would highly recommend Mark
Mark was referred to me by a friend to help me with an uncontested divorce. I did a lot of checking around & it was $500 minimum until I spoke with Mark. I saved so much money & was so happy to have an attorney who I dealt with directly & not other staff. He even met me at a Chick-fil-A after I got off work one night. My divorce process was so easy and quick. Mark is very professional, intelligent, calming & pleasant. Truly a breath of fresh air. I actually just hired him again to handle an adoption.
I hired Mr Turner to defend me in a criminal case inwhich I was basically dead to rights on three charges, so I was hoping for a reduced sentence at best. But Mr. Turner was determined to do better than that and fought for me against impossible odds, under one of the toughest judges in the state and a merciless prosecutor. He would not give up and the final result was ZERO jail time!!! He was always professional, always available to contact, extremely helpful and very informative. He exceeded my expectations in every way and I could not have asked for a better lawyer or a better outcome.
