Facing criminal charges is a daunting prospect for anyone, including Baton Rouge residents. Often, we forget that the accused is innocent until proven guilty-the media usually paints a person under investigation as someone who has already been convicted and public opinion is quick to turn against that person. When the federal charges include those of exploiting children, as mentioned in last week's post, people are even more likely to form opinions before the verdict is out.
Even when one braves public opinion, the penalties associated with a conviction, such as registration in a sex offender registry, has far reaching implications. It affects the locality in which one can reside and the employment opportunities one can pursue. It also affects the person's personal security, as all their details are out in the public sphere for someone to discover.
