The mandate on addressing sexual assault on college campuses cannot be any clearer, especially considering the scandals involving college football players. As many as 55 schools are under investigation for not properly dealing with such accusations.
If you have been charged and are found guilty of committing a sexual offense, you may be banned from using certain social media sites as a result of your conviction. In New Jersey, and in other states across the country, convicted sex offenders listed on the sex registry list cannot post on social media sites, such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
When a person learns they are being investigated by law enforcement officials in connection with a possible sex crime or are actually placed under arrest, it's understandable how they might feel a sense of sheer panic.
All individuals who are convicted of a crime are stigmatized in some way. However, individuals who are convicted of crimes of a sexual nature are particularly so. Part of this stems from the fact that, even after carrying out the terms of a criminal sentence, individuals who are convicted of certain sex crimes must continue to register with the state's sex offender registry.
