If you are accused of a sexual offense such as Forcible Touching you likely have many questions and concerns about what it will mean to your future, your job, and your reputation.  Forcible Touching is one of the few sex crimes that is a misdemeanor and not a felony.  While still serious, the potential consequences of a misdemeanor are less severe than a felony. If you are accused of any sexual offense, including forcible touching, it is important that you immediately contact an attorney who defends individuals who are accused of sexual related offenses. It is also important that you remain silent and not speak to anyone about this allegation until you have spoken to a lawyer who defends people who are charged with forcible touching.
