Indecent Liberties

As a sex offense against minors, the charge of taking indecent liberties with a child is a class F felony for adult offenders in North Carolina. A conviction can lead to up to 59 months in prison and mandatory registration as a sex offender.

Prosecutors often use this charge as a catch-all when the evidence falls short to support charges of sexual assault, statutory rape or sexual exploitation. It also covers allegations of enticing a minor online.

Why These Cases Are So Difficult To Tackle

All charges involving sex crimes carry an additional layer of complexity. The presumption of "innocent until proven guilty" loses sway in the public eye when allegations of crimes against children surface. The charge of indecent liberties is no different. Once charges are publicly filed, the effect on your reputation can be just as damaging as with other types of sex crimes.

The fallout is particularly damaging for teachers, pastors, caregivers and others who routinely work with children or hold authoritative positions. The social stigma surrounding these offenses can cloud the facts and issues, making it difficult to obtain a fair and objective outcome.
