Our group was infiltrated and destroyed by the KGB, and I barely escaped the trail, hiding for a few months in the Kazakhstan steppes, working with a geological field party under an assumed name. For a while, I was satisfied traveling around the Soviet Union with field Expeditions, writing science articles that nobody read.
Later, back in Leningrad, I managed to defend my dissertation and earned a Ph. Nevertheless, the bondage and restraints of family and society life became unbearable, and I decided I would become a monk and sit somewhere in the Himalaya mountains in Nepal, perhaps, or India.
Police will go to your child's school and will enlist the help of administrators and teachers to question your child.

Often times police and child protective services (CPS) will seek to separate parents from their children, knowing that juveniles are less likely to assert their constitutional rights to remain silent or for a lawyer if they are isolated.
Often times parents and their children mistakenly believe that being charged with a juvenile sex crime is less serious. When a child is accused of a sex crime they have not had the time and experience in society to form a relationship with a future spouse; they have not found their occupation and cannot support themselves; and they have not yet had to search for housing.
These are all areas of their lives that will be hugely affected by juvenile criminal sex conviction.
Often times the lasting effects of a conviction and registration as a sex offender are more harmful than any incarceration initially served.
The most important thing to do if you or your child is even potentially a suspect in a juvenile offense is to immediately contact our office for assistance.
