In Los Angeles, when a man is arrested for a sex crime, he's usually in for a serious set of consequences such as jail time, heavy fines, probation, mandatory counseling and being placed on the sex offender registry. However, it seems across the country there are double standards for how courts treat men and women accused of sex crimes. Either way, it's vital to have a Los Angeles Criminal Defense Attorney representing you, no matter your gender or age.
In Ohio, a 31 year old woman posed as a teenage boy in order to have sex with underage girls. Patricia Dye was convicted of using the alias "Matt Abrams" in order to date 16 year old girls, one of whom ran away from her mother in order to live with Dye. Dye admitted, after her arrest, that she attempted to make her boyish looks more believable by cutting her hair into a short, androgynous style. A judge sentenced Dye to jail and put her on a two-year probation. The jail term is only six months, however she must register with authorities as a sex offender every six months for the next 15 years. Some critics are complaining that if the situation involved a man, there would have been a great deal more jail time involved in the sentencing, which may be true. However, Dye was still sentenced to 15 years of registering as a sex offender, which will affect her job, where she can live, and pretty much the rest of her life.
