Sex offenses in North Carolina include a broad spectrum of violations, including those defined under antiquated, yet still enforced, laws concerning "crimes against nature" (CAN). Using an incredibly broad interpretation of the CAN law, authorities aggressively engage in sting operations that can end up targeting members of the gay or bisexual community, as well as locations known for public, and sometimes private, sexual activities.

Experienced Representation for Crimes Against Nature Charges
Defined by antiquated statutes as soliciting or attempting to engage in "sexual intercourse contrary to the order of nature," North Carolina crimes against nature laws can criminalize a wide range of sex acts, including oral sex and anal intercourse.
Often, many other sexual offenses such as indecent exposure or public masturbation may be caught up in the dragnet.
Most of these offenses are misdemeanors, and some are even felonies, and these sex offenses can result in severe consequences such as jail, fines, probation and the loss of your reputation.
