A comment from the wrong person and a life can be ruined in an instant. Whether it's from a wife in a divorce, a contested custody case and your ex-spouse says that your child made a statement, an ex-employee who is bringing a wrongful termination suit, someone you dated after a bad break up, or any number of situations.
A reputation built over the course of a lifetime can be shattered in an instant. Many sex offenses are built on exaggeration, misunderstandings, questionable motives or false accusations. Sex offenses often have no witnesses or evidence and boil down to a matter of he said / she said.
If it was any other type of offense, it is possible Solicitors would not bring the charges for a lack of evidence. But there is righteous moral indignation against sex offenses and against the type of people that would commit sex offenses, and that indignation attaches to people that are accused of sex offenses, whether they are guilty or not.

Do NOT Plead Guilty to a Sex Offense without Very Careful Consideration
The public is relatively forgiving of people who have served their time for crimes. That feeling of amnesty does not hold with sex offenses. When you plead guilty or are found guilty of a sex offense, you are put on a lifetime sex offender list and must register twice a year where ever you live. The sex offender lists are publicly available and your neighbors will know that you are a registered sex offender. Some states will limit how close you can live to schools and daycares. Other states will limit your ability to work with children or the public.
