Judges Need The Facts

Judges might be experts in the law, but they’re not experts in most medical fields. A good judge will trust experts on the stand who are there to give deeper knowledge about a particular mental problem such as addiction.

When you enlist the help of Sexual Addiction Treatment Services, your client can be given a battery of tests to find out exactly what their problem is. This can be presented to the judge so that he or she can have the facts and make informed decisions.

Judges Need To Know That Help Is Being Sought

When someone with problematic sexual behavior starts working with a doctor for their problems, it lets the judge know that they’re serious about getting help. This can help convince the judge to be lenient.

The Person Gets Help

While it might be important for you to help your client, it’s just as important that the accused actually is getting help. Talking with a sexual addiction therapist is an excellent first step to getting a handle on out of control sexual behavior.
