Those who are arrested for sex crimes in Waukesha such as child molestation often fail to realize how quickly the criminal charges against them can accumulate if and when their actions are uncovered by authorities. There's the charge related to the act itself, which, if deemed serious enough, could escalate to a sexual assault charge. Also in such cases, police will seize computers and other electronic media devices, if on which illicit material is discovered could led to a further charge of possession of child pornography. Then there's potential charges related to enticing the children themselves. What may have been initially viewed as a single random act of poor judgment may soon be portrayed as a multi-dimensional criminal operation.
While most won't hesitate to report a crime in Waukesha, many find it difficult to either intervene to stop a criminal act or to act on their suspicions of one's behavior or conduct. Whether it's the fear of retaliation from the perpetrator or just a basic desire to not become involved in another's business, the failure to act by one may not only enable the criminal actions of another, but also compound the suffering of those victims being affected by such actions. When this happens, authorities may often consider the complicit party to be just as culpable as the perpetrator.
