Sex Crime Defense
The severity of sex crimes can vary greatly depending on what you are charged with. Whether you are charged with prostitution, sex abuse, or anything in between; we understand that the negative attention and social stigma alone can be unbearable. Early intervention in any case involving a sex crime can be critical to your defense. Through the years we have successfully intervened with police and stopped charges from ever being brought. Speaking with police is always a risk, and you should never do this without the counsel and presence of an aggressive criminal defense attorney on your side.
There are many scenarios that you will want to consider when charged with a sex crime. Ideally a dismissal or an acquittal would be best, but some people would prefer to take care of these charges as discreetly as possible. Either way, we are here to help you through this challenging time of your life.
The potential consequences of a conviction can be extremely serious. Many sex crimes have mandatory minimum sentences under Measure 11, while others are misdemeanors that carry no possibility of prison. One of the largest concerns that most clients have is registration. If convicted of certain sex crimes, you may be required to register a sex offender.
Some common situations are:
- Sex Abuse in any degree;
- Rape in any degree;
- Encouraging Child Sex Abuse; and,
- Measure 11 Sex Crimes.
How are these fought?
We fight sex crimes with the utmost diligence and aggressive tactics. The first thing we do with our clients is develop a plan and go over some of the possible scenarios. We do this by actively listening and getting to know our clients, so we can investigate and prepare in accordance with your goals. Basing our representation on your goals has produced great results in multiple cases over the years. The importance of communication when faced with a sex crime allegation cannot be measured.
