Experienced Sex Crime Defense Lawyers Fighting for Your Future
Sex offender registration is required by law for individuals convicted of a sex offense. However, the sex offender registry can be misleading in that it does not differentiate between levels of offense. Therefore, individuals convicted for CSC 4 for minor unwelcome touching (e.g., grabbing someone's butt) will endure the same damage to their reputation as individuals convicted for CSC 1 or CSC 2 for child molestation. It will be difficult — even impossible — for these individuals to maintain a normal life as they will always have to live with the negative stigma of a sex offender label. In addition, individuals convicted for CSC 1 or CSC 2 will face a prison sentence for 25 years to life under Jessica's law.
That is why it is so important to have an experienced sex crime defense attorney on your side from the beginning. Our defense lawyers advocate for our clients and protect their constitutional rights from the onset of the case. We are experienced at handling the most complex of sex offenses, such as:
- Rape, date rape and statutory rape
- Sexual abuse
- Possession of child pornography
- Internet solicitation of minors
- Child molestation
- Unwelcome touching
- Other sexual assault
We challenge the evidence against you by questioning the credibility of witnesses or accusers, and we submit motions to suppress coerced confessions from court. Our sex crime defense lawyers are skilled at handling child sex crime cases and demonstrating the impact of taint and suggestibility when interviewing children.
