Proactively Defend Your Rights Against Sex Crime Accusations
Even the rumor of an accusation of sexual violence can have devastating consequences for the individual accused. The social stigma attached to sex crimes can hang over you for years to come, even if you are not convicted. A conviction of a sexual-based offense can result in prison terms and registration on the sex offender registration, which makes personal information such as your name and address available to the public.

We devote ourselves to pursuing the best outcome for your case by thoroughly investigating your case and preparing the most effective strategy possible.
Lasting Repercussions Of A Conviction
One of the most obvious sex crimes involves engaging in sexual contact with an individual without their consent. But there are a variety of other sexual-based offenses an individual could be prosecuted for, including:
- Crimes against children ranging from solicitation of a minor to statutory rape
- Possession, production or distribution of child pornography
- Sending or storing indecent photographs on your mobile device
- Internet sex crimes, including solicitation of prostitution
- Sex trafficking
The penalties associated with these charges vary by situation and circumstances but are typically severe. Prison terms can range from two to 20 years for sexual assault up to 99 years for aggravated sexual assault resulting in the injury of a victim or use of threats or a weapon during the commission of the attack. Many of these crimes are felonies, and a conviction could affect your life for decades to come.
