Sex Offenses/Child Pornography

Twenty years ago, before technology played such a large role in society, sex offenses were handled very differently. It was common place to obtain probation relatively easily in a sex offense case. If the sex offense required sex offender registration, your name went in a book in the courthouse and that was pretty much it.

Times have changed. Dramatically. Politicians and legislators have dedicated significant amounts of money and resources to fighting sex offenses. Sex offender registration has now become the default position on almost all of these cases. And if your name ends up on the list, it no longer stays in a book in the courthouse. It is now on a state-wide website with your picture and personal identifying information for everyone to see.

Think about it. In today’s world, is there really a label that is worse than “sex offender?” This is a tag that tells the world you committed a sex offense, and that tag follows you for the rest of your life. Whether you go to jail or not, it is a consequence that makes sex offense allegations and charges especially serious. You need an attorney that will zealously fight your case and keep these things from happening.

Every sex offense charge is unique and can be defended a number of different ways. Did law enforcement illegally obtain information from your computer or cell phone? Does an expert witness need to pick apart the government’s case against you by examining your computer and explaining the process to the court? Does the alleged victim need to be thoroughly cross-examined and have their inconsistencies or movies to lie highlighted to a jury?

We have effectively handled these cases before. Whether your case involves a suppression issue, requires effective plea negotiations, or a full-fledged jury trial, we can do the job and protect your rights. Do not face sex offense charges alone. There is simply too much at stake.

If you are contacted by law enforcement regarding any type of sex offense allegation or charge, do not consent to a search of your computer, cell phone, or tablet. Do not make a statement. Instead, ask for an attorney immediately. The sooner we get involved, the sooner we can help you. Call us today for a free case evaluation.
