Sexual Misconduct Charges
Whether you are culpable or not, the mere allegation of a sex offense can be devasting. More than any other offense, persons accused of a sex offense are treated as guilty before even going to court. Accusations can be highly subjective. Victim perception, witness observations, and forensic evidence (such as rape kits or DNA tests) can be interpreted in different ways. It is important to hire a lawyer who has conducted sex offense trials and knows how to effectively combat law enforcement tactics.
Some sexual offenses we commonly defend:
- Sexual Battery
- Unlawful sexual contact with a minor
- Sexual Imposition
- Child Pornography / Pandering Obscenity
What are the penalties if I am convicted of a sex crime?
The most impactful result of a conviction is lengthy prison time. However, significant fines, mandatory counseling, and probation (or post-release control) are also likely. Another major consideration is that a conviction will usually require you to register, for years, as a sex offender.
The severity of your penalty can be influenced by many variables:
- The existence of prior offenses
- The age of the alleged victim
- Allegations of weapon use or threat of use
- Whether the use of force is alleged
- For pandering obscenity and pornography, the number and nature of the images or videos
