What Are You Accused Of?

Sex crimes are a broad category of criminal charges involving alleged sexual or sexually explicit conduct. Sex crime accusations can be highly embarrassing and intimidating for those who are charged. Among these charges are:

  • Rape
  • Sexual assault
  • Statutory rape (sex with a minor)
  • Child molestation
  • Possession of child pornography
  • Indecent exposure
  • Failure to register as a sex offender if previously convicted

Most sex crime cases are not about someone jumping out of the bushes and attacking someone. The circumstances are often more subtle, sometimes involving accusations of date rape (also known as acquaintance rape) and sometimes involve drug and alcohol use.

Statutory rape charges can be brought even if the accused person is also a minor, or not very much older than the alleged victim. Child molestation charges are often brought in the context of child protective services proceedings.

Gathering Credible Evidence in Your Defense

Sex crime charges generally arise from emotional situations where underlying issues are contributing to the allegations that are being made. In some cases, people's stories change as they process what happened or what they believe happened.

We are particularly skilled at the use of expert witnesses to sort out these issues. Among these experts is a former FBI employee who administers polygraph (lie detector) tests to our clients, their accusers and other witnesses. We also work with a private investigator who is a former police officer.

Each case is unique, but in many cases, presenting credible evidence can be the key to a well-structured defense.
