Sex Crime Defense Lawyers
As former supervising prosecutors, our lawyers know how prosecutors approach sex crime cases. Our experience allows us to anticipate prosecutors’ strategies to pursue favorable results for our clients. We also understand the sensitive nature of these cases and take every measure to protect our clients’ privacy.
Don’t Talk to the Police
In sex crime cases, prosecutors rely heavily on testimony from alleged victims. They also want to talk to you. It is very important to consult with an experienced defense lawyer before making any statement to police, prosecutors or anyone for that matter. Generally, what you tell your attorney is privileged information, meaning it is confidential and only between you and your attorney.
As soon as you enlist our services, we will begin exploring defense strategies. In many situations, we are able to get charges dismissed before charges are filed or before indictments are returned. If that is not possible, we will pursue the next best outcome, whether it is reduced charges, alternative sentencing or acquittal by jury. Our goal is to ensure this sex crime charge impacts your life as little as possible.
