Defending Clients against Charges of Sex Crime

Sex offenses should be handled promptly and effectively. Nearly all sex crimes are felonies, with a higher likelihood of prison time in addition to mandatory sex offender registration. At my law office, clients get experienced legal representation with a focus on the best possible result under the circumstances.

A conviction of a sex crime isn’t just time served. It will follow you for the rest of your life. Having the proper representation may limit the damage done by sex-related charges.

Limiting the Damage

I’ve spent more than 20 years defending clients facing numerous types of serious felony charges. Through a combination of detailed investigation and diligent advocacy, I have achieved successful results for my clients through the years. My skills can be put to use for people facing charges that include:

  • Rape
  • Sodomy
  • Sexual abuse
  • Statutory rape
  • Child pornography
  • Internet-related offenses
  • Failure to report/register

What Can I Do?

I offer an aggressive defense against your charges. If need be, I’ll bring in a special investigator to sift through the facts in your case. You will know what you are up against and your options for defense.

Minimizing the Effect of Child Porn Charges

In the age of technology, it is easier than ever to find the information we want or need. Although this can be beneficial for work and play, it can also be dangerous. With a little bit of searching, almost anyone can find child pornography. Just clicking on an inappropriate picture traces it to your computer, and there are also a number of viruses which automatically download porn to your computer.

The same ease that allows people to find pornography is the same lead authorities have when they are looking for criminals. Some people are slapped with charges after the police search their computer, while other people are lured in by officers pretending to be young children. Regardless of the bait you followed, if you are facing charges for possession of child pornography, it is important to find a lawyer who can give you the aggressive defense you need.

Damage Control in Child Pornography Cases

When I work with clients who are facing charges for child pornography, damage control is one of my first obligations. I get clients into counseling programs to show the court you are taking affirmative steps to turn your life around. If your computer was exposed to spam or viruses, I may be able to show you did not know about the porn or did not download it intentionally. I work hard to mitigate the charges and the impact it will have on your life.

Domestic Violence

An Aggressive Defense Against Domestic Violence Charges

Married people fight. It is an innate characteristic of many marriages. Although fighting is normal, sometimes anger gets blown out of proportion. In a rage of anger, men may threaten their wives and women may hit their husbands. In a calm state of mind, most people recognize that that behavior is not acceptable, but when tempers are flying, some people have a hard time controlling their actions.

Unfortunately, that does not make the criminal charges any less real. If you are facing charges for domestic violence or spousal abuse, the actions of a few angry fights could change the rest of your life. It is important to find a lawyer who will help protect your freedom.

Consequences of Domestic Violence Convictions

Most domestic violence cases are two-fold. In addition to the domestic violence charges, you may also need to respond to Protection from Abuse orders. If convicted, you can never possess a firearm again. This law could be detrimental to people who are in the army or law enforcement, or people who hunt recreation ally.
