If you have been accused of committing a sex crime in California, you know that you have already been served a punishment as a result of the charges alone. You might have worked your entire life at building a good reputation in your community only to have accusations of a sex crime turn you into some kind of monster.
What’s worse is that if you are convicted, you can end up facing a very serious sentence and be required to register as a convicted sex offender for the rest of your life. Needless to say, the stakes are very high after being accused of a sex crime, and you have every reason to be scared.
The good news is that by finding the right criminal defense lawyer to take on your case, you can ensure that your rights are protected and that the truth prevails. The two criminal defense lawyers at our firm have more than 25 years of combined experience representing clients in cases similar to yours, including sexual assault, sexual battery, statutory rape and pornography charges.
We understand that the charges you face are serious and have the potential to change your life forever, no matter if you are an adult or a juvenile. With each case we take on, we carefully examine the facts involved, digging far beyond what is contained in the police report, to build the best possible defense for our client.
We then counsel our clients on whether it may be more beneficial to accept a plea bargain or take the case to trial, which we are more than willing to do. We understand that when accusations of sexual misconduct are involved, your reputation has already been tarnished and your future is on the line. That’s why we do everything we can to minimize the effect this charge has on your life.
