Protecting You From Devastating Criminal Charges
There are few crimes as damaging to your reputation or your future as a sex offense. You could face a lengthy prison sentence for something you didn’t even know was a crime, such as taking a picture of your underage girlfriend with your cellphone.
If you are accused of a sex crime on the Internet or a cellphone network, you have the right to remain silent. At no time in your life is this right more important. Before you discuss the charges with anyone else, contact our lawyers. Nothing you could say to police will help your case, and you could make statements that could damage certain defenses.
When you are facing consequences such as prison, the stigma of a sex crime conviction and possible lifetime registration as a sex offender, it is important to put your case in the hands of an experienced defense attorney as soon as possible.
