Sex Crime Lawyer

Sex offenses is a broad category and the offenses range from prostitution, solicitation of prostitution, public lewdness, obscenity, sexual assault, indecency with a child and possession of child pornography. Convictions for sex offenses often result in stiff fines and prison sentences. A convicted person may be required to register as a sex offender for life, damaging his reputation and making it hard for him to find housing and work. It is vital for someone so charged to obtain tough and experienced legal defense. No matter the circumstances of a charge, the most important factor in the outcome of a criminal case is the competence and dedication of the sexual assault lawyer.

Types of Charges

We are dedicated to the principle that a person is innocent until proven guilty. We take seriously our responsibility to aggressively defend our client’s innocence. When we take on a case, we get to know our client and learn the circumstances of his case. We are fully experienced in all possible defenses including consent, entrapment and misidentification. When entering the case after an arrest, we contact the prosecutor and work hard to have the charges dropped or reduced. If at all possible we seek to dispose of the matter in a discrete manner. Below are some of the types of sex crimes cases that we experienced at handling:

We are prepared to go to trial for you with a Sex Crime Lawyer!

Nothing is more terrifying than being falsely accused of rape. This is especially so if a child has made the accusation. Whether the accuser is a girl or boy, sexual assault involving a child is considered especially heinous by society. Law enforcement, Child Protective Services (CPS) and the prosecutor’s office tend to err on the side of caution when deciding whether to file a sexual assault case. You need to hire a sexual assault lawyer.

False Accusations

You may have learned that there is a warrant for your arrest accusing you of aggravated sexual assault against a child. Or, you are about to be sued for monetary damages after an alleged sexual assault and are afraid you are about to be arrested. If there is an investigation in progress in its pre-arrest phase, Chernoff Law can monitor the investigation and prevent you from being arrested at work or in front of your neighbors or family. The best advice we can give anyone who is accused of sexual misconduct is to seek qualified criminal representation of sexual abuse lawyers. Our team believes that the American value of the presumption of innocence is often ignored in sexual assault cases. We will fight to preserve that right for you.

At trial, we vigorously present our defense and challenge the state case. We use our cross-examination skills to expose exaggerations, falsehoods and lies. It is our purpose to establish a reasonable doubt compelling acquittal of charges. We have a record of success in the defense of our clients and our goal is to achieve the best possible result.
