Discreet Sex Crime Defense Lawyers
"Sex crimes" is an umbrella term used to describe a wide variety of criminal sexual conduct. Sex offenses are much easier to prosecute than they are to prove, because too often people want to believe the victim would not make a false allegation. Cases involving sexual assault, child sexual abuse, and date rape are commonly built on circumstantial evidence, often the police and prosecutors are simply taking the word of the alleged victim over the word of the accused perpetrator.
While recent advances in technology, such as DNA testing, can exclude suspects, it cannot show with 100% certainty that someone is guilty. Our attorneys have extensive experience handling a wide variety of criminal cases involving sex crimes. Among the crimes a person may be charged with are:
- Sexual assault
- Violation of sex offender registration requirements
