Sex Crime FAQ

Why am I being accused when I haven't done anything wrong?

There are many reasons why people make false allegations. It may be a confused child, a petty former partner or someone trying to cover up his or her own wrongdoing. No matter the reason, we excel at exposing and undermining false allegations to protect our clients.

When you are facing charges of a sex crime, it can seem like no one is on your side. The state, the alleged victim and even certain witnesses are all working against your best interests. We level the playing field by committing the experience and talent of our entire team to protecting you.

Will I have to register as a sex offender?

We understand that being marked as a sex offender is a frightening thought, so we do everything possible to help our clients avoid this consequence. The best way to minimize your risk of having to register is to work with an experienced defense law firm.

The arresting officer didn't read me my rights. Can the charges be dropped?

Despite what the movies say, having a case dismissed is not that simple. Often, the case will move forward. However, an experienced defense lawyer can help you raise similar issues and force the prosecution to prove its case fully under the law.

What is entrapment?

Entrapment occurs when a law enforcement officer induces a defendant to commit a crime he or she did not intend to commit before the interaction. However, entrapment is not a valid defense when the defendant intended to commit a crime and the officer simply provided a means to do so. Claims involving entrapment are sensitive and complex, requiring the skill of a knowledgeable attorney. We will help you explore the possibility of entrapment and all other available defenses to aggressively pursue your interests.

Hiring an attorney seems expensive. What guarantee do I get for my money?

No attorney can guarantee results. In addition to being unethical, it is simply impossible when so many factors go into determining the outcome of a case. Just as no doctor can promise that a procedure will be successful, no attorney can promise a certain outcome. However, working with an attorney you trust is an essential first step in securing the best result possible. We can guarantee that we will do everything possible within the bounds of the law to succeed on your behalf.
