The Defense You Deserve
Everyone charged with a crime is presumed innocent until they are proven guilty. You have the right to an attorney, the right to present evidence and witnesses, the right to a speedy trial with a public jury and the right to remain silent during questioning.
Being charged with a sex offense can have a serious impact on you and your loved ones. A sex offense conviction can mean you must register as a sex offender at a designated risk level. That designation can restrict where you are able to find housing, your internet usage or your interactions with minors. A felony conviction may result in lengthy incarceration, parole and probation, as well as fines and surcharges. That is why it is imperative to have an experienced criminal defense attorney with extensive trial experience at your side from the moment you are charged with a crime.
