Protecting Your Options When Facing Sex Crime Charges
As a seasoned trial attorney, I know how to present an effective defense in court across the range of sex crime charges. Better yet, my thorough understanding of the criminal justice system from the inside can give you the opportunity to achieve dismissal or reduction of felony sex offense allegations at an early stage of the case.
I give my clients sound advice about the factors that will guide the critical choice between accepting a plea offer or taking a defense to trial – the government’s ability to meet its burden of proof, the likely consequences of a guilty plea to any of various sex crime charges, and the likelihood that I can gather the evidence necessary to shake the prosecution’s confidence in the case against you.
I Offer Tough, Experience-Backed Defense
I represents clients charged with such sex offenses as:
- Sexual assault, including forcible rape
- Date rape or acquaintance rape
- Statutory rape
- Consensual sex between minors
- Sexual exploitation of a minor such as keeping nude photos of a friend on a cell phone
- Indecent liberties
Presenting an effective defense to a sex crime charge will often depend on your lawyer’s ability to investigate and develop facts that can flesh out the bare-bones allegations in a charging document or police report. Many situations charged as sex crimes involve people who know each other (or their parents) and who are angry about a failed relationship or one that never got off the ground.
I am an experienced defense attorney, defending against individuals facing both state and federal offenses. I am also a former assistant district attorney for the state of North Carolina. My experience working on both sides of the law is a great advantage for those facing serious sex offenses.
