Sex Crimes Must Be Taken Seriously, a Future is at Stake

  • Sexual battery, also known as rape, is the oral, anal or vaginal penetration by one person to a non-consenting individual by use of force. It is important to know that consent is not a defense when the victim is below a certain age.
  • Unlawful Sexual Activity with a Certain Minor is a consensual or non-consensual sexual act with a minor. The offense is driven by the age of the offender and the age of the victim. Other factors that may contribute to the degree of the offense and the range of possible penalties are: whether the victim is mentally or physically handicapped; whether the victim was injured; whether the act was completed; and whether there was actual penetration. A capital sexual battery is punishable by mandatory life in prison if convicted as charged.

Prosecutors often “Get it Wrong”…

Should your case proceed to trial, you can expect that the State Attorney’s office or other prosecuting agency has carefully built what it believes to be a strong case. Our office is equipped with the knowledge and skills to aggressively defend sex crime charges. Your defense begins the day you hire us. We will immediately, using investigators and our own independent experts, begin to build your defense.

The prosecutors often “get it wrong” and we have been defending these types of charges long enough to know this. It is the prosecutor’s inclination to believe the stories told by alleged victims and it is our job to expose deceitful motivations behind false accusations (if this is indeed suspected in your case).
