Protect Your Future When Faced With Sex Crime Charges

No other crimes carry the same damaging stigma that sex crimes do. Even an accusation can do lasting harm to many areas of your life. However, you should not let this fact make you simply throw in the towel after an accusation or an arrest. You deserve the best defense you can find, for the sake of your career and the protection of your hopes and dreams. After an arrest or when you first learn of an investigation, turn to a trusted defender with experience and passion for protecting people’s constitutional rights.

No matter what happened or what your point of view is, the Constitution lays out your rights such as:

  • The right to a speedy trial by an impartial jury
  • The right to be informed of criminal charges and to face the accuser
