Sex Crimes Defense Attorneys
Just being accused of a sex offense is enough to damage a person's reputation or career. An arrest and/or criminal charges often cause the public to assume that the defendant is guilty, regardless of the facts of the case. Needless to say, a conviction will permanently change a defendant's life.
Many sex crime convictions require lifetime registration on the Missouri sex offender registry and national registry. Sex offender registration will affect your ability to get jobs, find housing and get custody of your children. If you have been accused of or charged with a sex crime, it is critical that you speak with a criminal defense attorney immediately. We can take action to protect your rights and reputation.
While each case is unique, we have successfully obtained jury acquittals on these charges in many of the surrounding counties. In 2013, we took a trial judge to the court of appeals and got a case thrown out without having to go to trial.
You Must Have An Aggressive Defense
With so much at stake, you cannot afford to trust your defense to an inexperienced lawyer. Our attorneys have more than 50 years of combined experience. We are also well-known for our skill as trial lawyers. Sex crime cases go to trial more often than nonviolent crimes, so it is critical that your attorney has the experience and reputation to protect you at trial.
We represent people charged with a range of sex crimes, including:
- Rape and statutory rape
- Child molestation
- Online solicitation
- Internet sex crimes, including possession of child pornography
- Prostitution and solicitation
We will investigate the case and carefully examine the evidence. When appropriate, we challenge the admissibility of the evidence and argue for it to be excluded. You can rely on the firm to conduct a thorough investigation and determine the facts of the case.
