Being accused of a sex crime, even without a conviction, can permanently damage your reputation; but being convicted of a sex crime in California can put you on the state Sex Offenders registry, make it difficult for you to find gainful employment, force you to pay heavy fines, and send you to jail or prison for years. Clearly, it is in your best interests to obtain the best possible legal help without delay if any type of sex crime charge has been filed against you.
Examples of sex crimes include: rape, date rape, statutory rape, sexual battery, prostitution, soliciting a prostitute, possession of child pornography, sexual abuse of a child, lewd conduct, and more. Only a detailed knowledge of each of these specific crimes, including the elements the prosecution must prove and the best defense strategies in each type of case, will enable a lawyer to consistently win sex crimes defense cases.
At Pasadena Criminal Attorney, we understand that many are falsely accused of sex crimes and that everyone should be provided a fair trial; thus, we do not "shy away from" these types of cases, as some other defense attorneys tend to do.
