What to do

Sex offenses, especially those involving children, can result in harsh penalties if you are convicted of the crime.  If you or someone you know has or may be charged with a sex crime a qualified sex crimes lawyer should be contacted immediately.  No information should ever be given out to anybody without the presence of a lawyer. Speaking with law enforcement before consulting a lawyer can be a huge mistake even if you think it is the right thing to do.

There are many directions a case can go. To protect your rights and fight in your defense, a sex crimes lawyer is a necessary part of the process to ensure  the best outcome for your future.
