Generally, following a sex crime conviction, sex offender registration is a part of the penalties. Of course there are exceptions and with a proper defense, you could avoid conviction and registering as a sex offender. We can help fight to keep you off the registry. To do so, we use defenses such as:
- Actual innocence of the crime
- Consent from the alleged victim
- Accuser Motivation
- Tainted evidence
If you are innocent of the crime, we can use your alibi as well as challenging evidence in order to prove your innocence. All too often the accuser has exterior motives in claiming that a sex crime occurred. For example, they may make false charges in order to cover up their act of consensual sex to protect their reputation. Another example is if parents are in the midst of divorce or family law disputes, false accusations often come up in order to gain advantage over the other parent in court.
We can help you suppress evidence from illegal searches or evidence that was obtained illegally. The key is taking immediate action in order to avoid having to register as a sex offender.
You are at risk of this consequence in any of the following cases:
- Sexual Assault/ Battery
- Child Pornography
