Consequences Of A Sex Crime Conviction
Being convicted of a sexual offense can have a disastrous effect on your life and your future. In addition to fines and jail time, you could be required to register as a sex offender and endure the stigma of the conviction for the rest of your life. We understand what is at stake when someone is charged with a sexual offense. For that reason, we take a comprehensive approach to investigating the case, analyzing the strengths and weaknesses of the evidence against you, and developing and presenting defenses.
Be Prepared For A Legal Battle
The profound consequences of a sex offense conviction make it imperative that you have a dedicated criminal defense attorney in your corner from the outset. Even before charges are filed, a skilled criminal defense attorney can begin preparing a defense. Possible defense strategies that may apply in your case include: innocence, consent and lack of evidence.
Through our exhaustive preparation and precharge investigation, we can often gain leverage in plea negotiations. However, for many individuals charged with sex offenses, no plea bargain is going to be acceptable. Instead, they will need an aggressive advocate who is willing to take the case to trial in order to clear their name. At Engle, Kauffman & VanHorn, P.C., we know that skilled cross-examination at trial is essential to point out inconsistent testimony by the complainant and undermine the prosecution’s case. We are prepared to put our zealous approach to work for you and pursue the most favorable outcome possible.
