Rape, sexual battery, prostitution, solicitation, molestation, indecent exposure and sexual battery are all examples of sex crimes. If you or a loved one has been accused of committing a sex crime, you should be aware that Chicago law enforcement officials and prosecuting attorneys take sex crimes extremely seriously, and usually seek the heaviest possible penalties.
Thankfully, we have a number of former prosecutors on our team, which allows us to have a direct insight into how the prosecution will prepare their case. This unique perspective also allows us to be able to find weaknesses in the evidence and case against you in order to build an aggressive defense that has a better chance of achieving a case dismissal, reduced charge or acquittal at trial. We have had extensive experience and success defending clients who are facing sex crimes charges, and we fully understand the impact a sex crimes conviction will have on your life.
Just an allegation that you have committed a sex crime is enough to ruin your reputation, destroy your family and forever leave you with the stigma of a sex offender. Should you be convicted of a sex crime, you could be facing fines, prison time and it is usually mandatory that you register as a sex offender. Once you are registered as a sex offender, your actions and whereabouts will be continuously monitored and your freedoms will be heavily restricted. You will also find it difficult to seek gainful employment and to interact with family, friends and loved ones.
If you are under investigation or facing sex crimes charges, you will want an attorney who is committed to helping you fight for your rights, and is dedicated to seeing that you get the aggressive representation you deserve.
