Have you been charged with a misdemeanor sexual offense or a felony sexual offense? If so, the charges against you can have a devastating effect on your life and the lives of your family members. If you are convicted of a sexual offense in California, you could face significant prison time, expensive fines and court fees, forced sexual offender registration, and mandatory sexual offender counseling sessions. You may be restrained from seeing your own children and other family members.
The prosecutors who handle these specialized criminal charges aggressively pursue defendants and seek a conviction at any cost. Many sexual offense cases are filed even though there may be very little evidence that can be corroborated through witness testimony or physical evidence. Regardless, once the sexual assault charges are filed, the suspect is regarded as a sexual offender and needs an experienced, effective sex crime defense attorney to protect his or her freedom.
