Sex Crimes

Sex Crimes In Columbus And Central OhioSex offenses in Ohio carry a unique stigma and consequences.  Simply being accused of a sex crime can result in significant harm to your reputation, even if you are not convicted.  A conviction for a sex offense may result in a lengthy prison term, registering as a sex offender for 15 years to life, and the stigma of being known as a sex offender.  If you have been accused of a sex offense, you face an uphill battle, and you need an experienced criminal defense attorney to help you. 
Defense Lawyer For Ohio Sex CrimesI have been practicing criminal defense and representing clients charged with these types of offenses since 1997.  Over the years, I have seen an increasing number of charges involving pornography and importuning with the widespread use of the internet.  Handling this type of case requires specific knowledge and experience with issues of technology and the law.  I have that knowledge and experience.  I am not reluctant to defend clients against allegations of sex crimes:  it is my job to represent you, not judge you.  I have helped many clients from all walks of life resolve these cases favorably.
Strategies For Defending Allegations Of Sex OffensesSex crimes and the harm associated with them are rightly condemned by our community.  On the other hand, the potential exists for a person to be the victim of exaggerated or false accusations.  With many sex offenses, allegations can be made by anyone, against anyone.  The role of a criminal defense lawyer in these situations is to ensure the client receives fair treatment in the justice system, is not punished without proof beyond a reasonable doubt, and is not punished excessively. 

Effective defense in these matters requires a thorough investigation of the accusation, the accuser, the witnesses, and the forensic evidence.  It may also require a network of professionals and experts.  In addition to experience with these types of investigations, a defense lawyer should have experience negotiating agreements in serious cases, as well as sharp trial skills in the event negotiations do not produce an acceptable outcome.
