Few crimes are more intimate, difficult, or stigmatizing than sex crimes. Many times, the allegations are untrue and inconsistent with the alleged offender’s background, character, or lifestyle. They are alleged based on exaggerations, lies, or deception, often with ulterior motives or mistaken identity, misunderstandings, and more. Whatever the reasons for the allegations or the circumstances surrounding them, the mere accusation of a sex crime can lead to devasting and life-changing outcomes for the accused. These can include divorce, loss of friends, job loss, and social isolation, among other collateral consequences. If convicted, annual sex offender registration may be required, which is the most stigmatizing aspect of a conviction.

A sex crime is any offense that is sexually related. These crimes can span from soliciting a prostitute to engaging in what others may consider “lewd” conduct.
Sex crimes can include both misdemeanors and serious felonies. Penalties can range from jail time to prison sentences, heavy fines, long periods of probation, loss of gun rights, mandatory sex offender registration, and restrictions on expungement of criminal records.
At DCD Law, we believe the earlier you involve us in allegations of a sex crime, the more effective we can be. It is best not to wait until formal charges have been filed. By being proactive and bringing our attorney onto your case, we may be able to take many actions that could lead to your case being dropped, from negotiation with law enforcement who jump to conclusions and ask questions later. And proof of your innocence. Through our investigations, we may uncover credibility problems with the case, witness testimony that falls apart, and other weaknesses that may cause the prosecutor to drop the matter.
In all of these matters, we know what actions to take and will provide the counsel you need to make decisions about your case. Whether negotiating a plea deal or filing motions to suppress evidence, our attorney will take the right steps to help you arrive at the best possible result.
