Sex Offense Attorney: What You Need to Know

 A sex offense attorney is an attorney who specializes in criminal law and criminal defense. The term "sex offense" is used to describe a range of crimes, some of which are sexual. Many sexual crimes are considered felonies, while others may be misdemeanors or even infractions (similar to traffic tickets).

Why Do You Need a Sex Offense Attorney?

There are many reasons why people need a sex offense attorney. For example:

  • If you've been accused of committing a sex crime, you will need an attorney to help defend you against the allegations.
  • If you have been convicted of a sex crime, your conviction will stay on your record for life unless it's deleted. Your attorney will help you seek an expungement so that your record is cleared and does not affect your future employment opportunities or other aspects of your life.
  • If someone has falsely accused you of committing a sex crime, your attorney can help prove that the accusation isn't true and clear your name once and for all.

Types of Sex Offenses That Might Need an Attorney

Sex offenses are severe charges, and they carry very harsh penalties if convicted. You must seek the advice of an experienced sex offense attorney who can guide you through the legal process and protect your rights. Some of the reasons that might require you to hire an attorney include:

  • Sexual battery (sexual assault)
  • Child molestation or child abuse
  • Lewd or lascivious acts on a person under 16 years old
  • Indecent exposure or public nudity
  • Prostitution, solicitation for prostitution, or related crimes

Characteristics Of a Good Sex Offense Attorney

A reasonable sex offense attorney is hard to find. The good news is that there are some things you can do to increase your chances of finding an attorney who will be a good fit for your case.

First, you should know what you want from a sex offense attorney. If you are facing such charges, our office has experience representing people in cases involving sexual abuse, rape, felonious assault, and other related crimes.

However, even though we have handled hundreds of cases involving sexual offenses such as these, we don't represent people in every case. For example, we don't take cases where the alleged victim is a minor or the defendant is charged with statutory rape.

If you don't know what type of charge you're facing, let us know as much as possible about what happened to determine whether we can help and how best to proceed with your case.

How Much Does a Good Sexual Offense Attorney Cost?

The cost of hiring legal representation depends on several factors: how complex the case is; how long it will take them to get it resolved; whether or not there are multiple defendants involved; whether or not there are any appeals involved; and whether or not there is evidence that needs to be collected.

If the case goes all the way through trial, it could cost between $5,000 and $10,000—but this price could rise much higher if there are multiple defendants involved (or if there's more than one defendant).
