The mere allegation that an individual committed a sex offense can be life-altering. Few crimes trigger more public outcry and command more media coverage than sex offenses.
At McCarthy Lebit, we understand the serious nature of these offenses and provide our clients with a skilled and aggressive defense.
Typically, our clients charged with a sex offense have no prior criminal history and little experience with how the criminal justice system operates. Clients are surprised to learn that one person’s word against another’s can provide enough evidence for the filing of criminal charges.
In order to effectively combat allegations of sex crimes and build a defense, we utilize private investigators, computer forensic examiners, and medical professionals. These types of cases involve a defendant’s colleagues, family members, or friends, and thus, a successful defense requires an ability to navigate people’s sensitivities in the collection of exculpatory evidence.
We are particularly skilled at uncovering evidence that is favorable for our client and that law enforcement investigators never even looked for, let alone identified.
Examples of sex offenses that we defend include:
- Sexual Battery
- Unlawful Sexual Conduct with a Minor
- Gross Sexual Imposition
