The mere allegation that an individual committed a sex offense can be life-altering. More than just about any other criminal act, being charged with a sex crime is an accusation that can have devastating professional and personal consequences.
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
Many of these crimes are felony offenses and, if not countered by proactive, knowledgeable counsel, can result in life-changing penalties for the accused. They may also be combined with other charges, such as cybercrimes. If you have been charged, our attorneys are ready to hear your story, assess the details of your case, and, if necessary mount an effective and dynamic defense on your behalf.Contact Us for a Free Consulation
