If you are found with even just a few child pornography images on your computer, you can face serious consequences which include sex crime registration. We will fight to help you avoid jail and stay off the registration list.
Even a relatively minor unwanted touching can result in a criminal sexual assault charge which can lead to sex crime registration if not properly defended. These cases are defensible and we have been successful winning dismissals.
We believe strongly that these are minor, almost victimless offenses. We have developed effective legal strategies to protect your clean record, avoid registration and keep you out of jail. These cases are often misunderstandings that can be cleared up before trial.
