Sex Crime Attorney

Our Los Angeles sex crime attorneys are experienced in all sex crime matters. We pride ourselves on providing zealous yet affordable representation at all stages of a sex crime prosecution. No matter how cumbersome the process and serious the charges, we handle every case with a zeal, steadfastness, and creativity that strengthens our position with the prosecution and changes the posture and merits of the case in favor of our clients. We conscientiously examine and evaluate every case, and devise defenses and strategies specific to the details and nuances particular to the case. Often, prosecutors have an unrealistic assessment of their own case, which allows them to propose dispositions and outcomes that are far too draconian and unwarranted by the merits of the case. At the core of our role as sex crime criminal defense attorneys is illuminating the strengths and weaknesses of a case for the prosecution, and to then steadfastly pursue an outcome that is most lenient and favorable to our clients.

What makes our attorneys effective advocates in all sex crime cases?

When you are charged with a sex crime, hiring an attorney who understands the complexities and nuances of your case, and who can then use those nuances and complexities to negotiate a favorable outcome in your case is crucial. Whether you choose to go to trial or enter a plea bargain, our Los Angeles Sex Crime attorneys place your case in the best bargaining position possible. What that means is that, from the very beginning of the case,our sex crime attorneys carefully identify and articulate any and all factors that they can then use as leverage to negotiate the most lenient and favorable outcome on your behalf.

It is not enough for an attorney to negotiate successfully on behalf of the client. An attorney also has to creatively and zealously litigate a case should a plea bargain or negotiated disposition not be possible in a given case. Our Los Angeles sex crime attorneys conscientiously explore any and all substantive and procedural aspects of your case, and zealously litigate those aspects to safeguard your constitutional rights and preserve any and all defenses in your particular case.

Some attorneys are masterful negotiators, but reluctant to take a case to trial. Other attorneys are zealous trial lawyers but unwilling or unable to effectively negotiate. Our sex crime attorneys are excellent negotiators as well as zealous trial lawyers who will passionately fight for you at trial should they exhaust all attempts at negotiating a plea bargain that is best the possible outcome in your case.

How your attorney is perceived by a judge or prosecutor can facilitate or curtail his or her ability to negotiate effectively on your behalf. Therefore, it is crucial that your attorney is known by judges and prosecutors as professional, zealous, and as one who conducts himself with absolute integrity. Our Los Angeles sex crime attorneys are respected by judges and prosecutors for their utmost professionalism, zealous advocacy, and steadfastness.

Many attorneys have a “let’s wait and see approach,” which means that they do not engage in any substantive effort on the case until and unless new developments take place within the course of the case. This “wait and see” approach places all the power and control in the hands of the prosecution, thus placing the defendant in a compromised position. Our Los Angeles sex crime attorneys take immediate charge of your case. From the very inception of your case, our Los Angeles sex crime attorneys conduct their own investigations of the case, and uncover any and all facts and nuances that will ultimately allow for a more favorable outcome. Rather than waiting for the prosecutor to propose a deal to us, we propose to the prosecutor what we believe is the best possible outcome for our client.

Many law firms and lawyers use appearance attorneys to handle your matter in court. You deserve the peace of mind to know that the attorney whom you hired is the one working on your case, and that you do not need to jump through several hoops to speak with us. Our Los Angeles sex crime attorneys personally and directly handle your case. They are directly accessible to you at all times.

What are the stages of a sex crime prosecution?

Commonly asked Questions

Not necessarily. Not all sex crime offenses require registration. Even if the facts of the case are not in your favor, a skilled criminal defense attorney will skillfully and steadfastly negotiate on your behalf to reduce the charges against you to an offense that will not require you to register as a sex offender. Whether your attorney can convince the prosecutor to agree to such reduction depends on the severity of your charges, the exact circumstances of the alleged offense, any substantive or procedural challenges for the prosecution, and any mitigation factors such as your lack of a criminal record, standing in the community, and overall accomplishments.

Not necessarily. In deciding whether jail or prison time is warranted by a particular offense, the prosecution considers several factors such as the exact nature and severity of your conduct in the alleged offense, your criminal record, the type of life that you have lived, and your overall accomplishments. These factors can help a prosecutor determine whether you are likely to reoffend and whether prison or jail time will therefore serve a deterring purpose. It is up to your criminal defense attorney to garner any and all mitigation factors on your case and built a compelling mitigation packet that will present you as an excellent candidate for probation.

Not everybody who makes an allegation of sexual abuse or assault is telling the truth. People make false accusations for a myriad of reasons, such as exacting revenge against a former romantic partner, feeling wronged or diminished by what a sexual partner did or said, or gaining leverage in a divorce or child custody battle. People also embellish or exaggerate what actually happened to them, so that the end result is a false accusation. The job of law enforcement is to avoid jumping to a conclusion, and to thoroughly investigate an accusation for its credibility and veracity. After all, police officers are supposed to be truth seekers. Unfortunately, the mission of law enforcement officers to seek the truth has become increasingly compromised, especially in the area of sexual assault cases. In today’s social climate, it has become the norm to take at face value whatever an alleged victim of sexual assault claims. Police officers and prosecutors alike increasingly fail to apply the required level of scrutiny to allegations of sexual assault, when investigation and scrutiny are the fundamental tenets of their mission as truth seekers and ensurers of justice. For this reason, it is imperative that you have on your side a zealous criminal defense attorney who will tenaciously hold the police and prosecution to their task of seeking the truth.

Absolutely. Without an attorney, you are completely vulnerable to the intimidating moves and tactics of law enforcement. If you are represented by an attorney, the investigating officers have to back off and refrain from communicating with you without your attorney’s permission. In essence, your attorney can serve as a layer of protection or buffer between you and law enforcement. Depending on the particulars of your case, your attorney can also start mounting a defense on your behalf. For example, there may be witnesses whose testimonies need to be immediately secured, or evidence that needs to be immediately preserved. Do not assume that law enforcement will seek and preserve any and all evidence that points to your evidence. Though that is what is required of law enforcement, only your attorney can be trusted with accomplishing it.
