St. Louis Sex Crimes Defense Lawyer

Sex crimes charges are different from any other type of criminal charge. The mere allegation of a sex crime could cost you your job, your community reputation and even your family. A sex crime conviction may result in significant penalties, including the possibility of imprisonment, probation, court ordered treatment and registration as a sex offender.

Your Dedicated Advocate

Prosecutors often take a very aggressive approach in sex crimes cases. If you have been arrested for statutory rape, sexual assault, Internet solicitation of a minor or another sex crimes charge, you need an advocate on your side - someone who will take time to investigate the facts of your case, identify defenses that may be available to you and build a strong case on your behalf:

  • Have you been falsely accused?
  • Should you have been charged with a lesser offense?
  • Should key evidence or an admission be suppressed due to constitutional violations?
  • Does the prosecution have enough evidence to prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt?

You can be confident that I will explore these and other questions which are vital to your defense. As your dedicated advocate, I am committed to the protection of your freedom, record and rights.

In addition to helping people who have been charged with a sex crime, I also help people who feel they may be the target of a criminal investigation. If you have been questioned by police or feel you may soon become the target of an investigation, contact me immediately to protect your rights.
