Sex Crimes Lawyer In Philadelphia

Philadelphia Sex Crimes Lawyer

Being accused of any sex crime can be difficult, frustrating, and hard to process. In many cases, the mere allegation can ruin family relationships, alienate friends, and even cause you to get fired. Many times, you won't have anywhere to turn to because even the people who support you will turn their backs on you.

When you're accused of misconduct, you need to know the facts, the law, and make sure you are in good hands.

Any Sex Crime allegation, if proven in court, can carry very serious consequences. These consequences can range from county jail time to state prison, and perhaps even federal jail time.

Under the Pennsylvania code, if you have been accused of Sexual Misconduct, you can be charged with: Rape, Statutory Sexual Assault, Involuntary Deviate Sexual Intercourse, Sexual Assault, Institutional Sexual Assault, and/or Aggravated Indecent Assault.

If you are unfortunate enough to be accused of possessing or distributing child pornography, you could be facing serious federal charges and very significant jail time. The federal guidelines call for long jail sentences, even if you've never been in trouble before. Furthermore, federal prosecutors are extremely aggressive and have significant resources.

All of these crimes carry significant jail time or consequences. Even when you've only been charged in state court with a misdemeanor, pleading or being found guilty can trigger Megan's Law, requiring you to register for ten (10) years, or in worse cases, for the rest of your life.

Should I Consult a Lawyer?

If you have been charged with any of the crimes listed above, you need to contact an experienced Sex Crimes Lawyer. Consulting an attorney will help you determine what your options are and help you understand how to proceed.

There are certain Defenses A Lawyer will be able to identify in these types of cases. For example, in cases of statutory sexual assault (having sex with a minor), a mistake of age could be a defense available to you. There may even be defenses to rape, including whether someone consented to sex.

Defenses to sex crimes are very fact specific and consulting a criminal defense lawyer is the best way to make sure you don't make a mistake in court.

In cases where federal prosecutors are involved, it is important to consult someone who has federal court experience and knows policies, procedures, and has had prior dealings with the U.S. Attorney's Office.
