Types of Sex Crimes

Sex crimes encompass a broad range of offenses, each carrying severe implications. Here are some of the charges we handle:

  • Sexual Assault
  • Sex Trafficking
  • Lewd Conduct
  • Rape
  • Child Pornography
  • Sexual Battery
  • Indecent Exposure
  • Child Molestation

Convictions for these crimes can result in life-altering consequences, including mandatory registration as a sex offender, which makes your personal information publicly accessible. While not every sex crime mandates this registration, judges have the discretion to impose it if they believe the crime involved sexual compulsion or gratification.

Potential Penalties for Sex Crime Convictions

The penalties for sex crime convictions vary widely based on the nature of the crime. If violence was involved, the consequences can be especially severe, ranging from several years to decades in prison. The use of a firearm during the commission of a sex crime can lead to sentencing enhancements, including life imprisonment.

For nonviolent sex crimes, charges may be classified as misdemeanors, which typically carry lighter sentences. For instance, an 18-year-old charged with statutory rape for a consensual relationship with a 16-year-old might face a misdemeanor charge, potentially resulting in a maximum sentence of one year in jail.

Building a Strong Defense

At Simmons Wagner, LLP, we understand that every case is unique and requires a tailored defense strategy. Here are some potential defenses we might employ:

  • Challenging the Allegations: We may argue that the alleged act did not occur or that you were not involved.
  • Consent: In cases where consent is a viable defense, we can argue that the encounter was consensual.
  • Investigative Support: We often hire private investigators to uncover evidence that supports your defense.

Our goal is to thoroughly analyze all evidence against you and develop a robust defense strategy. We leverage our extensive experience and resources to challenge the prosecution’s case and seek the best possible outcome for you.
