Sex-Related Crimes Fairfax

Fairfax Sex Crimes Defense Lawyer

Aggressive and Experienced Criminal Defense

For more than twenty years, I have represented individuals accused of committing sexual offenses in Washington D.C. area and Federal courts with a remarkable rate of success. Sex crimes include possession of child pornography, digital sex crimes and enticement, rape, sexual assault, , prostitution,  and craigslist or Backpage  sex crime issues. If you have been arrested for a sex crime, or have been accused of one, you are urged to contact a lawyer to provide you with the information you need and inform you of your rights.

A person accused of a sex crime needs an experienced attorney.  Once convicted, a sex offender can be marked for life. Conviction of this type of crime can be more serious than any other kind of criminal conviction. Long prison terms are normal, even for simple possession of child pornography. After prison, an offender’s name, address and photograph can be posted on the Internet and publicized by the police. A person convicted of a sex offense is limited in the kinds of jobs he can hold and where he can live. Even conviction of a sexual misdemeanor will affect you the rest of your life.

If you are investigated or being charged in Fairfax or Prince William County with any sex related crime, it is vital to hire an experienced attorney to protect your rights and, if necessary take your case to trial. Pleading guilty to a sex crime is often a terrible idea.
