Sex Crimes

Ohio Sexual Assault

Perhaps, more than any other crime, the stigma and scrutiny that comes with allegations of sex crimes make it vital to have experienced criminal defense legal representation. A sex crime is a serious allegation with severe punishment, including possible registration as a sex offender.

If you have been arrested for a sex crime, it is important that you maintain your constitutional right to remain silent and contact our office immediately.

Ohio Sexual Assault Defense

Some of the ways a person can be charged for a sex crime include:

  • Violent sex crimes, sexual abuse and sexual assault, including rape and molestation.
  • Sexual battery
  • Gross sexual imposition
  • Public indecency
  • Lewd conduct
  • Exploitation of minors
  • Internet crimes, such as child pornography and online solicitation

Often a person charged with a sexual assault faces these charges due to false and/or mistaken allegations. If a child is involved, the public has a natural tendency to assume guilt regardless of the prosecution’s actual evidence. This is where our firm can help.

We will thoroughly review all evidence, statements and witnesses and demonstrate flaws in the prosecution’s case. We will aggressively pursue every possible avenue of defense, while doing everything we can to protect your good name and keep your name out of the media, especially in the case of sexual battery charges where you are facing accusations in the context of your job.

Our office will explore all possible solutions, including trial, reaching plea agreements, reductions in sentences and alternatives to incarceration. If we are unable to avoid an acquittal, we will pursue possible solutions, including reaching plea agreements, reductions in sentences and alternatives to incarceration.
