Sex Crimes And Sexual Assault

Maryland Sex Crime Defense Attorney

Allegations of sex crimes, including sexual assault, are given the highest priority by law enforcement agencies and prosecutors. Simply being charged with such an offense, or being investigated for such allegations, can result in a damaged reputation.

The Stakes Are High. You Need The Strongest Possible Defense.

Sex crime charges can lead to lengthy periods of incarceration, and a conviction in Maryland could lead to the stigma of being classified as a sexual predator and require public registration. In addition to sexual assault, sex offenses include charges of child pornography and the use of the internet and computers to commit crimes.

If convicted of a sex crime requiring mandatory public registration as a sexual predator or sexual offender, you could be required to resister for many years — possibly even for life. The sex offender registration requirement in Maryland is also transferrable to other states.

Rape and other sex offenses in the first, second or third degree are all felonies, and convictions for these crimes can result in lengthy prison sentences and mandatory public registration as a sex offender or sexual predator.

The law in these cases is complex, and detailed knowledge of the facts is critical to strong defense. Often an investigator is needed to help the defense lawyer prepare the best possible defense against sex crime charges.
