Protecting The Rights Of People Charged With Sex Crimes

Conviction on a sex charge may be the worst criminal conviction, because you will likely be placed on a sex offender registry. Nothing is more humiliating or so destructive to career, family and relationships.

These are some of the offenses we defend against in Olmsted County and southeast Minnesota:

  • Rape, statutory rape, sexual battery and sexual assault
  • Computer sex crimes, including pornography involving minors
  • Traveling to meet a minor
  • Lewd and lascivious molestation
  • Child molestation
  • Prostitution and solicitation
  • Harassment by sexting

A common defensive strategy in a sex crime case is to show that the evidence is inconclusive. Many charges are built on "he said/she said" circumstances. Vile accusations are sometimes made out of spite. Sometimes offenses occur, but the person charged with the crime is not the person who committed it.

Asserting Your Rights Every Step Of The Way
