Experienced Defense Against Criminal Sexual Allegations

Second-degree sexual assault occurs when one person forces another to engage in unwanted touching, kissing or intercourse. Charges will be elevated to first-degree aggravated sexual assault if the crime involved a minor, it resulted in significant injury, if there is a blood relationship between the victim and the defendant, if the assault occurred during the commission of certain other crimes or if there was a weapon involved. Whether you are facing sexual assault or aggravated sexual assault charges, I have the skill and experience to defend you against the charges. Count on me for aggressive representation in sex crimes involving:

  • Rape or sexual assault
  • Aggravated sexual assault

  • Sexual harassment
  • Child molestation
  • Prostitution or solicitation of prostitution
  • Child pornography

  • Lewdness

I will help you develop a strong defense and work hard to get the charges against you reduced or dropped. As your lawyer, you will never have to wonder what is going on with your case.
