Parsippany Sex Crimes Defense Lawyer
Defense for Sex Crime Charges in New Jersey
A sex crime is an illegal act that occurs when an individual engages in

categorized as sex crimes, including:
Although law enforcement and prosecution may work together to arrest and
prosecute those who have been accused of sex crimes, it does not mean
all cases brought to trial are lost causes.
A knowledgeable Parsippany criminal attorney can help devise a strong defense
that could provide compelling evidence which can minimize penalties and
even eliminate charges entirely.
Penalties for Conviction of Sex Offenses
The penalties for sex crime convictions vary greatly depending on important
factors such as the specific charge, age of the victim, whether physical
violence was threatened or committed in the act, how many times the illegal
act took place, and many others. Those who are found guilty of a sex crime
may face little in terms of penalties, or may face years and even life
in prison in cases of rape.
Despite the potentially devastating penalties, however, there are many
viable strategies for defense that seek to establish doubt by challenging
evidence, exposing incorrect investigation and arrest procedures, focusing
on the character of the victim and many others. Sex crime accusations
should be aggressively defended if you hope to avoid permanent damage
to your life and future.
