Sex Crimes Defense Lawyer in Parsippany
Qualified Legal Counsel You Can Depend On
A sex crime is an illegal act that occurs when an individual engages in an inappropriate sexual act in order to receive sexual satisfaction, or to provide it.
There are a wide variety of specific charges that can be categorized as sex crimes, including:
- Child pornography
- Child endangerment
- Criminal sexual contact
- Sexual assault
- Aggravated sexual assault
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 sex crimes attorney can help devise a strong defense that could provide compelling evidence that 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.
