Defense Against Accusations Of Sexual Misconduct

Allegations of sexual misconduct cases can be emotionally draining for all involved. In many cases, the family is experiencing other stresses. Divorce, DUI charges, domestic violence, unemployment and drug abuse are often the backdrop to cases involving claims of sexual misconduct.

More Than 30 Years Of Legal Experience On Your Side

The criminal defense lawyers of Sugarman & Cannon have extensive experience defending people charged with sexual misconduct. We have been providing knowledgeable and creative criminal defense representation to people for more than 30 years. With a profound grasp of the criminal defense system, we explain with detail and compassion all available options to our clients. We encourage you to contact us with your inquiry so that we can move forward with your case as soon as possible.

Sexual Misconduct Charges

Issues of sexual misconduct and domestic violence cut across all socio-economic groups. No one is immune. Our lawyers are known as empathetic and discreet when handling such sensitive cases. We urge people who suspect that they may be the target of an investigation to contact an experienced criminal defense lawyer quickly. Beginning work on your case before you are charged can make a big difference. Having knowledgeable counsel can also protect you from making damaging statements.

If you are convicted of a sexual misconduct charge, you could be facing a sentence that requires you to register for life as a sex offender. Registration may impact your employment and residence for life. Your reputation, career and personal relationships are at stake. We defend people against all sex crime charges, including:

  • Prostitution
  • Sexual assault
  • Child sexual abuse/molestation
  • Rape
  • Lewd conduct
  • Indecent exposure
  • Child pornography possession

Many of our clients have had no prior contact with the criminal justice system. We are compassionate attorneys and know that allegations of sexual misconduct can be very frightening. We carefully examine police records to make sure your constitutional rights were not violated by an illegal search of your property.
