Aggressive Criminal Defense Attorney Protects Clients’ Rights in Sex Offense Cases Throughout New Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania

Penalties for committing a sex offense in New Jersey are particularly harsh, and conviction will carry serious consequences that last a lifetime.

Tenacious Criminal Defense Attorneys at the Davis Law Firm Represent Clients Accused of All Types of Sex Offenses in Mercer County, New Jersey

At the Davis Law Firm, LLC, our criminal defense lawyers advocate on behalf of clients who have been accused of sex offenses, including those accused of:

  • Criminal sexual contact,
  • Aggravated sexual contact,
  • Sexual assault,
  • Aggravated sexual assault,
  • Lewd behavior,
  • Child molestation,
  • Sexual abuse,
  • Rape and date rape,
  • Statutory rape,
  • Internet sex crimes,
  • Sexual harassment, and
  • Failure to satisfy registration requirements after conviction for a sex offense.

It is important to remember that in some of these cases, a sex offense can be charged even if the sexual contact alleged was consensual if the alleged victim was a minor at the time, and the accused was at least four years older. Conviction for these statutory rape crimes can be just as damaging as conviction for a nonconsensual sex offense, and experienced legal counsel is key to minimizing the damage that can be caused to your life.

FAQ: How can a criminal defense lawyer help me if I have been accused of a sex offense in Mercer County? An experienced criminal defense lawyer can help you understand what to expect throughout the criminal process in New Jersey. Our lawyers can advise you as to your constitutional rights prior to arrest, including your right to refrain from self-incriminating statements and your protections from illegal searches and seizures of property. We can help ensure that you be released from jail on bail, or argue that you should be released on your own recognizance so the expense of bail is avoided if possible. As the prosecution investigates your case, we too will investigate to uncover any available exonerating evidence that can be used to establish your innocence, and can negotiate with the prosecution to obtain reduced or dropped charges in some cases. We will fight tirelessly to help avoid the time and embarrassment of trial if at all possible, and will advocate vigorously on your behalf if trial is unavoidable.

FAQ: What defenses can be used against an allegation of a sex offense in New Jersey? Available defenses will depend upon the specific facts of your case, but often include providing an alibi that establishes you were somewhere else at the time the alleged crime took place, or that the victim mistakenly identified you. We can also argue that the sexual contact was consensual in some cases, or fight to establish that the prosecution did not provide adequate proof to establish your guilt.
