Sex Crime

Sex offenses are among the most serious felony crimes in North Carolina. Sex crime cases often generate publicity and strong public emotions, and prosecutors are under intense pressure to gain convictions.  You can’t wait on the prosecutor’s office to uncover “the truth” and leave you alone--the prosecutor is seeking to convict you. Sex crime charges are too serious not to have the best representation as soon as possible.  If you are facing sex crime charges, you are facing a lengthy prison sentence as an unpopular inmate, and even without such a sentence, you could still end up having to register as a sex offender for 30 years.

When you are facing the charges of having committed a sex crime, no matter what the specific allegations may be, you need strong and effective legal representation, and you need it now.  The sooner you contact us, the sooner we can start to defend you and protect your reputation. Often we can present evidence on your behalf to the prosecutor assigned to your case to help exonerate you before any final decision by the prosecutor’s office even gets made.  We can also assist you as you deal with the Department of Social Services and Child Protective Services.
