Sex Crimes

Sex Crime Charges in Santa Clara County and throughout Silicon Valley

There are many varieties of sex crimes. However, they all carry serious consequences. In recent years, DNA testing technology has led to the release of many imprisoned people who were falsely convicted of sex crimes. Unfortunately, that trend only highlights the fact that many people face potentially life changing charges based on false allegations. Federal and state authorities want to look tough on crime; too often, the constitutional rights of the accused are not prioritized.

When it comes to being accused of a sex crime of any type, it is important that you understand not only your rights, but also the possible consequences for waiving those rights. The things you say to police really can be used against you. Your reputation is at risk, and the stakes are simply too high to wait and see what happens. Before you speak to authorities, contact us.

Contacting highly experienced defense lawyers as soon as possible is vital to the creation of a strong defense. Almost all sex crimes convictions mandate lifetime registry as a sex offender. Child pornography charges may become federal because Internet activity may cross state or international borders. This means that federal mandatory minimums may be used.
