In the Commonwealth of Virginia and throughout the country, sex crimes are taken very seriously by law enforcement officials and the prosecution. Even an accusation or if you are merely under investigation for a sex-related offense can lead to your reputation being tarnished, regardless of the circumstances.
The exact consequences you could face for a sex crime conviction depend on the circumstances of the alleged offense. My goal as your Fredericksburg sex crime defense attorney is to gather sufficient evidence and build an intelligent strategy on your behalf. I work to get the charges dismissed whenever possible, or in the alternative to reduce penalties and consequences.
If you are convicted of a sex crime offense, you could be facing many years in jail or prison, large fines as well as a variety of other penalties. This could include mandatory restitution, counseling, probation, and you will likely be required to register yourself on the the Virginia Sex Offender and Crimes Against Minors Registry.
Sex crime cases can be very emotional and upsetting. Your future, freedom, and reputation are all at risk and it is imperative that you retain competent legal counsel right away. I have more than 10 years of experience defending sex offense cases in Fredericksburg and the surrounding areas.
I understand exactly how stressful being accused of a sex crime offense can be, and want you to know that you will be treated with respect and discretion.
