The Seriousness of Sex Crime Accusations

With sex crime accusations, the damage to one’s reputation begins before criminal charges are even brought. Simply being the subject of an investigation can cause severe damage to the accused’s reputation in the community. The sooner a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney advocates for your rights, the better. Joshua is ready to defend his clients against any sex crime investigation, allegations or charges, including:

  • Sexual Assault and Battery
  • Lewd or Lascivious Molestation
  • Solicitation and Prostitution-related offenses
  • Possession and Distribution of Child Pornography
  • Human Trafficking
  • Cybercrimes and Internet-based offenses

The consequences of an arrest, as well as a conviction for sex crimes are profound, and ultimately, life-changing. In addition to potential prison time and fines, individuals may be required to register as a sexual offender or sexual predator, which can have a long-lasting impact on a person’s liberty, housing, reputation, employment status and personal relationships. It is of the utmost importance to have a knowledgeable and experienced sex crimes attorney by your side throughout the process. Joshua handles investigations and criminal charges into sex crimes cases throughout the State of Florida.

Sex Charges for State and Federal Crimes

Criminal charges for sex crimes can be investigated by law enforcement and charged by Florida state or federal Prosecutors. Depending on the circumstances, certain sex crimes that cross state lines, such as internet related sex crimes, like child pornography or human trafficking, can be investigated by federal agents and prosecuted in federal court.

The distinction between state and federal sex crime charges can significantly affect the strategy of your defense. Federal charges often carry harsher penalties and broader implications, necessitating a defense that is both meticulous and aggressive. However, State charged sex crimes must be taken very seriously as well, as certain charges carry a mandatory sentence of life in prison.

Protect Your Future With an Experienced and Trusted Criminal Defense Attorney

With so much at risk, the value of an experienced criminal defense attorney cannot be overstated. The right lawyer can mean the difference between a future burdened by a conviction, incarceration and other collateral consequences, and one where you have the chance to move forward without a life-changing outcome. Joshua uses his extensive knowledge to protect your rights and advocate for the most favorable outcome in your case.
