Top rated criminal defense attorneys in Los Angeles | Former sex crime prosecutors
A sex crime conviction carries a permanent stigma, which can last a convicted person’s lifetime. The passage of Megan’s Law and the resulting California sex offender registry are examples of California’s increasingly punitive approach to punishing those convicted of sex offenses. If you have been accused of committing a sex offense in Los Angeles, you face the possibility of being punished with a permanent registered sex offender requirement. Due to the lifelong consequences of a sex crime conviction to you and your family, it critical to retain an experienced and qualified Los Angeles sex crime defense lawyer. Sex crime defense is a highly specialized, complex area of criminal defense practice. Your criminal defense attorney’s expertise and experience are essential elements in achieving a positive outcome. Therefore, it is critical that you seek legal counsel from a veteran defense expert with actual experience and success defending sex crime allegations in Los Angeles County. You must rely on your defense lawyer’s guidance and advocacy to either clear your name in trial or minimize the consequences if a plea agreement represents the best path to resolving your case.
