One of the most difficult areas of concentration in criminal defense is the sex crimes charges. These are clearly some of the most highly emotional cases that are often fraught with irregularities and inconsistencies from the accusations to what actually happened. If you have been contacted by the police for any form of sex crime case, whether it is improper sexual contact or any form of unlawful type of pornography, you should contact our office to discuss these matters.
One of the most important ways that people wind up convicting themselves is when the police ask them to voluntarily come into the police station to discuss the allegations. The sheer fact of going in to meet the police voluntarily prevents a person from asserting that any confession was coerced. What I have told my clients in the past is even any admission that you were at the scene of the crime can be used against you in a court of law to support the alleged victim's statements. If you need help or have been contacted by the police for any investigation of a sex crime, you should contact an attorney experienced in sex crimes defense.
If you have already been charged with a sex crime, it is important to contact a lawyer who can subpoena records such as phone records or any other data that could help prove your innocence or that could help diminish the credibility of witnesses against you in court. We have represented clients on major felony sex offenses in almost every county surrounding Chicago, including Cook, Lake, McHenry, DuPage, Kane, and Will Counties.
