Being arrested for a sex offense can be embarrassing, devastating to both your personal and professional life, and can be a lifelong issue. There is no other area of law where you should hire experienced, educated, and qualified a criminal defense attorney than this ever changing area. Laws such as Jessica’s Law (also known as the Sexual Predator Punishment & Control Act or Proposition 83, effective in November 2006) and Megan’s Law (sexual registration requirements) make it imperative that you hire a criminal defense attorney that remains educated in this area of law.
It is very important to hire an attorney immediately if arrested or contacted for any type of sex offense, as time can be a valuable ally when preparing your defense.
Sex crimes or sex offenses include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Sexual Assault and Aggravated Sexual Assault
- Forcible Rape

Do not consent to a search of your person/residence/vehicle. Demand a search warrant.
