Napa Sex Crime Attorney
Get Over 20 Years of Legal Experience on Your Side
In California and across the nation, there are certain criminal offenses that carry an added stigma with them. Sex crimes are an example of such offenses. Because of the nature of the offense, the public and even the criminal justice system is often biased against the individual charged with the offense.
When it comes to sexual offenses, even being accused of something sex-related can have a lasting impact on a person’s life, regardless of the outcome of the case. At the Law Office of Douglas Pharr, we believe that everyone deserves to be seen as “innocent until proven guilty beyond reasonable doubt”, no matter what the charge.
Types of Sex-related Crimes in California
The category of sex crimes covers a broad range of misconduct, from minor remarks to aggravated assault.
Sex-related crimes include:
- Indecent exposure
Lewd acts with a child
Possession of child pornography
Prostitution (solicitation and engagement)
Statutory rape (sex with a minor)
If you’ve been charged with one of the offenses listed above or another sex-related crime, early intervention with strong legal defense is key to your case. The prosecution confronts alleged sexual offenses with the full extent of the law and often, the judge and jury will be bent towards favoring the victim over the accused.
Penalties for someone convicted of a sexual offense in California include:
- Jail time
Mandatory registration as a sex offender
In addition to the legal ramifications of conviction, the defendant will also face living with the stigma of a sex offender, which can impact one’s pursuits for employment, education, and personal relationships.
