Both state and federal authorities have begun to crack down hard on sex related crimes in recent years, especially in regard to online sex crimes like solicitation to prostitution or attempts at sex trafficking of minors. The seizure of by the US DOJ in 2018 is only one among many examples of this trend.

Classes of Sex Crimes

The way particular criminal sexual acts are categorized by federal versus the various state level criminal codes is quite various. But nonetheless, there are a number of basic sex crimes practice areas that emerge, and we at Sex Crimes Attorney have many years of experience in handling cases in all of these particular areas. Lower level sex crimes are usually things like "indecent exposure" or "lewd and lascivious acts" (in public), but even these can create a permanent criminal record and result in mandatory sex offender registration.

But offenses like rape, statutory rape, spousal rape, sexual assault and/or battery, sexual molestation of a minor, continuous sexual abuse of a minor, prostitution or solicitation of a prostitute, sex trafficking, failure to register as a sex offender, and many more are very serious felonies that can result in years in state or federal prison.

Sex crimes vary widely in severity and in nature, and all they really have in common is that all of them have "something to do with sex." But the complexities of how sex crimes are defined and the sometimes unexpected ways in which certain sex crimes are punished, makes it imperative that you have the benefit of a top-tier sex crimes defense lawyer no matter which specific sex crime charge you may be facing.

Federal VS State Sex Crimes

Almost all sex crimes are covered by a state level statute, but many of them are also federal offenses. For example, child pornography crimes, Internet sex crimes, and sex crimes where state or international boundaries are crossed are likely to be prosecuted on the federal level.

Child sex trafficking, prostitution, use of the mail or "interstate facilities" to commit a sex crime, and attempts to entice children into situations where they will be victimized by sex offenders, be kidnapped, or commit sex crimes themselves are all penalized under federal law.

And realize that you can simultaneously be prosecuted and sentenced for both state and federal violations for the very same incident(s). That means the potential full punishment could be extremely long-lasting and severe.

Federal prison terms for many felony and aggravated sex crimes can be a minimum of 10 years and easily be 15, 20, 30 years or life. And that's not counting any state prison term, remember. When facing these types of charges, your whole future life is at stake, and you can't afford to entrust your case to anyone but the very best.

Defending Against Sex Crimes

There are many available defenses we at Sex Crimes Attorney use against sex crime allegations. While the exact defense strategy must fit the specific charge and the details of your case, there are also many basic defenses that come up in numerous types of sex crime cases.

Police entrapment or other violations of the defendant's rights like illegal search and seizure, planting of evidence, falsification of police reports, or arrest without reading you your Miranda Rights or without probable cause can all help get many sex crimes cases dismissed.

In many other cases, you may have been falsely charged by someone holding a grudge against you or by an ex spouse hoping to win a child custody or visitation rights battle by slandering you with a sex crime charge. Or, it could a case of mistaken identity or of purely circumstantial and inconclusive evidence being exaggerated by the prosecution.

No matter which sex crime you are being charged with, be it on the state or federal level or both, Sex Crimes Attorney will know how to build you a solid defense and win your case.
