Being convicted of a sex crime carries two kinds of serious penalties:


  • Criminal penalties include jail time or prison and a lifetime of sex offender registration
  • The social stigma associated with sex crimes may lead to loss of a job, estrangement from family, and divorce

Sex crimes often carry long jail sentences and required registration as a sex offender for life. The stakes are enormous. Call me today at (757) 785-0201 to arrange for a free case overview and learn your options. In sex crimes cases, early intervention by an experienced criminal defense attorney can make a tremendous difference in a case, especially when accusations of child sex abuse are involved. If you have been contacted by Child Protective Services, Department of Social Services, or by the police, or you believe that you may be under investigation by the police, get immediate legal help and advice.

Defense Strategies in Sex Crimes Cases


As a former Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney, City of Virginia Beach, I am well-versed on how prosecutors prepare sex crimes cases, and on the challenges and problems that a case might involve. For example, some people bring false charges of sexual assault to cover up consensual sex if it would be damaging to the person’s family. False charges can also be brought to seek revenge or to punish someone for a perceived wrong.
