Child Sexual Abuse Charges

Get Virginia Beach Sex Crime Attorney in Your Corner!

Any crime that victimizes a child, whether it is neglect, abuse, or an act of violence, carries an undeniable stigma. For those convicted of committing a crime against a child, that person is branded and will certainly experience the consequences for the rest of their lives.

If you are currently facing charges of child sexual abuse or another sex crime, particularly against a minor, you must secure defense from an experienced Virginia Beach sex crime lawyer to protect your future. We can review the laws with you so that you know what to expect moving forward.

Penalties for Child Sexual Abuse

Investigators evaluate many different actions that may indicate child sexual abuse. Under the law, sexual abuse is defined as the individual intentionally touching another person in a provocative or suggestive manner without that person's consent.

An individual convicted of child sexual abuse could face the following:

  • Imprisonment or jail time
  • Substantial fines
  • Community services
  • Counseling or therapy
  • Mandatory registration as a sex offender

They will look for physical signs of abuse or sexual assault on the victim—fractures, bruises, cuts, and internal damage—as well as if the child shows signs of withdrawal, anxiety, or depression.

As the many variables can complicate these cases, outsiders may often form opinions before obtaining all of the details in the case. When you have a Virginia Beach sex crime attorney defending you, we can make sure to present only the facts and fight on your behalf.
