Long Beach Sex Crimes Attorneys

At The Justice Firm, we know that innocent people are accused of sex crimes they did not commit every day. Whether you have been arrested for rape, sexual battery, child molestation, or even indecent exposure, it is undoubtedly the most frightening and uncertain time of your life. Whether innocent or guilty, it is imperative to have a criminal defense attorney on your side who will work vigorously to secure the best possible result in your case. Our team has the experience, skill, and committed approach essential to protecting your legal rights, freedom, and future.

Prosecutors will aggressively pursue allegations of a sex crime, regardless of the strength of the evidence. It is all too easy for someone to accuse another person of a serious offense out of anger, jealousy, or revenge. In many cases, one parent may accuse the other of child molestation or other serious crimes in order to gain custody of the children in divorce proceedings. Other alleged victims may make allegations they were sexually assaulted or raped while involved in a relationship, when in actuality the sex was consensual. Regardless of your situation, it is imperative to have a capable Long Beach sex crimes lawyer who will provide the exceptional legal support and guidance you need during this difficult and challenging time.

We are experienced in all areas of sex crimes including:

  • Date rape
  • Rape
  • Statutory rape
  • Sexual assault
  • Sexual harassment
  • Sexual battery
  • Pandering
  • Prostitution
  • Child molestation
  • Child pornography
  • Child prostitution
  • Indecent exposure
  • Lewd conduct
  • Sex offender registration

In California, misdemeanor violations such as indecent exposure to serious or violent felony offenses such as rape are all classified under the general term of "sex crimes." The only thing worse than being charged with a sex crime which in itself can make you feel ashamed, even when you are innocent, is being found guilty of a sex crime. If convicted, it is almost a guarantee that you will be ordered by the court to register as a sex offender, most likely for the remainder of your life. This will impact where you live, where you may work, even your standing in the community as most people shun those who are labeled sex offenders.

Criminal Penalties for Sex Crimes in Long Beach

The penalties you may face if convicted of a sex crime depend on a number of factors including your criminal history, whether threats, force, or violence was used, the severity of the charges, whether a child was involved, and more. The consequences of a conviction may include:

  • Jail/prison time (up to life in some cases)
  • Fines/court fees
  • Probation
  • Court-ordered registration as a sex offender
  • Community service
  • Sex offender counseling or treatment
  • A potential "strike" on your criminal record under the state's Three Strikes Law

Even in the event you do not receive substantial jail/prison time, every aspect of your life will be affected if convicted of a sex crime including your reputation, career, and relationships.
