At Roberts Law Group, PLLC, we believe there are two sides to every story, particularly when it comes to the emotionally charged accusations of sexual assault, inappropriate sexual contact or Internet sex crimes involving children. We want to hear your side. If you are facing charges, they won't go away on their own. You need aggressive, skilled legal defense. Contact our law office today to arrange a free consultation.
What do you do when the police come calling?
If the police start investigating you for a sex crime, your head may start spinning about what to do next. First, don't say a word. You are under no obligation to answer their questions. Before you talk to them, talk to us about how we can help. We will explain the court process and what your rights are. Then we go to work for you, aggressively protecting your future.
Whenever possible, we will focus on getting your charges dismissed for lack of evidence. If that strategy isn't available, we will work closely with the prosecutor to reduce felony charges to a misdemeanor. Our goal will always be to keep a conviction off your record and your name off the sex offender registry.
Our trial and prosecutorial experience includes sex crime cases such as:
- Aggravated sexual assault, rape
- Statutory rape
- Juvenile sex offenses
- Internet sex crimes, computer child pornography
- Solicitation of a minor
- Lewd behavior, indecent exposure
