Sex Crime Charges Can Be Beaten. Our Lawyers Have Done It.
At Roberts Law Group, PLLC, we have successfully argued for dismissals of sex crime charges and won acquittals of sex offenses at trial. Our sex crimes defense lawyers have earned:
- Dismissal of a first-degree statutory sex offense charge. Our client was accused of forcing his daughter to perform oral sex on him. We aggressively challenged every aspect of the state's case through the use of experts and won dismissal of the statutory rape charge.
- Dismissal of a statutory rape charge. Our client was accused of having sex with a female minor. Despite a positive identification of our client by the underage female as the man with whom she'd had sex, we were able to secure dismissal of the statutory rape charge. Our client faced only probation for a misdemeanor offense and avoided the sex offender registry.
- Dismissal of sex offender restriction violations. Our client was accused of using social media despite a North Carolina law prohibiting registered sex offenders from using Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc. The social media violation was dismissed and our client avoided a six- to eight-month prison sentence.
In addition to getting sex crimes charges dropped, our firm has been able to help clients completely avoid sex crimes charges when our legal representation was secured early on in the investigation. Our Charlotte sex crimes defense lawyers have kept charges from being filed in cases involving:
- Indecent liberties with a child
- Distribution of child pornography via a P2P network
- A second-degree forcible sex offense
- Possession of child pornography
These are just a few examples of the successes we have had fighting sex crimes allegations on behalf of individuals facing serious prison time and being forced to register for up to life as a sex offender based on charges of a state or federal sex crime in North Carolina.
Can A Sex Offense Charge Be Removed From Your Record?
If you were accused of a sex crime and found not guilty or the charges were dismissed, you may be eligible to have the alleged sex offense removed from your criminal record. This removal process is called expungment and, if granted, means that all records of the criminal charges will be destroyed. If DNA evidence was collected during the investigation for a sex offense that was later dismissed or of which you were acquitted, you can request that the DNA records be destroyed as well.
If you have been convicted of a sex crime and completed your sentence, including any prison time and term of years as a registered sex offender, you may be able to have your name removed from the sex offender registry.
