Child Molest Sex Offense Facts
Child molest sex offenses include acts performed for the sexual gratification of the adult or child; the exact charge depends in part on the age of the child. Related offenses include possession of child pornography, attempting to meet a child for sex, and statutory rape. Penalties can include jail or prison time, fines, being required to register as a sex offender and the loss of the right to see your children or be in the presence of children. Penalties for even a first offense can be severe.
These are serious crimes with complicated defenses. It is important to obtain a skilled criminal defense attorney experienced in defending sex crimes as soon as possible to obtain the best results under the particular facts and law of your case.
Attorney Peter M. Liss can help you by:
- 1Advising you and keeping you updated at all times on your case status
- 2Arranging for you to avoid the embarrassment of arrest at home or work, or arguing for lower bail or no bail if you have already been arrested
- 3Interviewing witnesses and police
- 4Gathering evidence supporting your defenses. Supporting evidence can include: 1- a psychological evaluation showing that you do not fit the sexual profile of an offender 2- evidence showing the victim has a motive not to tell the truth or a history of not telling the truth 3- evidence of the victim's mental instability, disability, or tendency to fantasize or to form false memories that may cause the victim to give false or inaccurate testimony; 4- medical evidence and opinions contradicting the prosecution's medical evidence and opinions; 5- other evidence showing that you are innocent of the offense charged, or committed only a lesser included offense
- 5Making court motions
- 6Evaluating all legal defenses available in your case. These can include insufficient evidence, innocence, and other defenses
- 8Seeking reduction of charges (when available). If an investigation is underway but you have not yet been charged, depending on the facts I may seek to convince the prosecutor that you should not be charged or should be charged with a lesser offense than recommended by an agency or by police
- 9Representing you at trial or in a plea bargain
- 10Presenting the best legal defenses for your case
- 11Seeking alternative sentencing, or the lowest sentence available. Alternative sentences (available in some cases) can include fines, electronic monitoring / house arrest, residential treatment, counseling, and hormone therapy that suppresses sex drive. Depending on the facts and the type of offense, in some cases you may also be excused from annual registration as a sex offender
