Criminal Defense Against Serious Charges
Sex crimes are complicated and very unique. Properly defending yourself against an accusation requires the services of a competent and experienced Cleveland criminal defense attorney who has an in-depth knowledge of this legal area.
As with other types of criminal accusations, sex crime charges can carry the possible penalties including fines, jail or prison time, and a permanent criminal record. However, due to the nature of the crimes, they may also bring about some unique consequences.
If you are convicted, you may have to register as a sex offender for the rest of your life, which can be devastating to your personal and professional ambitions. In addition to this, whether you are guilty or not, the social stigma of these allegations alone can be devastating to you and your family.

Contact Us Before Speaking with Law Enforcement Officials
If you have been arrested and charged with a sex crime, or have reason to believe that you are under investigation, it is extremely important to not speak with law enforcement until you have consulted with a Cleveland criminal defense lawyer who is on your side. By refraining from doing this, as well as refraining from accepting any plea bargains that have been offered, you may be able to avoid self-incrimination, conviction, harsher sentences, and even the requirement of registering as a sex offender.
