Vigorous Sex Crime Defense Without Judgment
I understand that everyone makes mistakes. I also understand that charges of this type can be embarrassing for yourself and your family. In fact, it may be tempting to cooperate fully with investigators in the hope that this will all go away. However, it is important to not say a word to the police or prosecutors until you have secured criminal defense representation. You have a constitutional right to remain silent, and you should ALWAYS EXERCISE YOUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO REMAIN SILENT.

I will help you explore all of the available defense options, including entrapment or abandoning the thought of sexual conduct. I believe that everyone is entitled to a vigorous defense, free from judgment. I am here to help you, not criticize.
