Morristown Sex Crime Defense Attorneys
Sex crimes carry very serious penalties including a damaging criminal record, mandatory lifetime registry as a sex offender and even civil commitment. If you are under investigation or have been accused of a sex crime, it is critical that you retain the experienced criminal defense attorneys of The Darling Law Firm to fight the state’s charges.
Disappearing Evidence Problems In Sex Crime Cases
Because of these matters are sensitive and the fleeting nature of evidence, we act immediately and with discretion from the moment we agree to take your case. Sexual assault, rape, and endangering the welfare of a minor often involve personal relationships and complex fact scenarios and you need an advocate who will understand your side of the story. The seasoned defense attorneys of The Darling Law Firm will meet with you to obtain the facts of your case, we will speak with any witnesses, investigate potential alibis, seek evidence such as surveillance video, text messages, phone records, witness testimony establishing other circumstances and other evidence proving your innocence and follow up on all possible leads. Unfortunately, allegations of sex crimes often occur when the alleged victim is trying to protect themselves from the anger of a parent or spouse over actions they willingly participated in or even initiated. Another reason may be to get revenge on a married individual who rejected them or terminated a discreet relationship. We are aware that certain circumstances such as ingestion of drugs or alcohol may give rise to acts which neither party would otherwise have participated in and may also alter recollections of either party.
Aggressive Prosecution By The State
Due to the sensitive nature of sex crimes, New Jersey law enforcement takes an aggressive stance in its prosecution and will often employ additional resources in building a case against you. Your first step in a good defense is having the experienced attorneys of The Darling Law Firm on your side. We employ strategic, aggressive advocacy to protect our clients accused of sex crimes. Because we take the time to understand your side of the story and investigate all of the facts, we are able to present the evidence best suited to protect you and fight against the use of other evidence by the prosecution.
The Harsh Consequences Of Conviction For Sex Crimes
New Jersey has enacted Megan’s Law and inclusion on the sex offender registry is required upon conviction. If you are convicted of a sex crime it will impact your ability to obtain employment, reside in certain neighborhoods and can even restrict your ability to spend time with your own children. Conviction of a sex crime can alter your life, take away certain rights and make you a constant target of societal scorn. We obtain all police reports, the names of any witnesses the prosecution has and all evidence they intend to use against you. Because of the life-altering consequences of a conviction or plea to sex crime charges, we always seek to have the case against you dismissed. If it is not possible to have the charges against you dismissed, we make every effort to resolve your issue with a plea that does not expose you to the more severe aspects of punishment under the sex crime statutes. If we determine a trial is needed to protect you from the allegations threatening your future, we are fully prepared to zealously present the evidence needed to prove your side while breaking down the prosecution’s case in order to protect you from the devastating accusations against you.
