Child Sexual Abuse

Crimes involving child sexual abuse are prosecuted vigorously in Virginia. If you are convicted of molestation, soliciting of a minor or another offense, you could face prison time and registration as a sex offender for the rest of your life. Even if you are not convicted, the accusation itself can be extremely damaging to your personal and professional life.

If you have been charged with child sexual abuse, sexual assault or other sex crime, it is important to have the assistance of an experienced criminal defense attorney who can aggressively and proactively defend you.

Understanding How To Defend You In Court

At the law firm of Mark B. Williams & Associates, PLC, in Warrenton, we offer an extraordinary depth and breadth of experience in matters involving children. In addition to having represented thousands of clients in a variety of criminal matters, attorney Mark B. Williams was a social work supervisor in charge of child protective services before he became a lawyer. He then worked as an attorney for the Department of Social Services for five years. This experience makes him an effective advocate for those charged with sex crimes in Virginia.

How we can help: In cases where child sexual abuse is alleged, the first thing we do is conduct a thorough investigation. Our attorneys talk to potential witnesses, review physical evidence and other forms of evidence, conduct research, work with private investigators and identify experts who can help us defend our clients.

When alleged abuse occurs within the context of a divorce or custody dispute or when there is concern that a child was prompted to report abuse that simply didn't happen, we can explore motives and challenge assumptions about the accusations. In every situation, our attorneys will gather as much information as possible in order to prepare your defense, which involves working aggressively to reduce the charges or have them dismissed.
