Skilled Defense Services For Sex Crime Charges In Virginia
Communities throughout Virginia take sex offenses more seriously than nearly every crime except murder. Coming under investigation for a sexual offense means you are already being tried in the court of public opinion if news is leaked in your community. Formal charges can result in a life-long stain on your public record. A conviction, including agreeing to a plea arrangement, can mean you may be required to register as a sex offender for life.
Having a criminal defense attorney who understands how high the stakes are is critical to your future. At Mark B. Williams & Associates, PLC, in Warrenton, we have been aggressively protecting people’s rights in the Virginia criminal justice system since 1990.
We know how sensitive sexual charges are. You can count on us to represent you vigorously and without judgment, always maintaining the highest degree of confidentiality.
Call us immediately if you have been questioned by police or have been arrested and charged with any misdemeanor or felony sex offense, either in the state or federal court system. Our experience includes cases related to:
- Aggravated sexual assault, rape
- Child pornography, sexual abuse of a minor
- Statutory rape, “date rape,” sexual assault of an acquaintance
- Prostitution, solicitation of a prostitute
- Internet sex crimes, solicitation of a minor
We Fight Entrapment
State and federal authorities set up fake websites to catch offenders soliciting children for online sexual discussions, child pornography or to arrange a personal meeting. Because of the impersonal nature of the Internet, the actions taken in your own living room may not seem like a crime, but the consequences are very real. Our lawyers review the circumstances of your arrest and fight aggressively against entrapment by authorities.
Call Us Right Away
In many cases, authorities have been investigating your activities for many days, weeks or months before making an arrest. Don’t give the prosecutor more of a head start. Call our offices in Warrenton immediately at 540-254-0757 or contact us by email to discuss your case with one of our experienced sex crimes defense lawyers.
