Sex Crimes

Sex crime charges are among the worst allegations to face due to the social stigma, long prison sentences that can apply, and especially because of the possible requirement (if convicted) of lifetime registration with the state of California as a sex offender affecting where you can live or what kind of work you do.

Often the juries are predisposed to believe the allegations due to their inherently horrendous nature. For example, child sexual abuse, rape and statutory rape, prostitution, oral copulation by force, indecent exposure, and lewd conduct are all sex crimes.

We at Severo Legal Associates know how frequently false sex crime accusations are made and how often charges are exaggerated by prosecutors. We know how difficult it can often be for prosecutors to reach the high bar of "proven beyond all reasonable doubt," and we have gotten many sex crime charges dismissed or acquitted based on weak evidence.
