Sex Crimes Defense

Sex Crimes Defense Attorney

Jacksonville criminal defense lawyers provide defense against rape, sexual assault, prostitution, and child sex abuse

Being accused of a sex crime carries a stigma that can damage your reputation and affect your job and family. Although everyone has the right to competent legal representation and a fair trial, those falsely accused or have made mistakes, may face social disgrace based on mere allegations — before the issue even comes to trial.

The importance of representation by an experienced legal advocate

Unfortunately, people sometimes make false accusations of severe sexual assault to gain an advantage — or even out of spite. However innocence alone cannot necessarily protect you in a complex legal situation. Florida statutes specify that conviction as an adult sexual felony offender results in a mandatory minimum term of 25 years in prison that can extend to imprisonment for life.

Anyone arrested on these charges should seek representation by an experienced sex crime attorney in Jacksonville before answering any questions. At Fallgatter & Catlin, P.A., our criminal defense lawyers intervene immediately on behalf of our clients, dealing with prosecutors and other authorities. Sometimes we can get investigations dropped before the prosecution files charges or have charges dismissed before the grand jury convenes to render an indictment.

Our dedicated Jacksonville criminal law attorneys recognize the devastating effects even false allegations can have on your future due to societal judgment and doubt. We do our best to keep your matters private and away from the media. When a case does move forward to trial, as the defendant, you have our decades of experience at your side to protect your rights.
