Standing By Your Side When You’re Facing Serious Allegations Of Sex Crimes
Sex crimes are prosecuted vigorously and punished severely, in part because of the heinous nature and in part because sexual offenders are believed to be incurable. After a lengthy prison term, those who have been convicted are saddled with the heavy burden of sex offender registration.
Perhaps more than any type of crime, those accused of sexual offenses need to be afforded the foundation of our criminal justice system — presumed innocent until proven otherwise. At Flesch & Beck Law, we are unflinching advocates for our clients. The more serious the allegations, the more important it is to work with a firm that will fight for you.
Experienced Criminal Defense For Sexual Offenses
Simply being accused of a sex crime can destroy a person’s reputation, career and family. In the event of a conviction, the drastic penalties will consume your freedom and your future. We provide a true defense for sex crime allegations, including:
- Rape or criminal sexual abuse
- Statutory rape (sex with a minor)
- Child molestation or sexual assault on a child
- Internet sex crimes (child pornography or soliciting a minor)
- Prostitution crimes
- Indecent exposure
The actual charges and potential penalties depend on the circumstances and aggravating factors, including age of the victim, the nature of the offense, use of force or offenses committed by a person in a position of trust. Most sex crimes are felonies, punishable by prison terms and long-term or lifetime registration as a sex offender.
You Are Entitled To Your Day In Court
We understand that sex crimes must be aggressively defended yet handled with sensitivity. You don’t want to be viewed as blaming the victim or re-victimizing a child. You certainly don’t want to be in the news. Yet you are on trial for your life, and the only way to protect yourself is to forcefully challenge the allegations.
We work to get evidence thrown out, such as unlawful searches or coerced statements. We question the investigators’ methods such as suggestive questions in interviews of children. We challenge the physical evidence and chain of custody. We challenge witness accounts and contradictions in the accuser’s story.
We Can Make A Difference In The Outcome
Kevin Flesch regularly takes cases to trial. That alone sets him apart from many defense lawyers whose main strategy is a plea bargain. We are prepared to do what it takes to spare you from the ongoing nightmare of a sex crime conviction.
