Fighting Sex Crimes Convictions In Maryland & Washington, D.C.

As if the collateral damage from being accused of sexual assault or molestation is not bad enough, the criminal consequences of a sex crime conviction are extremely harsh. The prison sentences associated with sex crimes are often 20 years or more, and the convicted are required to register as a sex offender for life. It is perfectly understandable if being convicted of a sexually-based offense feels like the end for you. How can you recover from this and regain the life you knew before? It will not be easy but, with the help of a proven criminal defense attorney, you can remedy this miscarriage of justice.
