Sex crimes, such as rape, sexual assault, lewd and lascivious behavior, and computer child pornography can involve very long terms of imprisonment. Just being accused of a sex crime causes public humiliation. While sex crimes have always been a high priority for police, there has been a significant increase in prosecutions involving computer child pornography which can result in long prison sentences just for having child pornography on a computer without the defendant ever having molested a child.
Our criminal defense attorneys' at The Law Offices of Mark L. Horwitz, P.A. main goal is to protect our client's liberty. Our lawyers vigorously defend those accused of sex crimes by ensuring that all proper defense actions are taken. We have found that many times allegations of rape and other sex crimes are untrue and caused by motives such as jealousy or revenge. In the case of sex abuse of a minor we have seen that a child may lie and fabricate stories for many reasons. Through thorough investigation, preparation and trial work, we vigorously defend our clients against crime charges.
Sex crimes run the gamut from offenses involving children and computer child pornography to cyber crimes and indecent exposure to violent rapes and sexual assault.
When our firm is retained at an early stage, we strive to avoid the trauma and embarrassment of our client being arrested at home or at the workplace. We work to convince investigators to close investigations without charges and prosecutors to drop charges and if that is not possible to vigorously defend our client at trial or in plea negotiations.
If you believe you are under investigation for sex crimes, or if you have been arrested and need experienced vigorous representation from a sex crime defense lawyer, please contact The Law Offices of Mark L. Horwitz, P.A.
