Being accused of a sex crime in South Florida is extremely serious.
The ramifications of a conviction can endure for a lifetime. Many convictions result in jail time – some even in life imprisonment. Then there is the public humiliation, the risk of media interest, being labeled a “pervert” and having to register as a sex offender for life.
The umbrella term of “sex crimes” covers a wide range of offenses including solicitation for prostitution (the most common type of sex crime), child pornography, sexual battery and rape, lewd and lascivious behavior, unlawful sex with minors, incest and more.
When it comes to a sex crime, anyone can make an accusation. Adding insult to injury is that the police frequently tend to believe the accuser, ignore the evidence and twist anything you tell them in a way that makes you look guilty.
If you think you might be accused of a sex crime or if you have been arrested for a sex crime, it is vital not to speak to the police. Use your constitutional right to request legal counsel. Call The Law Office of Joshua W. Deckard immediately.
We will non-judgmentally listen to your side of the story, keep everything confidential and treat you with respect.
Successfully defending a person in South Florida accused of a sex crime requires an extraordinary level of legal knowledge, understanding of police interrogation techniques, courtroom experience, contacts within the judicial system and tenacity.
Our goal is to keep your case out of court, but if it does go to court, you need a South Florida attorney who knows how to best litigate a sex crime case and can disarm jurors, who very well may stigmatize you because of the type of crime you have been accused of.
We know the stakes are high. At The Law Office of Joshua W. Deckard, we will do whatever we can to defend you. We do not want to see you go to prison for something you did not do.
