Sex Crime Defense in South Bay, CA & Beyond
Sex crimes are among the most serious and sensitive criminal charges that a person can face, and the consequences can be life-altering—more so than other crimes. The loss of reputation and social isolation that follow sex crime convictions are no less harsh than a prison sentence. As a sex crime defense firm in Redondo Beach, our defense takes into account your trials in criminal court and in the court of public opinion.
In California, sex crimes are felony offenses, but the sentence varies according to the specific charge. The law claims that once a person has served their sentence, they’ve repaid their debt to society. This does not ring true for people convicted of sex-related offenses. Even after someone has served their time, they’ll be required to register as a sex offender and barred from certain housing or jobs.
The only way to avoid this fate is to fight your charges. For that, you’ll need a defense attorney who has experience with sex crimes.
Defending the Accused Since 1978
As an experienced sex crime lawyer, Michael Norris, Inc. understands the complexities of the state’s investigation and the defenses that can be used to clear your name, lower your charges, or reduce your punishment. Our firm does everything possible to weaken the prosecutor’s case against you, challenging everything from alleged victim statements to DNA and digital evidence.
Our team will also examine the circumstances of your arrest to determine if the police violated your rights. If your civil rights were overstepped, we’ll make sure any evidence gathered unlawfully is thrown out. This could strengthen the odds of a positive outcome.
Our aggressive approach has defended clients accused of sex crimes including:
- Sexual assault
- Sexual battery
- Child molestation
- Possession of child pornography
Your defense strategy will depend on the case the state brings against you, but in general, strong defenses challenge unlawful evidence or the credibility of testimony. If any evidence brought against you was gathered unlawfully, we can ensure that the prosecutor is unable to use it. This could weaken the prosecution’s case enough to reduce charges or get the case dismissed. If the case against you hinges on unreliable testimony, we’ll counter it.
Our firm has helped countless clients obtain favorable outcomes when they thought there was no hope. If you have been charged with a sex crime, speak with us as soon as possible. Our aggressive and results-oriented approach means we’re your best chance at fighting the prosecution’s charges. From our office on the Redondo Beach Pier, we offer free and confidential consultations to anyone facing sex crime charges.
