CHICAGO SEX CRIME LAWYERS
Building a Strong Defense in State and Federal Sex Crime Cases
In terms of sex cases once we move beyond the misdemeanor offense of prostitution, most sex cases are cases that people – even other lawyers often shy away from. When we are talking about criminal sexual assault, aggravated sexual abuse or child pornography due to the nature of these allegations it is not uncommon for detectives, prosecutors and witnesses to unfairly judge a suspect before he or she is proven guilty in a court of law. Sex cases are cases in which it is often easier to condemn the suspect than to question the accuser in the reliability of his or her story. When it comes to sex crimes at the Law Offices of Robert Kerr we vigorously defend the accused, and we treat our clients like human beings that well deserve the presumption of innocence. The scariest thing about a sex case is that many cases without any physical evidence hinge solely on the word of the accuser. The consequences after conviction are among the harshest penalties available under the law. Whether it’s a “he said she said” case or a case involving DNA, social media or computer forensics we strongly believe in fighting these allegations head on. Consecutive prison sentences and lifetime registration as a sex offender are penalties that deserve your best defense. If you or your loved one is facing a criminal indictment or a DCFS investigation – please contact our offices immediately for help.
Sex crime allegations not only expose the defendant to what could be a long prison sentence, but also sex offender registration obligations and a long-term stigma that can hurt you and your family for years to come. At the Law Office of Robert Kerr, LLC, in Chicago, we know how serious sex crime charges can be, and we subject each allegation to careful scrutiny. Our experience with the defense of cases ranging from child molestation to sexual assault can make a significant difference to the outcome of your case.
If you are being investigated for a sex crime, or if you have already been arrested for one, it is important to talk with an experienced Chicago sex crime defense lawyer as soon as possible. Before your arrest, you are able to assert your right to an attorney, limit your exposure to certain criminal charges, or even prevent charges from being brought against you. Following your arrest, we can try to discuss your case with the prosecutor with the aim of persuading him or her to drop the charge or reduce it to a lesser one. In this manner, we have obtained dismissals and reduced charges for clients charged with serious sex crimes.
