Sexual assault is any unwanted touching for a sexual purpose. Even an allegation of sexual assault can change your life forever. Where the accusation is made by a family member or person under your care, the effects of a criminal charge can be devastating. We understand what is at stake and will do everything to defend your good name and reputation.
If you have been charged with sexual assault, it is essential that you retain experienced counsel to address these serious charges. Aside from the reputational damage that can be wrought by a sexual assault conviction, the federal Sex Offender Information Registration Act (SOIRA) provides for continued monitoring and reporting conditions for convicted sex offenders. These restrictions and conditions can last for a lifetime. If you are convicted, you will likely be ordered to provide a DNA sample, which will be placed in the national DNA databank.
