Aggravated Sexual Assault Charges Can Lead To A Harsher Sentence

Sex-related crimes carry a special stigma in our society, and they have the potential to lead to life-changing consequences such as years in prison and a lifelong placement on sex offender registries, which can in turn make it difficult to secure housing and employment. That's why it is absolutely crucial when facing charges of a sex crime to work with an experienced sexual assault defense attorney who can help you navigate the legal process and stand up for your actions and your reputation.

Aggravated sexual assault is a felony, and a more serious version of other sexual assault charges. A number of factors can lead prosecutors to file aggravated assault charges, such as the use of a deadly weapon, the aid of another person in carrying out the offense or certain serious injuries suffered by the alleged victim. Aggravated sexual assault comes with the potential for a more serious sentence of up to 99 years in prison, and/or a $10,000 fine.

I have provided legal services for countless clients charged with aggravated sexual assault and other sex offenses in my 25 years as a lawyer, and I know that these charges can be filed for a wide range of reasons. If you have been unfairly charged with aggravated sexual assault, I will help you defend your rights and your good name with detailed legal knowledge. And if an aggravated assault has indeed occurred, I will help you seek the appropriate charge and sentence.

A Sexual Assault Charge Doesn't Have To Derail Your Life

I provide my clients with experienced and confidential legal advice, to help them make informed decisions during this difficult time. The best defense strategies depend on the specific details of your case, so I will work with you to identify exculpatory evidence that will help us mount the best defense possible.
