Wilmington Sex Crime Defense Attorneys

Sex charges, in addition to their statutory penalties, carry a heavy burden of shame. Clients often come to us in a state of great discouragement. Our first task is to turn away that sense of hopelessness.

We remind clients that these charges are often half-baked: in computer pornography cases evidence that you are the individual who did these deeds is lacking, or evidence of intent, or evidence that you had sole control over the materials in question. Many charges arise from misunderstandings.

The case against you is only as strong as your defense allows it to be. We work hard to show the inadequacy of the prosecution's case, or to cast doubt in jury members' minds. At the same time we treat clients with the respect they deserve. In the event of conviction, we work to avoid prison time. The overall message our attorneys seek to convey is: All is not lost.

Our lawyers successfully defend individuals charged with the full range of sex crimes:

  • Rape and statutory rape
  • Sexual abuse and aggravated sexual abuse
  • Indecent liberties
  • Online enticement
  • Possession or distribution of illegal pornography
  • Prostitution and solicitation
  • Sexual assault and battery
  • Indecent exposure
  • Failure to register as a sex offender
