Sex Crimes

Los Angeles Attorney for Sex Crimes, Lewd Conduct and Molestation Charges

Sex crimes and child molestation are among the most strongly prosecuted crimes in California, and they carry lengthy sentences. Los Angeles County often uses specially trained prosecutors dedicated solely to the prosecution of persons charged with sex offenses and child molestation. Each alleged penetration or instance of touching may be filed as a separate count, and the sentences for each count are aggregated, sometimes resulting in sentences of more than 100 years in prison. Even minor sex crimes require lifetime registration as a sex offender and may seriously impair your job as well as your freedom. In addition, California's Megan's Law allows the names and addresses of sex offenders to appear on public web sites.

Lewd Conduct

Lewd Conduct in a public place is categorized as a sex crime.  Don’t be fooled into thinking that we are an enlightened society.  Lewd conduct charges are actively prosecuted.  Conviction for lewd conduct can not only result in stiff fines, but may result in jail time, even for the first offense.

A conviction for lewd conduct may impair your professional license and ruin your career.  Worse, in June 2004, the California Supreme Court reversed itself and determined that a simple misdemeanor lewd conduct conviction is subject to lifetime registration as a sex offender, the same as other sex crimes. 

Fight back!  There are defenses to lewd conduct about which you may be unaware.  Undercover officers routinely solicit sex and fabricate charges against you. 

You need an experienced attorney who can protect your rights and defend you against the power of the state, false witnesses, and self-righteous law enforcement.
