Clearwater Sex Crimes Defense Attorney

Are You Facing Sex Crime Allegations in Pinellas County, FL?

If you or a loved one has been arrested on a sex crime charge in Clearwater or Pinellas County, it is very important that you hire an experienced criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. Fewer allegations can be more damaging to your personal and professional reputation. Conviction for a sex offense will typically score mandatory prison on Florida's criminal punishment code, and with certain point enhancements for sexual contact or penetration, the minimum sentence can often involve many years in state prison.

Most sex crimes will, as a collateral consequence of conviction, automatically designate the accused person a sexual offender or predator with lifetime registration requirements. These types of cases are vigorously prosecuted by the State of Florida; early intervention by Clearwater criminal defense lawyer can have a significant impact on whether formal charges are filed, what type of charge is filed, and the ultimate outcome.

Sex crimes in the state of Florida can include any one of the following:

  • Lewd and Lascivious Exhibition
  • Lewd and Lascivious Molestation
  • Unlawful sexual activity with a minor
  • Luring/enticing a child
  • Sexual battery
  • Posession of child pornography
  • computer related sex crimes
  • Lewd or lascivious activities in the presence of a child, elderly, or disabled person

We understand that when a sex crime allegation is made against a potential client, immediate intervention is absolutely critical. If the client has not yet been interviewed by the police, we will often decide whether the client should provide a statement. If a damaging statement was made, we look for potential violations of our client's constitutional rights that could result in the statement being suppressed.

If the case involves forensic evidence, we look for any defects or flaws in the procedures utilized or in the results themselves. Sometimes, the allegation is false and in these situations, we do all we can to discredit the accuser. Allegations of a sexual nature are extremely stressful for our clients. At The Law Office of Timothy Hessinger, we understand what is at stake and will vigorously defend our clients in bringing these matters to resolution.

If you or a loved one is accused of a sex crime, contact a Clearwater sex crimes attorney as soon as possible for aggressive legal counsel.
