Minneapolis Criminal Sexual Conduct Lawyers
Because of years of experience, the attorneys at Torres, Degree and Associates know that sex crime cases are often decided on the testimony of the individuals involved and the quality of their lawyers. The truth is that sexual assault and rape cases are often fraught with conflicting testimony, and they can be very difficult to defend. Innocent people may be falsely accused. Regardless of guilt or innocence, sexual assault cases also prove to be highly uncomfortable for the accused.
In Minnesota, sex crimes have been placed on the front burner politically. Individuals arrested for sexual assault – including rape, statutory rape, or sexual assault by a doctor – are considered guilty the moment they are charged. But Torres, Degree and Associates understands that being charged is different than being guilty.
Types Of Sexual Misconduct And Assault Crimes
There are different types of sexual misconduct and assault charges and allegations that include:
- Statutory rape
- Date rape
- Solicitation of a minor
- Child molestation
- Indecent exposure
- Production and/or possession of child pornography
- Internet sex crimes
If you have been accused of any of these, you need a Minnesota sexual misconduct/assault attorney to help you combat the charges. The consequences can yield lifelong damages. These damages include prison, probation, and/or registration on a sex offender registry for many years. This can make getting a job difficult, finding a place to rent difficult, the loss of professional licenses, and when on a registry the community must be alerted that you are moving in the area. No matter where a sex offender goes, the crime follows.
These are not crimes that are looked upon lightly by the courts or by people within the community, so it is very important to ensure that you have quality representation by a MN sexual misconduct/assault attorney to ensure the best quality life for you.
