An Experienced Philadelphia Lawyer Defends Those Charged with Sex Crimes
A dedicated defense against sexual assault and child pornography charges
If you have been charged with a sex crime, you are most likely aware that there are seldom witnesses to the alleged crime. That is why the perceived credibility of the accuser in such cases counts a great deal. Any type of sexual offense charge carries a huge social stigma, and in some cases completely innocent people have found their lives destroyed by a person seeking revenge through a false accusation. For all of these reasons, it is imperative that you have experienced criminal lawyers in Philadelphia in your corner from the very beginning. David Jay Glassman has more than 40 years of experience working as a Philadelphia criminal defense attorney, including defending those charged with sex crimes.
Conviction for a sex offense carries lifelong negative consequences
There are more wrongful convictions stemming from sex crime charges than any other crimes. Because the laws for sexual offenses such as rape and child pornography have grown increasingly more stringent, a conviction for a sexual offense could require you to register as a sex offender, possibly for the remainder of your life. Some of the types of sex crimes you could be charged with include:
The penalties for sex crimes vary depending on several factors including:
- The nature of the offense
- Whether or not the defendant has a criminal record
- The jurisdiction where the alleged crime took place
A sex crime can be a misdemeanor carrying penalties such as jail time, fees and fines, and probation. A felony sex crime can carry prison time, fines and the possibility of lifetime registration as a sex offender. A felony conviction will make it difficult for you to gain employment, may limit where you can live and completely shatter your reputation and your privacy.
