Accused Of A Sex Crime Against A Child?

Sex crimes against children carry some of the most severe consequences of any criminal offense. It can affect your job, your reputation and your personal life before you get the chance to defend yourself. And, pleading guilty to a lesser offense, just to quickly put the whole thing behind you, can result in a sex offender registration — limiting your rights for the rest of your life.

Understand Your Rights. Protect Your Future.

Many sex crimes accusations are based entirely on he-said-she-said testimony, with no physical evidence. People make up accusations of sex offenses for many reasons. Some children lie about sexual abuse to gain attention. Young adults lie out of jealously and resentment.

Whatever your circumstances, I am prepared to help. As your attorney, I will do everything within my power to get you the best possible results. I accept sex crimes cases involving:

  • Criminal sexual conduct (rape)
  • Consenting sexual activity with an underage partner, sometimes referred to as "statutory rape"
  • Sexual abuse or molestation
  • Solicitation
  • Internet sex crimes, including the possession, distribution or possession of illegal images of children
  • Lewd conduct, indecent exposure
  • Other sex offenses

Facing Statutory Rape Charges

In New Jersey, you can face rape charges for having consensual sex. If you are 18 or older, and your partner is 16 or younger, the state will call this a crime. The law assumes that someone who is 16 or younger is incapable of giving consent.

Prosecutors do not have to prove physical force to convict you of statutory rape.

If the minor was 13, 14 or 15, and you are at least four years older, you could face 18 years in prison. If the minor was younger than 13, you face 10 to 20 years.

There are defenses to statutory rape charges, including a "Romeo and Juliet" exception, which may apply to teenagers who engage in consensual sex. The state does not accept mistakes about age —if, for example, your partner lied about age — as a defense.
