Champaign Criminal Defense Attorney
If you have been accused of a sex crime, it is critical that you retain an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. While charges may vary from case to case, all alleged sex crime offenders can expect hostile conditions during their legal proceedings. The American judicial system paves the road for a fair case and trial, but the fact remains that the distasteful public opinion surrounding sex crimes often seeps into cases and can impact eventual outcomes. As such, our legal team can not only fight to reduce or dismiss your charges, but also to ensure that your rights are fully protected throughout your legal journey.
At Patel Law, PC, we begin fighting for our clients from the moment we are hired. We work collectively and use years of experience, in-depth knowledge and extensive resources to help our clients achieve the best possible results. We know that clients facing allegations involving sex crimes need help immediately, and we do everything possible within the scope of the law to protect their rights and their freedom. We are prepared to assist and aggressively represent clients against a wide variety of sex crime allegations, including:
- Criminal sexual assault, involving force or violence against an adult victim
- Predatory criminal sexual assault of a child
- Child abuse and molestation
- Possession of child pornography
- Solicitation of a minor
- Internet sex crimes
Many people accused of sex crimes worry about the penalties they may face. Some sex offenses carry mandatory prison time if you are convicted. You may also face registration requirements as a sexual offender, even if the alleged crime is just a misdemeanor. You may be prohibited from going to parks or schools, and you may be prohibited from living or working where you would like.
As we understand the serious stakes at risk during sex crime cases, we work tirelessly on behalf of our clients. Our ultimate goal is to obtain an acquittal. To do this, we often rely on DNA analysis as well as elements of criminal procedure, criminal law and a thorough analysis of the facts. We will interview witnesses, analyze the evidence and fight at trial when necessary.
