Windham County Sex Crime Attorney

Trusted Legal Representation for Sex Crime Cases in Connecticut 

Conviction on a sex crime charge can carry very severe penalties. In addition to a possibly lengthy jail sentence, after you are released from jail and on parole or special parole, your name may be added to the sex offender registry for the rest of your life! More than any other type of criminal conviction, a sex crime conviction affects all aspects of your life, limiting the work you can do and the jobs you can get, restricting where you can live and who you can live with, in some cases even prohibiting you from living with your own minor children.

If you face a sex crime charge, you should not passively accept your fate. You certainly should not speak to the police or agents of the Department of Children and Families (DCF), or even your own therapist or psychologist without first talking with an experienced criminal defense attorney. You have the right to remain silent and to be represented by a lawyer. Don't talk to anyone about your situation except your Windham County sex crimes defense attorney!

Understanding Sex Offender Registration Implications

Under Megan's Law, a conviction for a sex offense may lead to mandatory registration as a sex offender for at least 10 years, if not the rest of your life.

While registered as a sex offender, you will be:

  • Required to register where you live and work with state and local officials
  • Prohibited from engaging in certain kinds of work and/or other activities that might bring you into contact with children
  • Restricted in where you can reside

You may even be restricted from living with your own minor children.

These are very serious and potentially lifelong consequences. We will vigorously defend you against sex crime charges. We will do our best to get the charges against you dismissed or reduced to minimize the consequences you may face. If your case goes to trial, we will work hard to achieve a not-guilty verdict.

Can A Sex Offender Charge Be Dropped?

Your attorney can investigate the charge and determine where it is vulnerable to scrutiny. Perhaps the story of the accuser has inconsistencies. Or it is possible that the evidence is minimal beyond a simple "he said, she said" claim. If the sex crime charge is based on a false accusation or incorrect information, your attorney can find compelling ways to challenge and refute that charge.
