Clearwater Child Molestation Defense Attorneys
In the world of public opinion, child sex abuse charges are generally thought to be among some of the most despicable crimes one can be associated with. Even people in prison populations generally distance themselves with people convicted of child sex abuse or who have been labeled pedophiles.
The stigma attached to these kinds of charges is pervasive and can affect every aspect of your life, even if the allegations never lead to an actual arrest. At Bauer Crider & Parry our Tampa child sex abuse defense lawyers understand the gravity of the situation and can help you when it comes to how these charges will affect every aspect of your life. Contact us today to schedule a free consultation to learn more about your rights and options if you are facing this kind of situation.
Our Tampa child sex abuse defense lawyers understand that there are enhanced penalties now for child abuse convictions that include mandatory minimum sentences to even a life sentence if the sex crime involves a child who is under the age of 12. It is also important to note that if the incident involves any child under 16, there is no ability to consent to any sexual contact with anyone on the part of the child.
On top of constructing a comprehensive defense for trial and negotiation purposes, we are here to protect your reputation and avoid you having to register as a sex offender, a title that will follow you for the rest of your life no matter where you move.
In fact, if you fail to register if you move, this can carry severe punishment as well. Part of our job is to try and negotiate with the prosecution so that the charges are reduced or you are charged with a different crime that will not require you to register on any sex offender registry.
