Call on an Experienced Fresno Criminal Defense Lawyer
It can be a very troubling and frightening experience to be arrested for a sex crime. Penalties for a conviction are serious and can include having to register as a sex offender for the rest of your life. You need to do all you can to avoid a conviction. Your first step should be to call a Fresno criminal defense attorney from my firm to contest your charges.
At the Law Office of Gerald Schwab, Jr. I have been achieving positive results for my clients for more than a decade. I have such an extensive understanding of California criminal law that I also work as an adjunct professor of criminal justice. As an Avvo-rated Superb lawyer, I consistently obtain favorable outcomes for my clients and can be relied upon to provide professional and knowledgeable representation.
What constitutes a sex crime?
Any accusation of a sex crime needs to be taken very seriously, as the ramifications could ruin your life. California harshly punishes those convicted of a sex crime, especially if the alleged victim is a minor. You need to call an attorney right away if you are even suspected of committing any kind of sex crime.
I can handle many types of sex crime charges including:
- Indecent exposure
- Sexual abuse
- Lewd conduct
- Failure to register as a sex offender
Exact punishments vary depending on the details of your charge. A sexual assault conviction, for instance, can bring up to 4 years in prison along with a fine of $10,000. Aggravating factors such as whether violence or the threat of violence was used, if a child was involved, and whether you have any prior convictions on your record can increase your penalties, however.
