Although facing a criminal charge of any type is of course a significant and, indeed, harrowing development in any individual’s life, it is certainly no overstatement to note that being arrested and charged with a sex crime-related offense can have especially dire repercussions.
For starters, and as we note on our website at the well-established criminal defense law firm of Rosenblum Fry P.C. in St. Louis, “The stigma and criminal penalties associated with a sex crime conviction are significant.”
Any individual in St. Louis or elsewhere in Missouri who has interacted with police and prosecutors pursuant to authorities’ allegations regarding the commission of a sexual offense knows that well. If you have been targeted in a criminal probe focused on illegal sexual activity (whether that is rape, an Internet sex crime, prostitution, child pornography or any other matter), you can reasonably expect to be treated in a harsh and uncompromising manner.
Given the potential outcome of a sex crime investigation in the event that the prosecution obtains a conviction, it is critically important for any defendant to secure timely, knowledgeable and aggressive assistance from seasoned legal counsel.
An experienced criminal defense attorney will begin working purposefully and methodically on behalf of a client from the very outset of representation, demanding that police and prosecutors prove every element of their case.
The attorneys at Rosenblum Fry do so backed by more than a century of collective on-point experience that is unstintingly geared in every client matter toward a best-case outcome and the mitigation of any downsides to the fullest degree possible.
We have advocated diligently on behalf of Missouri residents needing legal help to defend against state and federal allegations of charged sexual offenses in hundreds of cases.
And we are proud of the central role we play while doing that, knowing how vitally important it is for every person facing the considerable power and clout of criminal law authorities to be able to exercise his or her constitutional rights when accused of a crime.
We welcome readers’ questions and contacts to the firm, and stand ready always to provide diligent legal representation to individuals when they need it most.
