Savannah Sex Crime Attorneys

Representation You Can Trust

Being accused of any crime in the state of Georgia is a burdensome and frightening thing. However, when it comes to being accused of a sex crime, you are in for a much tougher time. This is because out of the entire country, the state of Georgia is known for having some of the most stringent sex offender standards, along with some of the most severe penalties.

Before you get to court, law enforcement officials will attempt to persuade you into saying or doing something that would destroy your testimony or make you look guilty. The prosecutors will also do their best to malign you so the jury, which is already biased against reported sex crimes, will automatically shut you out. Fortunately, our Savannah sex crime lawyers at The Lerch Law Firm can give you new hope.

Sex Crimes Cases We Handle

In the state of Georgia, there is actually a wide range of sex crimes, with different penalties for distinct crimes. What makes the laws so complex, however, is that the penalties can also change depending on whether the crime is designated as a misdemeanor or as a felony.

Fortunately, at The Lerch Law Firm, we are highly experienced at safeguarding clients from both misdemeanor and felony charges.

Some of the examples of sex crimes include:

  • Rape and statutory rape

  • Sexual assault and sexual battery

  • Soliciting minors by use of the Internet

  • Child pornography

  • Sodomy and aggravated sodomy

  • Sex crimes occurring on the Internet

  • Indecent exposure

Consequences for Sex Crimes in Georgia

Understandably, committing a sexual crime upon another person can cause terrible trauma to those victims. However, for those unfairly accused of committing a sexual crime, the charge spells out the virtual ending of one’s life. Even if you manage to survive the extremely harsh environment and bias that occurs against supposed sex crime offenders, there are life-long consequences as well.

In addition to long terms of parole, as well as paying massive fines, you will be forced to register as a sexual offender, if your offense was counted as a felony. Once you are on this registry, it becomes extremely difficult to get employment, housing, loans, or even insurance because everyone looks down on those upon this registry.
