Sex charges can ruin lives. True or false, the damage is done when the finger is pointed. Conviction for a sex crime can often never be expunged. Conviction for a sex crime can require registration.
We don’t represent rapists. We represent regular people charged with sex crimes. We represent young men charged with statutory sex crimes — things that were completely consensual between young people. The problem today is that when the couple is more than three years apart in age, the law treats that as a felony and seeks to brand a young man with life-altering consequences. These are consequences the couple never intended.
Date rape is the current term for age-old sexual interaction between young men and young women. These often take place on college campuses and involve alcohol, misunderstandings, and conflicting reports about what happened in a bedroom.
Defense of sex charges require immediate investigation and advice to contain the situation. It requires upfront action to understand motives.
Here’s an example of a case we successfully defended. Our client was arrested and jailed on multiple Measure 11 sex charges that could have sent him to prison for life. All charges were dismissed at grand jury. Our client’s arrest record was expunged immediately. We beat the Oregon Department of Human Services in a two-day trial against four government lawyers. We then turned the table and civilly sued the false accusers. We recovered a substantial, confidential sum of money. Our client wrote a book about his experience.
