San Diego Sex Crime Defense Lawyer

Serious Charges Require Serious Defense

Sex crimes have been made into modern day witch trials. Centuries ago it took only one person to allege that someone was a witch. Without any additional evidence, the accused was then found guilty and punished with death.

Today, it takes only one person to make an allegation of rape or molestation and the public erupts into frenzy. The prosecution often believes the person who is making the accusation, even where there is little or no corroborating evidence. Tragically, the penalties can be as severe as life in prison, depending on the charge and the particular case.

At The Law Offices of Timothy J. Richardson, our San Diego criminal defense attorney takes sex crime defense very seriously. We fight hard to get our clients freed from unnecessary punishments by challenging the often shaky evidence that prosecutors have compiled.

Types of Sex Crimes

Sex crime defense is a large category of law, encompassing:

  • Indecent Exposure
  • Lewd Conduct
  • Child Molestation
  • Pedophilia
  • Child Pornography
  • Prostitution
  • Rape, date rape and statutory rape
  • Sex offender status
  • Sexual abuse
  • Sexual assault
  • Sexual harassment
  • Sodomy

For all major sex crime cases, our criminal defense attorneys in San Diego commission a substantial investigation conducted by a private investigation team. The investigation is very important because it can reveal evidence of bias, a history of fabrication and dishonesty, or a motive to lie.

In addition to hiring a private investigator, it may be necessary to retain an expert in other disciplines. Many psychologists, for example have studied why children make false accusations as well as a phenomenon known as “repressed memory syndrome.” These experts can testify and explain why someone, either an adult or child, would fabricate such a story.

Your Wishes Come First

In all cases handled by The Law Offices of Timothy J. Richardson, our San Diego criminal defense lawyer makes sure we are proceeding according to the clients’ wishes. If you do not want to undergo a trial, for example, we will not force you to do so. And of course, everything you tell our lawyers will be kept strictly confidential under the attorney-client privilege.
