Expert Resources, Professionals and Dedication to Your Rights
Because of the dramatic impact this kind of charge can have on the life of the accused, regardless of a guilty verdict, these are the kinds of charges to which we must devote tremendous amounts of energy to. Our work begins with a conference where we decide what resources to employ and how soon to begin them. Our firm uses experts from around the country, including medical professionals, psychologists, memory experts, private investigators and other DNA and forensic experts to evaluate cases and determine the best course of action in pursuing your defense.
Sexual Assault Penalties in Oregon
Oregon requires that a person convicted of a "sex crime" register as a sex offender. The person must register each year, or any time the person changes his or her residence. This burden is in addition to the significant penalties one faces if convicted of a sex offense which is a Measure 11 crime. If you are accused of a sex crime, it is critical to determine whether any immediate action should be taken to protect your rights. We will confer to decide whether immediate investigation and experts and/or witnesses should occur to prepare a defense on your behalf.
We are experienced in the defense of sex charges, including:
- Sexual abuse
- Child abuse
- Domestic abuse
- All degrees of sexual assault
- Date rape
- Sexual Penetration
- Contributing to the sexual delinquency of a minor
- Sexual misconduct
- Public or private indecency
Defending Against Sex Crimes Allegations
Sex crimes are some of the most challenging cases to defend against because they are highly fact specific and can turn on a "he said" "she said" scenario with varying interpretations of what actually happened. In addition to the difficulty in assessing the facts, stakes are without exception, very high for the accused. We are sympathetic to the difficult situations faced by our clients and will remain a steadfast, aggressive legal team working on your behalf to eliminate or minimize penalties and charges in your case.
