Defending Georgians Against Sex Offense Charges
At Crosby Law, we have more than 20 years of experience dealing with sex offense charges. Our founding attorney, Matt Crosby, served as an assistant district attorney before starting his law practice defending those accused with sex offenses. We understand the devastating effects that even an accusation of a sex offense can have. Because the court of public opinion is against you from the outset, it’s important to hire an attorney as soon as possible.
Sex offenses in Georgia carry some of the toughest penalties in the country. Sentences include large fines and time behind bars often measured out in decades with the possibility of life in prison. Most sentences also include placement on Georgia’s sex offender registry, which affects your ability to work, travel and qualify for housing. With stakes this high, you don’t want to waste any time getting started on your defense.
A Calm, Focused Approach To Defending The Accused
Charges of sex offenses are both legally and emotionally complicated. We bring a steady hand and a sharp focus on the facts of the case. By approaching the situation with an unbiased eye, we cut through the raw emotions and identify facts to build a solid defense strategy. Our goal is twofold: to eliminate or reduce the charges against you and to minimize the impact on your life and the lives of those around you.
Sex offense charges we regularly defend include:
- Statutory rape
- Child molestation
- Aggravated sodomy
- Sexual battery
- Solicitation of prostitution
Georgia’s Sex Offender Registration
If you are found guilty of a sex offense in Georgia, your name will likely be added to the state’s sex offender registry. Once you are added to the registry, you may carry the label of “sex offender” for the rest of your life and will be required to keep the state informed about where you are living and working. This label puts restrictions on where you can live, where you can work and where you can travel. It also prohibits you from taking part in activities involving children, including your own kid’s school functions.
We understand the devastating impact being labeled as a sex offender can have on your life and the lives of your family members. That is why it is so critical to contact us as soon as possible so we can do everything possible to keep this from happening to you.
