Sex Crimes

If you have been accused of or charged with a sex crime, you may be embarrassed or afraid of what may happen next. We understand. Knowing more about your options and the process will ease your mind. Chatham — Pittman, PLLC, can inform you and advocate for you. Contact us today.

The penalties you face may be severe: fines, imprisonment and lifetime registry on a sex offender list. In some communities being on this list can make finding housing difficult. Some charges, for example those involving children, are prosecuted more vigorously than others. We handle cases including:

  • Stalking
  • Sex with a minor
  • Child molestation
  • Sexual harassment
  • Internet pornography
  • Sexual assault and/or battery
  • Prostitution, loitering, solicitation
  • Lewd or lascivious acts with a minor
  • Rape — date, forcible, spousal or statutory
  • Possession and distribution of child pornography

Defenses

DNA evidence can be invaluable to prove innocence. Consent is a common defense to sex charges, and the credibility of the complainant is often a key factor in how the evidence is viewed. Child pornography cases often are difficult for the prosecution because most computers are used by more than one person, and it can be difficult to prove that a person intended to possess child pornography.
