Melbourne Sex Crime Defense Lawyers
Convicted sex offenders in Florida quickly learn that their lives will never be the same. Even if they are spared time in prison, they face sex offender registration and severe damage to their reputation and career.
Platt Hopwood Russell & Cole, of Melbourne, represents people in and around Brevard County who have been charged with sex-related criminal offenses such as:
- Rape/sexual assault
- Statutory rape
- Computer sex crimes
- Possessing child pornography
- Producing or trafficking in child pornography
- Traveling to meet a minor
- Lewd and lascivious molestation
- Sexual battery
- Sexual battery by custodian
- Child molestation
- Harassment by sexting
There are effective defenses for sex crimes. Many are based on inconclusive “he said/she said” evidence. Some accusations are made out of anger or spite. Sometimes an offense may have occurred, but the wrong person is accused.
Effective Criminal Defense for Sexual Offenses With no Judgment
Our lawyers rely on their knowledge of statutory and case law, and on their years of experience contending with prosecutors.
Sex crime defense is never a sure thing, as juries can be quick to convict people charged with unpopular crimes. But with the skilled lawyers, with an aggressive attitude toward defending you, your chances of dismissal greatly improve.
If you are contacted by the police or by the Florida Department of Children and Families, it is important that you act quickly and decisively. The authorities intend to build a strong case against you. They are not your friends, even if they seem sympathetic. Do not talk to them.
