Sex crimes cases: often posing distinct and singular challenges

Being accused of a crime -- any crime -- is obviously a harrowing and even extremely frightening experience. The criminal justice system in California is formidable, with the nearly incalculable resources of authorities -- police departments and investigators, forensic teams, prosecutors, judges and other parties -- being on ready display in virtually every case.

And the potential consequences that attend to a criminal allegation and conviction can be dire, if not severe and flatly life-altering. Heavy fines and other penalty exactions are doled out in select cases. Jail time can be mandated, with lengthy prison terms facing some defendants.

Sex crime charges and prosecutions can be a singular realm unto themselves, given their often stigmatizing nature. Many persons facing the justice system in connection with an alleged sex crime are adjudged guilty by justice officials and the public even before the evidence is introduced and carefully evaluated.

As we note on our website at the Bay Area-based Law Office of John W. Noonan, the special nature of a sex crime makes defending against an allegation of illegal sexual conduct "one of the most demanding challenges that a criminal defense attorney can undertake."

The details of an alleged sex crime can sometimes be extremely murky, if not amorphous. Issues surrounding consent can be unclear and complex. False allegations are sometimes made. Misunderstandings can occur in Internet communications. Age can be miscalculated. Where minors are concerned, date rate and statutory rape-related investigations can be tinged with uncertainty.

A proven defense attorney with experience representing persons charged with sexual offenses can provide knowledgeable guidance and diligent representation against criminal charges.

Our firm has been representing clients facing sex crime charges for decades. We know that every person charged with a crime has a need -for sound legal defense (and a constitutionally recognized right to it), and we are proud of the role we play as advocates in the legal system.

We welcome readers' inquiries and close scrutiny of our firm.
