The mere allegation of a sex offense can permanently damage a person's reputation, especially if the accusation is child molestation. The law firm of Christopher T. Adams, P.C., works very hard on the front end of sex crime investigations to have charges dismissed as unfounded.
If the case does go forward, prosecutors are less willing to negotiate and judges are unlikely to give a light sentence. If may well be necessary to go all the way to a jury to protect your freedom and avoid the lifetime burden of registering as a sex offender.
Experienced criminal defense lawyer Chris Adams provides the thorough and vigorous defense you will need. He takes cases in Gwinnett County and throughout Atlanta's North Metro area of Georgia. Call immediately for a free consultation at 800-582-0304.
Accused Of Another Sexual Offense?
We have obtained favorable results for clients who thought their life was over. Mr. Adams has represented parents, grandparents and relatives, teachers and day care providers, coaches, neighbors, church offices and others accused of a variety of crimes:
- Child molestation (fondling)
- Aggravated child molestation (penetration)
- Statutory rape (consensual sex with a minor)
- Internet solicitation of minors
- Possession of child pornography
If at all possible, we aim to head off formal charges by convincing the prosecutor that the abuse, assault or sex act did not occur. Initial reports often prove false — either it never happened at all or innocent behavior (helping a young child use the bathroom) was construed as sexual in nature.
Chris Adams looks into every aspect of the prosecutor's evidence for opportunities to challenge the charges. Are there witnesses, or only the child's version of events? Is there a motivation to lie? Who was present when the alleged victim was questioned? Did investigators ask leading questions to elicit a particular response?
Everything Is At Stake
Child molestation and other sex crimes carry heavy sentences, up to life in prison. We will always try to reduce charges if we can't get the case thrown out entirely, but even low-level offenses such as public indecency, can trigger sex offender status. Mr. Adams considers all the possible ramifications before making a deal, and he is prepared to fight for clients at trial to protect their reputation and their freedom.
