Sex Crimes

If you have been charged with any sexually related criminal offense, from statutory rape to possession of child pornography to rape of a child and aggravated sexual battery, you need a very experienced lawyer and one that has handled these specific types of criminal charges in the past.  Even if a defense lawyer has significant experience, it might be the case that he or she has not handled sexually related offenses in the past.  These are not the type of charges that you want to have and hope that your lawyer will be able to get up to speed on while they are working on your case.  You need a lawyer in this type of case that is already familiar with the nature and prosecution of sexual assaults and is prepared to hit the ground running in representing you.

Mr. Russ has handled these sensitive and difficult for almost ten years.  Mr. Russ has handled several dozen sexually related cases and tried multiple cases to verdict in front of juries on sexually related charges.  Let this experience work for you if you find yourself in a similar situation.  Hire a lawyer that knows how this part of the system works and who is prepared to fight for you in front of the jury to prove your innocence.  

Mr. Russ is also very familiar with the serious consequences of a sex conviction outside the specific terms of the sentence itself.  Knowing about the sex offender registry and community supervision, possibly for life, is a critical component to providing effective representation in these cases.  Depending upon the results in your case, you may not be able to live in the same place you had previously, work in the same place, or even see members of your own family.  Let Mr. Russ' experience help guide you through the additional difficulties that you may experience with a conviction of this variety even after your case and sentence are "over".
