Harrisburg Sex Crimes Defense Lawyers
In recent years, Pennsylvania law enforcement officials have stepped up their investigations and prosecutions of sex crimes, including Internet-based sex crimes, child pornography and child sexual abuse. A person charged with a Pennsylvania sex crime faces severe criminal penalties, mandatory registration and reporting under Megan's Law and, of course, the terrible social stigma that goes along with these cases.
Sex crime charges, now more than ever, call for an experienced, aggressive criminal defense attorney.

Call (717) 775-7195 for Advice From a Proven Sex Crimes Defense Attorney
There are often opportunities to seek legal advice before formal sex crime charges are filed, especially in cases where the accuser and the accused know each other. We urge you to contact us at the first moment you become aware that you're under investigation.
Any effort to talk your way out of trouble will probably make things worse for you. The best conversation you can have with the police or a detective will be short, polite, and limited to "I'd rather not talk to you without my lawyer present."
