The law punishes individuals accused of sexual offenses more severely than any other offender. Prosecutors score points convicting people for unpopular crimes. Juries can be unsympathetic. The combination of a prison sentence and disgrace in the community is just too much for many people. Appearing on a nationwide sex registry leaves them with no way to live a normal life. Even acquitted individuals carry the stigma of having done something with a sexual aspect.
Sympathetic Upper Marlboro, Maryland, Rape Defense Lawyers
At the Law Offices of Thomas C. Mooney, we treat people charged with sex offenses as people deserving of respect and compassion. Most accused offenders are just ordinary people, not predators. Many are very young.
We apply the same aggressive approach defending them as we do with any other client. We demand that the prosecution do its job and prove without a doubt that the offense actually occurred – very often it has not – and that the arrest process was legal in every way.
Our attorneys have enjoyed great success in shielding people accused of a full array of sexual offenses:
- Statutory rape
- Date rape
- Indecent exposure
- Lewd behavior
- Sexual assault
- Child pornography
- Luring a child
- Internet crimes
