SEX CRIME CHARGES

Sex offenses are among the most serious felony crimes in North Carolina.  Sex-crime cases often generate publicity and evoke strong public emotions, and prosecutors are extremely motivated to secure convictions.  False allegations of sexual abuse can destroy a person's family, reputation, and livelihood, even if the allegations are later found to be not credible.  If you are convicted of a sexual-related offense, you could face the possibility of significant prison time.  You could also be required to register as a sex offender, or even be forced to wear a GPS satellite monitor for the rest of your life.  If your case is selected for prosecution in federal court, the consequences can be even more severe.

If you are being investigated for allegations of sexual misconduct, or if police have served a search warrant at your home or office seeking evidence of pornography or other offenses, you need to contact a lawyer immediately. If you have actually been charged with a sex crime, or if you have already been convicted of a sex offense, you need strong and effective legal counsel and you need it now.

Dan has significant experience defending clients against a full range of sex-related offenses, both at the trial level and on appeal and in both state and federal courts. Dan routinely helps people through sex offense related charges, including:
