Handling Your Case with the Utmost Diligence

Unfortunately, there is an increasingly large number of sex crimes within the United States, which is growing at an alarming rate.

If you are a victim of a sex crime accusation, you need more than a normal, general state attorney to represent you in court. Let our skilled Los Angeles sex crime attorney at Artz & Sturm Law Group defend you today.

Defense Against False Charges

Something that may have started as consensual sex may later be framed as non-consensual, leaving innocent people facing accusations of sexual misconduct, including rape. Embellishing or filtering a picture for profiles may be the norm, but other lies are more dangerous – they become instruments of sexual fraud.

These allegations can have serious repercussions, even if you don’t get charged with a crime. The alleged victim can ruin your reputation at your workplace, with your friends, and even within your family. Prosecutors are generally careful to only move forward with cases where there is solid evidence of wrongdoing, but sometimes innocent people get saddled with sexual assault charges. In these situations, you need a lawyer you can count on.

Types of Sexual Crimes

In Los Angeles, there is a large variety of sex crimes, with just as large a list of related penalties. 

Some examples of sex crime accusations we have successfully defended our clients from include:

  • Battery and sexual assault
  • Incest of family members
  • Domestic violence with a sexual nature
  • Acts of lewdness
  • Indecent exposure
  • Child pornography
  • Sodomy
  • Unlawful sexual penetration
  • Date rape
  • Rape by an acquaintance
  • Pimping
  • Online sexual crimes through sites like Tinder, Bumble, or online dating platforms

Consequences & Penalties

As seen above, there is a wide range of different types of sexual crimes. Consequently, there is also a large variety of the penalties that would result from a given conviction, dependent not only on the type of crime but the extent of the crime, as well as the age and vulnerability of the alleged victim.

For example, people who have been convicted of committing a crime of domestic violence can face up to four years of jail time and would need to pay fines up to $6000, along with 52 weeks of classes for rehabilitation from domestic violence abuse. However, the exact terms of each fine or months spent in incarceration depend on whether the crime had the seriousness of a felony or misdemeanor. It is important to have a knowledgeable lawyer familiar with each of the crimes and potential penalties incurred.
