Aggressive Defense for Criminal Charges

St. Augustine Sex Crimes Attorney

Find Out How You Can Protect Your Future

If you stand accused of committing a sexual crime, you are already feeling the consequences of a destroyed reputation, and you could be facing the prospects of prison, steep fines, and a lifetime as a registered sex offender.

Types of Sex Crime Charges We Fight Against

At Taylor & WaldropAttorneys, the majority of serious cases that our St. Augustine criminal defense attorneys handle involve allegations of sex crimes.

Including criminal allegations of:

  • Indecent exposure
  • Child pornography
  • Child molestation
  • Prostitution
  • Sexual battery
  • Rape
  • Statutory rape
  • Lewd and lascivious battery
  • Inter-familial sex crime cases
  • Solicitation of minors (e.g. "cybersex chat")

Challenging the Evidence in a Sex Crime Case

In an effort to protect minors and other potential innocent victims from sexual predators and assailants, society has enacted laws that can present challenges for defense lawyers. For example, a consensual act between a 24-year-old boyfriend and his 17-year-old girlfriend may result in legal penalties similar to those of a rape in a dark alley by a stranger. No matter the complications involved in your case, however, we are confident that we can guard your every right in court.

An effective defense against a sex crime charge may involve the following:

  • Credibility of the accusing witness
  • DNA evidence
  • Issues of identification
  • Consent
  • Computer forensics to determine reliability of purported evidence
  • Entrapment (e.g. when police pose as minors in Internet chat rooms)

If you have been charged with sex crimes or are under a criminal investigation for such crimes in St. Augustine, Ponte Vedra, St. Johns, or the surrounding areas, we strongly urge you to contact our defense firm to arrange your initial consultation.
