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. In the face of such grim possibilities, you urgently need a trial-tested defense attorney on your side.

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.

We Come Highly Recommended

  • Thank you Brad for representing me and getting the job done!

    “I would like to thank Brad Waldrop for his representation in my Community Control violation case. I was facing 48 months in Florida State Prison in Flagler and Saint Johns County. From the moment I first called and Spoke to Mr. Waldrop to the end of my case he remained professional,knowledgeable and encouraging. Mr. Waldrop responded to all of my e-mails in a timely manner even when he was on vacation this man answered my questions via e-mail. The final outcome of my case ended up with a reinstatement of Community Control in both Flagler and Saint Johns County. I never thought that I would be able to avoid prison as I was charged with Aggravated Stalking which carries a mandatory prison sentence. Mr. Waldrop in my opinion is an excellent Attorney and I would recommend him to anyone seeking legal aid. Thank you Brad for representing me and getting the job done!!”
