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

  • The first time I really got some professional representation!

    “I retained MR. Waldrop for a case I was having trouble with. Ill say it was money well spent. He went above and beyond his duties. He was available most of the time to answer any questions, and above all, he proved that he had my best interests at heart. I've went through the ringer with bad lawyers. This was the first time I really got some professional representation. Having a good lawyer makes all the difference. The worst part about legal issues is not having peace of mind during uncertain times. Having MR. Waldrop on my case made all the difference. It was such a nice feeling to know that these guys had my back. He delivered with impressive results, and always kept his word. I highly recommend this firm to anyone needing legal representation. 10/10.”
