Sexual Offenses: What You Need To Know

Facing a sex crime is an incredibly difficult experience to go through. Not only do prosecutors tend to fight hard for convictions, but also the social stigma surrounding these crimes can be intense. During this time, it is important not to lose hope – but it is even more important to consult with a qualified criminal defense attorney.

Aggressive Criminal Defense, Respectful Client Service

Phillips Law is an established legal practice located in New Orleans, serving clients throughout Louisiana. We have a dedicated focus on criminal law and have helped many past clients successfully defend against sexual criminal charges.

If you have been charged with a sex crime, do not make the mistake of thinking you can prove your own innocence by talking to the police without an attorney present. Innocent statements can be misconstrued and used against you. Any information you voluntarily give to police can be used to make an arrest. The sooner you get our law firm involved, the better.

We understand the seriousness of sex crime charges and know our clients are greatly concerned about the stigma of an accusation and the possibility of jail time and sex offender registration. Our attorneys will conduct an in-depth review of the evidence in your case. We are skilled at finding holes in the prosecution’s arguments. While we have had great success in obtaining favorable results through dismissal of the state’s charges or plea bargaining to lesser offenses, we are fully prepared to litigate your matter in court if it is in your best interest.

As your legal counsel, we understand the sensitive nature of your matter and provide respectful and confidential representation. Our job is to protect your rights and ensure that you have the aggressive defense to which you are entitled. We defend people accused of all types of sex crimes, including:

  • Rape
  • Statutory rape
  • Unlawful touching
