The Oregon Legislature has classified rape, sodomy, unlawful sexual penetration, sexual abuse, child pornography offenses, compelling or promoting prostitution, and certain other offenses as “sex crimes.”
If a defendant is convicted of a sex crime, he or she will most likely have to register as a sex offender and engage in sex offender treatment. Additionally, being convicted (or even accused) of a sex crime can adversely affect a parent’s custody and visitation rights. Criminal allegations of sexual abuse are very emotional and, in my experience, some of the most difficult charges to defend.
I am an attorney based in Medford, Oregon, and I offer representation for those accused of sex offenses. My law office is in the heart of Jackson County, and I have represented scores of Southern Oregon clients charged with sex offenses. I have the experience and training necessary to offer a vigorous defense in allegations of sexual abuse. I have obtained acquittals and dismissals on behalf of my clients in several sex crime cases, including Measure 11 and Jessica’s Law cases.
