Kenosha Sex Crimes Attorney

Attorney for Sexual Assault & More in Kenosha County

No other types of crimes are stigmatized as heavily as sex offenses. Most other types of convicts are not required to enter their names on a public registry. Even some felony-friendly employers and landlords will not consider an applicant with a sex crime on their record. Furthermore, the sentencing associated with a sex crime is likely to be harsh - courts are rarely understanding or lenient when dealing with an alleged sex offender. Sentences of years in prison are very common, particularly in cases involving assaultive offenses such as rape or sexual contact with a minor. This type of charge ruins lives. If you have been accused of a sex crime, it is critically important that you begin working with a skilled criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. You may have defenses available that an attorney will be able to identify.

Brady Cole Trial Lawyers believes that everyone is entitled to the best defense possible regardless of what they have been accused of. Every defendant should be automatically presumed innocent until proven otherwise - although you may certainly feel as if you are already being treated as if you have been found guilty. We will conduct a thorough investigation into the allegations involved in your case so that we can identify the best way to defend you.

Sexual Assault Attorneys in Kenosha

Sexual assault is always a felony, but it can be charged as a first-degree or second-degree offense. Even the accusation alone can create serious problems in your life. Handling a sexual assault case involves defending more than your legal rights - your reputation and future prospects are also at stake.

To obtain a sexual assault conviction, the prosecution must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you sexually penetrated the victim without their consent. These cases often hinge on the consent issue. In many cases, a trial is needed. We will do everything we can to give you the best defense available.

Sex Crimes Against Children

No crime is as widely despised as the sexual assault of a child. It is one of the most serious crimes in Wisconsin. Depending on the circumstances of the offense, you could face up to life in prison. This type of sentencing is more likely if the impact of the crime on the child was very serious or if violence was allegedly used. In nearly all cases, the sexual assault of a child is an extremely serious charge.

The age of the child is also a factor. If the child was 16 years old or older and purported to consent, you may be charged with Wisconsin's version of statutory rape, which is a slightly less serious offense that may be handled as a misdemeanor. However, if the child was younger than 16 years old, you are likely to be charged with a more serious offense.

Child pornography is another very serious type of offense. You will likely be charged with a felony if you are accused of possessing or distributing material depicting minors engaging in sexual conduct.

Defending those charged with a sex crime against a minor can be challenging. Our attorneys are experienced in this field, and we will provide you with the best available defense.

Prostitution Related Offenses

Prostitution, while common, is illegal for all involved - prostitutes, people who hire them, and traffickers ("pimps") alike can all be held criminally accountable. You could be charged with either a felony or a misdemeanor depending on your role in the transaction or attempted transaction. People who are accused of human trafficking in which they allegedly compelled others to engage in prostitution will face the most significant felony charges, while pandering or patronizing a prostitute or voluntarily engaging in prostitution is more likely to be charged as a misdemeanor.

If you are facing any charges related to prostitution, you must begin working with a skilled attorney right away to give you the best chances of success in your case.
