Sex Crime Attorney in Jacksonville
Those facing criminal charges have many challenges, yet the situation is particularly complicated for those charged with sex crimes. Despite the fact that the state and federal courts are designed to provide due process for the accused, the stigma associated with this type of charge often causes people, including employers, friends and even family, to quickly draw their own conclusions before the accused ever walks into a courtroom. Finding a qualified lawyer is crucial to fighting these charges.
