Sex Crimes Lawyer - The Law Offices of J. Scott Smith

High Point Sex Crime Defense

Being accused and even charged for a Sex Crime is a demoralizing event.  With the variations in what is considered a Sex Crime, you may even be unaware what you are being accused of. The accusation alone can be detrimental to your future, let alone a conviction may lead to fines, jail time and registration on a national database of sex offenders.  

Are High Point Police Invastigating You for a Sex Crime?

During an active investigation you are not obligated to speak to police. It is your right, first and foremost to call upon representation. NEVER SPEAK TO POLICE WITHOUT FIRST CONSULTING WITH A LAWYER.  While we are taught to trust the police, the POLICE CAN LIE to get a confession.

You may think, “I didn’t do anything wrong. I’ll be fine talking to the police.” If the police see you as a suspect however, what you say can be twisted and used against you. Their job is to make arrests for a crime, their job is not to determine your innocence.  That is the very reason why having an experienced attorney is of utmost importance when facing Sex Crime charges. Our legal team at LAWSMITH, The Law Offices of J. Scott Smith, PLLC, have handled cases ranging from misdemeanor, like Sexual Battery and Prostitution, all the way to Felony Rape charges.  Free consultations are available to discuss your case today.
