Have you been accused of sexual conduct with a minor in Los Angeles?

It goes without saying that any sex crime charge involving a minor will result in severe penalties if you are convicted. Sexual conduct with a minor is one of the most serious sex crime charges a person can face in California. A conviction may mean hundreds of years in prison, without the possibility of parole. Because sentences run consecutive to one another, you may face extremely harsh penalties if you are accused of more than one count of this criminal offense.

Sexual conduct charges that we defend for those involving minors include the following:
Child Molestation
Sodomy of a Minor
Statutory Rape
Oral Copulation with a Minor
Lewd Conduct
Lewd Conduct with a Minor

LOS ANGELES SEXUAL CONDUCT WITH A MINOR DEFENSE ATTORNEY

A Los Angeles criminal defense lawyer at Okabe & Haushalter can help if you or someone you love has been arrested for sexual conduct with a minor. Although these cases are difficult for any attorney to litigate, we are dedicated to helping our clients even when they face these charges. Many accusations are entirely false or may be exaggerated. We have seen cases where a minor will invent a story of sexual conduct or abuse or where another adult will make the accusation based upon false information. This is why it is so important that a lawyer at our firm conducts an independent investigation and evaluation of information, testimony and evidence in order to reach the truth of the matter.

As an American, you have rights. Even if you are accused of the most heinous or shocking of sex crimes involving children, you have the right to fair treatment and a trial. Your constitutional rights cannot be violated at any point during the investigation, your arrest or throughout the criminal trial. Your lawyer can work to ensure that your rights are upheld and can use any violations to have evidence suppressed or have your charges dismissed.
