Sex Crime Defense Attorney in York, PA
If you’ve been charged with a sex crime in Pennsylvania, effective representation can mean the difference between a fair trial and a media circus. Sexual assault, child pornography and rape charges all have a strong emotional component which can make it difficult for the facts to get heard.
MPL Law Firm in York has more than 30 years of experience representing clients in the central PA area against all types of sex crimes and other criminal charges. With solid communication and empathy for your predicament as a foundation, we’ll work with you to ensure you receive the fair trial that’s promised to you by law.
Protecting your rights without judgment.
When you’re facing charges for a sex-related offense, it can be easy to feel like the whole world is against you. At MPL Law Firm, however, we believe everyone is innocent until proven guilty. We’ll listen to your version of events and collect the evidence required to mount a strong defense in your case.
We’ll explore all opportunities to get the charges against you dropped or reduced. We also understand that these types of cases are highly sensitive — when you choose our sex crime attorneys to represent you, we are committed to protecting your privacy and your right to a fair trial at every step.
What’s at stake if you’re convicted of a sex crime in Pennsylvania?
Depending on the nature of the offense, anyone found guilty of a sex crime in Pennsylvania can face jail time, fines and other stiff penalties. Offenders will also have their information on the state sex offender registry for a minimum of 15 years — a fact that can impact all aspects of your life, including your ability to find work and housing. PA has adopted Megan’s Law, which makes the identity of anyone convicted of sex-related offenses — ranging from invasion of privacy to rape and statutory sexual assault— publicly available.
Make sure your story is heard.
At MPL Law Firm, we believe the only fair trial is one that’s conducted in court. Too often, when someone is accused of a sex crime in Pennsylvania, their fate is determined in the media and in the court of public opinion before they have a chance to defend themselves. That’s why MPL Law Firm works closely with you to ensure your side of the story is heard as quickly as possible, mitigating the effects of a potential media frenzy.
When we represent clients against sex crime charges, we strive to take a nuanced view of the situation. Our attorneys also work to ensure the facts of any case take precedence over sensationalism. If you’ve been accused of a sex crime and don’t know where to turn, let us help. Contact MPL Law Firm in York for a consultation with one of our sex crime attorneys. We’ll review your case, listen to your needs and give you a realistic assessment of your options going forward.
