According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one in four girls and one in six boys will be sexually abused before adulthood. Many of these crimes involve use of the Internet. As a result, law enforcement takes accusations of online sex crimes very seriously. Unfortunately, not every person approached by law enforcement is a sexual predator.
Internet sex stings have led to a proliferation of sex charges for offenses ranging from solicitation of a minor to possession of child pornography. Talking to police or anyone without a lawyer can lead to an embarrassing arrest with devastating consequences.
The Berry Law Firm provides aggressive defense for sex offenses, including solicitation of a minor. With offices in Omaha and Lincoln, our sex crime defense lawyers represent clients throughout Nebraska. To make an appointment, call (402) 817-6550 or contact us online.
The accusation of a sex crime involving a minor can turn a person’s life upside down. While people are supposed to be presumed innocent until proven guilty, the police and the public tend to believe the alleged victim in sex crime cases. Once a person is accused of a crime, the police and prosecutors may focus their efforts on obtaining a conviction, not clearing the innocent.
While preparing your defense, our lawyers will also work to protect your reputation. If there is a way to avoid criminal charges, our lawyers will work hard to find it. Our goal in any case is not only to protect our clients from jail time but also from devastating collateral effects such as lifetime registration as a sex offender.
