Sex Crimes

The mere accusation of having committed sexual abuse or rape can convict a person in the court of public opinion long before that person ever gets a day in court.

I'm Lackawanna County sex crime attorney Bernard J. Brown, and I understand the stigma attached to these kinds of charges. A conviction of this crime can include Megan's Law registration. That's why I fight tirelessly for my clients in northeastern Pennsylvania to get the best possible outcome. I have helped many clients avoid significant prison sentences and get on with their lives.

Hire a Carbondale Sex Offense Attorney Who Gets Results

If you or a loved one has been charged with a sex crime, the most important step is to retain the services of a knowledgeable, aggressive lawyer who will protect your rights. It's extremely important not to give statements to police investigators before you have consulted with an attorney.

I have taken sex crime cases to trial and won, but I've also worked with prosecutors to negotiate agreements on lesser charges when it made sense for my client. I will review the facts of your case and look for inconsistencies in the prosecution's case.

I represent clients against all sex crime charges, including:

  • Sexual assault
  • Rape and statutory rape
  • Exploitation
  • Indecent assault
  • Child abuse
  • Child molestation
  • Child pornography
  • Failure to register as a sex offender

Many sex crimes these days involve activity that starts on the Internet. My knowledge of Internet technology helped me successfully defend a client who was falsely accused of being involved in Internet-based child pornography.

I can answer many of your questions regarding a sex crime charge that you or a loved one is facing in a free initial consultation. Call 570-281-8117 to schedule one, or you can reach me through my online contact form.
