Aggravated Sexual Assault Lawyer in Camden County

You Deserve an Aggressive Defense Strategy

Sex crimes charges are undoubtedly serious. If convicted of a sex crime, you could face life-altering consequences. Penalties for sexual assault are harsh, but if you are convicted of aggravated sexual assault, you face twice the prison sentence of a standard sexual assault crime. In fact, at least 85% of the 20-year maximum prison sentence must be served before parole is even an option. In sexual assault cases involving minors, you could serve between 30 years and life in prison.

When your freedom is on the line and you are facing aggravated sexual assault charges, do not waste any time choosing an experienced, aggressive sex crime defense lawyer who can protect your rights. Attorney Jill R. Cohen has been practicing criminal law for over 30 years. She has tried numerous sexual assault cases in Camden County and has experience resolving cases favorably even before indictment.

Put Our Creative Defense Strategies to Work in Your Case

Time is not on your side! There is no statute of limitations on aggravated sexual assault cases in New Jersey. In fact, you can be charged for something you are accused of doing 30 years ago when you were a juvenile. This is why you should not waste any time in contacting our Camden County aggravated sexual assault defense lawyer.

As a former Camden County assistant prosecutor, Ms. Cohen knows all too well how difficult it is to prove aggravated sexual assault beyond a reasonable doubt. There are many things prosecutors must do to prove guilt in these cases.

First, the state has to prove that sexual penetration occurred. Sexual penetration includes fellatio, cunnilingus, digital penetration in the vagina or anus, sexual intercourse, and the insertion of an object into the vagina or anus.

Next, the following aggravating circumstances must be present for the prosecution to bring first-degree criminal charges:

  • Victim is older than 13 and younger than 16 years old, and the defendant is either family-related or has supervisory power to the victim.
  • Victim is younger than 13 years old
  • Defendant committed the act during the commission of a robbery, kidnapping, homicide, criminal escape, or aggravated assault
  • Defendant was armed during the sexual penetration and threatened to utilize the weapon
  • Defendant and one or more other individuals used force or coercion to commit sexual penetration
  • Defendant caused severe personal injury to the victim through physical force or coercion
  • Defendant knew or should have known that the victim was physically helpless, such as unconscious or mentally incapacitated

The prosecution typically faces many difficulties in cases against alleged sexual offenders. Ms. Cohen is prepared to use her knowledge of how prosecutors build their cases to craft a winning strategy to defend against your charges.

Whether it is a plea negotiation, a trial or getting the charges dropped altogether, we are committed to aggressively defending clients against jail time and lifelong consequences. We are also very well versed in the registration and parole consequences of sexual assaults in New Jersey and can help even after a conviction has occurred.

Let Us Fight to Protect Your Future

The aftermath of a sexual assault conviction is permanent – you will have a lifelong criminal record and will be labeled as a sex offender. This means you will have to register for the national sex registry under Megan’s Law.

Attorney Jill Cohen is one of a handful of lawyers certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Certified Criminal Trial Lawyer.
