Protecting You And Your Reputation In Sex Crimes Cases
Sexual offense allegations in South Jersey are among the most painful accusations a person may face. As both a prosecutor and a criminal defense attorney, I have handled hundreds of sexual offense cases – they are all different and require individual attention. People who have never been in trouble at any time in their lives can find themselves or their juvenile children accused of horrendous crimes.
Just recently, I represented a doctor in Cherry Hill who was accused of molesting one of his patients. With my quick and thorough knowledge of New Jersey criminal law, I was able to get the charge dismissed before the client’s practice and reputation were ruined. I also handle many false claims of “rape.” Many girlfriends, mistresses or wives have been known to bring false and baseless claims, which is another reason why it is so important for anyone accused of rape, sexual assault, or any other sex crime in New Jersey to talk to me, criminal defense attorney Jill R. Cohen, as soon as possible.
Fighting Back Against False Allegations
New Jersey law enforcement and prosecutors often file sexual offense charges based on no evidence at all. In fact, they may bring these very serious charges without one shred of evidence, causing significant damage to the accused’s reputation and personal relationships. Moreover, the baseless charge can also result in incarceration for a very long period of time. These sexual offense charges have to be vigorously defended against.
The sooner I get involved, the better the outcome is likely to be. My goal is to keep you out of jail whenever possible. I defend clients against all types of sex crime charges in New Jersey, including:
- Aggravated sexual assault
- Sexual assault
- Criminal sexual contact
- Endangering the welfare of a child
- Megan’s law violations
- Failure to register as a sex offender
- Internet sex crimes
- Child pornography possession and distribution
- Juvenile sex crimes
- Child sexual abuse
- Promoting prostitution
Sexual Crime Charges And Sex Offender Registration Requirements In New Jersey
Accusations of sexual assaults are common in family and juvenile court in Winslow, Cherry Hill, Camden, Atlantic City, Monroe Township and Deptford, and elsewhere in South Jersey. For instance, young children may be accused of sexually assaulting friends and relatives when these allegations are frequently false. There can also be accusations of statutory rape or consensual assaults with children under the age of 16. My goal is to achieve the best possible outcome for my clients in these New Jersey juvenile sex crime cases. With my years of experience, I can often get these charges either downgraded or dismissed.
In many cases, I have prevented the accused from Megan’s law sex offender registration or parole supervision for life. I have also gotten first degree charges – even accusations of sexual assault against a 5-year-old – downgraded to minor crimes that do not require parole supervision for life. Parole supervision for life is a very difficult hurdle to overcome. If you are faced with the possibility of a sentence that carries parole supervision for life, you must seek competent legal counsel to prevent this outcome. Violations of Megan’s law or parole supervision for life will subject you to additional prison time – even for minor violations. It is important to defend against this type of sentencing factor.
