Adult Sex Crimes

Arrested for rape, molestation or prostitution?

At the Law Offices of Jacqueline Goodman, we recognize that sex crime accusations can carry extraordinary shame and fear on the part of the accused. Such charges also present uniquely challenging legal issues for defense attorneys. Adult sex crime charges can be both complex and harsh, which is why specialized knowledge of this area of the law is necessary when defending cases of this nature.

At our Orange County sex crime defense firm, we presume that our clients are innocent until proven guilty, and we work to prove that the adult sex offenders under our representation are, in fact, innocent.

Types of Adult Sex Crimes in Orange County

Adults can be charged with any number of sex offenses. Some common examples include:

  • Rape
  • Molestation
  • Indecent exposure
  • Child pornography
  • Prostitution
  • Lewd conduct

Although a few of these may be misdemeanor offenses - which are punishable by a fine of up to $1,000 and a jail sentence lasting up to one year- the majority are convicted as felonies. Felony sex crimes incur sentences in state prison, ranging from 16 months to life.

Sex offenses can also be "wobblers," which means that the offense could be convicted as a misdemeanor or a felony. We are dedicated to fighting for justice and will not presume guilt for any client, no matter what charges they are facing. Call today to schedule a consultation to learn how our firm can defend you against the adult sex crime allegation that you are facing.
