Powerful Sex Crime Defense in Lexington
Accusations of sex crimes are some of the most serious and reputation-damaging charges a person can face. Crimes of a sexual nature can not only expose you to a lengthy prison sentence, but they could also require you to register as a sex offender for the rest of your life. Sex offender registration can permanently tarnish your name and greatly limit your options for employment – even after you have served your sentence. If you are facing charges for any type of sex crime, our firm can protect you against these consequences and create a custom-tailored defense on your behalf.
We have the skills to defend you against the following sex crime charges:
- Sexual assault
- Sexual abuse and molestation
- Internet sex crimes
- False allegations
Domestic Violence Defense Solutions
Like a sex crime accusation, allegations of domestic violence can forever alter your future, your reputation, and your family. These nuanced cases often revolve around a “he said/she said” situation and false accusations can be a powerful leverage in the accuser getting their way in certain issues, particularly when seeking a favorable divorce settlement, custody arrangement, or alimony payment. Attorney Jacqueline M. Mayer has handled thousands of domestic violence cases and is fully aware of how to leverage weaknesses in the prosecution’s case for your benefit. When you’ve been accused, do not hesitate to contact us.
Defending the Accused Against a Wide Range of Charges
Whether you have been accused of a misdemeanor or a felony, our attorneys are ready to meticulously investigate the facts of your case and build a strong case for your defense.
