Sex Crime Cases We Handle

If you have been accused of a sex crime, it is absolutely essential that you retain an aggressive Lexington sex crime attorney. At our firm, we are aware that false accusations, unfair treatment and overreaching authority can sometimes lead to wrongful convictions.

  • Sex Offender Registry Information - After a conviction, you will be forced to adhere to the Kentucky sex offender registry laws. These laws require a convicted individual's name, identifiable information, and crime to be posted to a public registry. This registry is viewable by family, friends, potential employers, and neighbors alike.
  • Internet Sex Crimes - Internet-related sex crimes can include unlawful transaction with a minor or child pornography. These crimes can be prosecuted at the state or federal level and you could potentially be facing prison time, fines and restitution, as well as lifetime registration as a convicted sex offender.
  • False Allegations - It may come as no shock that each year thousands of people are wrongfully accused of sex-related crimes. If you were wrongfully accused, it is important to immediately contact an aggressive attorney from our firm. We can fight to protect your name and your future!
  • Rape - Rape is an extremely serious offense that requires the representation of a talented attorney. Without the representation of our team, you could be facing a lengthy stint in prison, steep fines, and life as a registered sex offender. Following an arrest for rape, you need to work with Bleile & Dawson!
  • Sexual Abuse / Molestation - Any unwanted sexual contact with another individual could be charged as sexual abuse or molestation. These crimes can be charged in the first, second or third degree, and all hold serious penalties. After an arrest, contact a sex crime lawyer in Lexington as soon as possible.

Access to a Vast Library of Experts

Our attorneys have access to a broad array of resources and can utilize the knowledge of top experts and specialists when building your defense. Sex crimes often require a nuanced approach backed by scientific evidence and expert testimony. Our attorneys will consult various specialists to fully understand complicated details about a case. We have access to details prosecutors do not have. For example, we consult computer forensic experts, Sexual Assault Nurse Examination (SANE) experts, nurses, medical doctors, Ph.D psychologists, DNA scientists, and many others. Our firm has gathered this vast library of experts to exploit the faults in prosecutors' cases and give our client’s a fighting chance.

Powerful Sex Crime Defense in Lexington Put Experience in Your Corner

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.
