Sex Crimes

Knowledgeable Sex Crime Defense

Few things can be more damaging to your reputation than the accusation of a sex crime. With the possibility of a sex offender registration, any conviction can be, in effect, a lifetime sentence.

I am Barry M. Lewis, a criminal defense lawyer in Chicago. If you have been accused of a sex crime, it is important to consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. Contact me for a free initial telephone consultation to discuss your case.

I defend people accused of all types of sex crimes, including:

  • Indecent exposure
  • Statutory rape
  • Sexual assault
  • Child molestation
  • Child pornography

The penalties for some types of sex crimes can be insane. For example, the minimum sentence for looking at 10 child porn images on a peer-to-peer file-sharing network is 60 years, since the accused are usually charged with distribution. If you are accused of child molestation, you could face a lengthy prison sentence and lifetime registration as a sex offender based on nothing more than the accusation of a child who may have been coached to testify against you.

Defenses In Sex Crime Cases

Sex crimes are usually very defensible using techniques taught at length by the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, of which I am a member.

In a child pornography case, I am very good at challenging the accusation that you attempted to distribute child porn images. In many cases, I can challenge whether the material actually is pornographic. My goal in a child porn or any other sex crime case is to do everything I can to avoid your lifetime registration as a sex offender.
