Fighting Sex Crime Charges In California
A conviction for a sex crime may result in severe penalties that may include a lengthy prison sentence, mandatory sex offender registration, and court-ordered in-patient or out-patient counseling services.
If you have been charged with a sex crime, the attorney you choose may be the most important decision you ever make. Contact Bird & Van Dyke today to find out more about our aggressive approach to sex crimes defense.
The Need For An Aggressive Attorney
Sex crimes cases are unlike any other criminal charge. Due to the public’s revulsion of such crimes, sex crimes are explosive by their very nature. The presumption of innocence that is guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution can be put to the test in these cases.
If you have been charged with a sex crime, you need an attorney who is an experienced negotiator and trial lawyer. If your case is not dismissed or resolved by a plea agreement, you need an attorney who is unflinching, an attorney who will provide a vigorous defense on your behalf.
Criminal Defense Attorney Mary Ann Bird
As a former prosecutor and public defender for San Joaquin County, Bird has extensive experience in criminal cases involving allegations of a sex crime:
- Forcible rape
- Statutory rape
- Sexual assault
- Lewd acts with a child
- Contributing to the delinquency of a minor
- Child pornography
“Sex crime cases are probably the most time-consuming cases I have handled. In addition to time spent investigating and researching, I have to help clients psychologically. People charged with a sex crime are devastated. They feel like they have been judged by their community. I not only provide an aggressive defense for my clients — I prepare them for the fight at hand.” – Mary Ann Bird
