The effects of a sex crime conviction will remain with you for a lifetime. At the
Law Offices of Michael V. Cibella, LLC, a New York City criminal defense law firm, we understand how overwhelming sex crime charges can be, so we work with you to create a defense strategy aimed at clearing your name and protecting your future.
Manhattan Rape Attorney Protecting Your Reputation
Because of their private or unsettling nature, sex offenses are often difficult to defend. Charges can be brought by strangers, acquaintances, family members, and even romantic partners, and the lines that you are accused of crossing are either unclear or a flat out lie. We believe that in this complex area of law, it is important for you to have a seasoned criminal defense lawyer safeguarding your rights.
There are a variety of different criminal charges that fall under the category of sex crimes. We represent clients facing charges of:
- Sexual misconduct
- Course of sexual conduct
- Statutory rape
If you are convicted, you face being registered as a sex offender for life, even after any incarceration has ended. Disclosing your conviction on employment and rental applications going forward can have serious repercussions on your future plans. At the Law Offices of Michael V. Cibella, LLC, we guide you through all aspects of your case, including Sex Offender Registration Act (SORA) hearings. We can help you protect your future and move beyond this incident.
Building A Strong Defense Tailored To Your Situation
In a defense against sex crime charges, understanding forensic evidence that could be used against you is crucial. Our attorneys have experience with complex investigations and working with DNA experts. We analyze evidence collected by police and work with witnesses to find and attack holes in the case against you to establish defenses of mistaken identification or outright fabrication.
We will question the motives of witnesses and not allow a jury to jump to the same conclusions that the police or prosecutors may be so willing to jump to in order to make a case appear open and shut. We will zealously scrutinize and challenge every piece of evidence no matter how unseemly the allegations may be in order to get the best possible result for our client.
