Honolulu Sex Crimes Lawyer | Attorneys for Freedom Law Firm

Honolulu Sex Crimes Attorney

Being accused of a sex crime can be very embarrassing and stressful.  These crimes are serious and are often prosecuted very aggressively.  Being convicted of a sex crime can have major life-altering consequences.  These consequences can include lengthy prison time, lifetime sex offender registration, hefty fines, as well as the stigma of being a convicted sex offender.  This could prevent you from gaining employment, renting an apartment, and many other things you previously took for granted.

Sex crimes can be complex and often involve DNA evidence such as blood, saliva, and hair samples.  It is important that these samples are properly collected and stored.  But in many cases police may not properly preserve this evidence while collecting it.  Improperly handled or tainted evidence can adversely affect the outcome of a case.

 

Sex crimes can include:

  • Rape
  • Date rape
  • Statutory rape
  • Sexual assault
  • Indecent exposure
  • Child molestation
  • Internet solicitation of minors
  • Sexual abuse
  • Internet sex crimes
  • Sex trafficking
  • Prostitution

I am a client of the Attorney's For Freedom Law Firm's "Attorney On Retainer" program (as well as... their "Self-Protection plan"). I had an unfortunate explosion involving a firearm ("accidental discharge") that was a possible felony charge in Arizona. One call to Jonathan and it was all taken care of with no further action required on my part. They truly "just a phone call away"...read more

I want to thank Rachel Moss for her excellent work on my case. It was a traffic case that the DA... would not dismiss, Rachel got the charge dismissed without a trial and killed the DA with the facts and case law. There are lots of Lawyer jokes out there but when you need a lawyer, turn to "Attorneys for Freedom Law Firm" , no jokes just results.Terry Lread more
