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 hired Attorneys For Freedom in 2020 for a very serious matter involving my significant other. I... spent a couple of hours calling around looking for attorneys and the ONLY attorney willing to talk to me on behalf of my significant other was Andy Marcantel. It was end of day and he took the time, to speak to me and to myself, my significant other and his family, the next day as well.I knew immediately, I wanted to hire Andy for this serious matter. My significant other was facing serious time and we were both terrified. I trusted Andy and his team to get the absolute, best, possible outcome. From the very beginning, Andy was nothing short of truthful, communicative, professional, informative, kind and hilarious.I would email Andy late at night with concerns or questions and he would communicate back immediately just to let me know he was scheduling us a meeting the next day to go over everything. For almost 2 years, Andy and his team worked diligently on this case and about 3 weeks ago, it went to court for the last time and my significant other received the BEST outcome possible. Considering what he was facing, I will never be able to thank Andy properly for his work but what I can do, is let EVERYONE know, if you’re in need of a law firm, I HIGHLY recommend Attorneys For Freedom. You will not be disappointed.There is so much integrity, kindness and care in that office.Attorneys For Freedom holds true to their mission statement and their values.Andy, I cannot thank you enough for everything and the time and effort you took to ensure we understood every single part of the case and the justice system. I’m eternally grateful to you.read more

I had my doubts at the beginning, Andy, is one of the best guys I have known. He answers every... question I ask, he is there from start to finish. He has a client now for the rest of my life, if anything were to happen. I cannot be more happier with the way these guys run their businessread more
