Sex offenses are among the most serious charges a person can face. If you are convicted, you face a lengthy jail or prison sentence and the stigma of being a sex offender, and most sex offenses require mandatory lifetime registration with the police as a sex offender. This registration requirement affects your employment, your social life and even dictates where you can live. It is vital that you are represented by the best defense attorney in the area.
In our long experience as criminal defense attorneys, Casciola & Galambos, LLP, have defended hundreds of people accused of sex crimes and other serious felonies and misdemeanors. An effective defense can be presented by examining the facts, the relationship and the subtle weak spots in the claims raised by the police and prosecution.
A substantial number of clients had not committed the crimes they were accused of. Many had not done much that the prosecutor accused them of doing. Effective and creative advocacy on your behalf can make the difference between a lifetime of registration trauma. Solutions may exist that free you from the aspects of the legal system that worry you most. Your duty to yourself is to explore all options in your case, while the opportunity to change direction exists. If you have been accused of a sex crime, we will work to build a strong defense with the aid of private investigators and experts to protect your rights and preserve your freedom.

Careful Case Preparation Can Produce Positive Results
Sex crime allegations can rest on both physical evidence and the testimony of the alleged victim and other witnesses. At Casciola & Galambos, LLP, our lawyers begin every defense effort by carefully investigating the nature of the charges and the evidence against our client. We associate with veteran private investigators who know the defense of serious offenses and can support and enhance your defense and increase your chances of a successful outcome. After reviewing all of the available evidence we analyze the strength of the evidence on a systematic basis to anticipate the prosecutor’s arguments and develop rebuttal arguments.
Early in the case preparation process, we often speak directly with the prosecutor assigned to the case to better understand his or her thinking. Depending on the facts of the case, we may be able to convince the prosecutor not to file the charge or to file a less serious charge instead.
Obtaining The Best Result Possible
Our goal is to obtain the best outcome possible. Given the evidence and circumstances of the case, this may be a dismissal of the charge, a plea negotiation to a reduced charge, or an alternative sentencing outcome involving rehabilitation and treatment services. When our clients make the decision to go to trial, we provide the most effective defense possible.
Casciola & Galambos, LLP, will work to build a strong defense of your rights and freedom.
