Sex Crimes/Child Abuse Cases
One of the most sensitive cases that can be heard in any court of law is one that involves a crime against a child.

If you live in Okaloosa County and have been charged with a crime against a child, we can represent you to make sure you are treated fairly.

Sex Offender Representation
One such charge that is often impossible to overcome is one of a sexual nature when it involves a minor. If you have been charged with a crime of this magnitude, you need to find a sex offender attorney that knows the law back to front, because, without proper representation, you could pay for it for the rest of your life.
When you are searching for sex offender lawyers in Okaloosa County, you need to make sure that you find one that will hear you out and have your best interests in mind. If you have been wrongly accused, you will need them to present a case that can show that you are innocent, despite the fact that most people will assume you are guilty before the trial even starts. A sex crimes lawyer can also try and get you the most reasonable sentence possible if you are found guilty or can try to plea on your behalf.
If you have been accused of this heinous crime, and are going to stand trial, it is natural that you are feeling scared, angry, and confused as to how this all happened. Our sex crimes attorneys at ASG have been through this process and can help you be prepared for what is to come during the trial. You will need to keep a level head, and without the experience of a lawyer that has handled cases like these for several years, you will not come off well to the court.
Before the Trial
Our sex crime lawyers have represented clients in Okaloosa County on a variety of different charges. These include:
- Child Molestation
- Rape and Sexual Battery
- Child Pornography
- Indecent Exposure
- And More
Every one of these charges come with significant penalties if you are convicted of them, so finding a sex crimes attorney that knows what they are doing is the most important thing you can do.
Furthermore, if you have been accused but not yet charged, do not wait for charges to be filed before contacting a lawyer experienced with defending people accused of sex crimes. You need to be represented immediately, as anything you say to the police while you are in custody can be held against you. In crimes of this nature, anything you say could mean the difference between conviction and acquittal. Also, if a conviction does happen, an experienced sex crime attorney can help see that you are given the appropriate sentence. You could avoid jail time and might not have to register as a sex offender if you are adequately represented.
Child Abuse and Child Neglect
For many cases in Okaloosa County, it is not just crimes of a sexual nature that could happen involving a child. If you have been charged with abusing or neglecting a child in any way, the same stigma could follow you for life. Our child abuse attorneys are experienced in these cases as well. Similarly, if you have been falsely accused of abusing or neglecting a child, having an experienced child abuse lawyer on your side can make all the difference during the trial.
Experienced child abuse lawyers understand that while all the charges that are levied against their clients are extremely serious, there is also the welfare of the child involved at stake. Our goal is to fairly represent you in court while trying to not psychological damage the child in question any more than they already have been. The majority of cases that involve the abuse or neglect of a child are when both the child and the accused are family members. Even if the charge against you is false, you still need to make sure that the welfare of the child remains intact.
Finding a child abuse attorney at ASG Legal could be your best option for getting your life back. You can contact us at 850-863-4064 for more information. We are waiting to hear from you.
