WHAT ARE THE PENALTIES FOR CHILD MOLESTATION?
Child molestation is likely to warrant felony charges in Georgia.
If you are convicted you could be imprisoned for up to 25 years and pay
thousands in fines, depending on the felony classification. No matter the severity of the charges, you will also be required to register
as a sex offender, likely for the rest of your life, which ruins your
good name and could hamper your career.
As a former prosecutor, I have a unique insight into how the criminal justice
system works when handling serious
sex crime cases, such as a child molestation case.
Advantages I gain as a former prosecutor defending the accused include:
- Ability to anticipate the opposition’s motions.
- Easily create counterarguments against the prosecution’s reasoning.
- Insistence on using an unbiased jury for your trial.
- Leverage for lessened sentencing if a plea bargain is necessary.
Every step I take in your case is a step towards your defense. I understand
that it is more important than ever to ensure people accused of child
molestation to get the defense our country promises them. With my knowledge,
dedication, and know-how, I hope you can feel comfortable with how your
case is developing and try to forge ahead despite the harsh accusations
Combating False Accusations & Exaggerations
An unknown yet presumably high percentage of a sex crime and child molestation
accusations are based on hearsay, exaggerations, and outright lies. Since
everyone in our society knows that someone who is merely accused of being
a child molester will be ostracized for the rest of his or her life, it
is tempting for dishonest individuals to use an accusation as a weapon
against them. In many cases, the accusations come not from a child but
from a spouse, and usually right in the middle of a heated divorce case.
I have seen my clients’ reputations damaged by harsh and inaccurate
accusations in the past, and I will continue to do my part in bringing
the truth to light so long as I am practicing criminal defense in Dahlonega
