An individual charged with committing sexual abuse can benefit from the professional legal services of Buckmaster & Ellzey.

A sexual abuse conviction can limit career options, ineligibility for military or law enforcement jobs, and disqualification from certain professional licenses and types of employment that require security clearance or a position of trust. A parent convicted of a sex crime may lose a child custody award from a divorce.

A compelling defense is necessary against criminal charges when a person faces a loss of certain rights and freedoms. An individual with serious sexual abuse charges needs to contact a Daytona Beach criminal defense attorney for legal assistance and guidance following an arrest. It is best to speak with a defense attorney immediately to avoid making statements that prosecution can use later in their case. Our attorneys defend many clients facing criminal charges including sexual abuse offenses.

Types of Sexual Abuse

Sexual abuse crimes are serious with harsh consequences such as imprisonment, large fines, parole, court-mandated counseling, and rehabilitation programs. Penalties can increase if there were prior offense or the use of weapons or violence during the following sexual abuse crimes:

  • Rape, date rape, statutory rape
  • Sexual assault, sexual battery
  • Child molestation, child pornography
  • Internet sex crimes, solicitation or exploitation of minors

A defendant convicted of a sexual abuse crime has to register with local law enforcement, make whereabouts known, and check in periodically. Without permission, a sex offender cannot change residence, be within a specified distance from schools, playgrounds, and certain other locations. An offender in some circumstances may not work in a job that involves the close proximity of children. It is important to have an effective defense from knowledgeable and experienced criminal defense attorneys who can protect the rights of clients while dealing with the court system. Buckmaster & Ellzey has the skill and resources necessary to defend clients when facing charges that can adversely affect their lives.
