When you face charges for sex crimes, your best strategy is to hire an experienced sex crimes lawyer like Robert Helfend. Mr. Helfend will fight aggressively for your rights and freedoms. In his more than 30 years of criminal defense practice, he has represented thousands of Southern Californians.
Many criminal defense attorneys don’t want to take sex crimes cases. When the victim is a minor, the case becomes even less attractive to some lawyers. Mr. Helfend does not judge his clients based on the charges against them. Instead, he works hard to prepare a rigorous defense.
Sex crimes convictions can lead to a lifetime of consequences. In addition to a criminal record, many sex offenders must register for life with local law enforcement. The “sex offender” label can make it difficult to find appropriate employment or housing. It can also interfere with established family and social relationships.
