Allegations involving sexual offenses present unique considerations, challenges and consequences that require the attention of a skillful lawyer. A conviction not only leads to standard types of criminal punishment but can also trigger listing on the Nevada Sex Offender Registry. If you’ve been accused of sexual assault, misconduct involving a child or another type of sex crime, you need to mount a carefully prepared defense. Miley Law Firm, P.C. in Las Vegas delivers strong counsel to counter accusations that could lead to a significant prison sentence and permanent harm to your reputation.
My firm represents Nevada clients who are facing charges relating to improper acts of a sexual nature, such as:
In addition to facing time in prison, you also will be added to the state’s sex crime registry if you are convicted of sexual assault, statutory sexual seduction or various other sex-crime felony charges. With consequences that could affect the rest of your life, it is vitally important to retain a criminal defense attorney with an established track record in these matters.
Crimes stemming from accusations of unwanted sexual contact can be complicated to defend. Sometimes, there may be evidence that the purported victim consented to the activity in question or that they made a false allegation because of underlying problems in a relationship. I understand the importance that might lie in seemingly small details. Through a detailed review of the circumstances and skillful witness questioning, I have the ability to find the truth of what actually occurred and present it in court. Relatively recent changes in Nevada law extend the statute of limitations in cases of alleged sexual assault to 20 years, but if there has been a long delay in reporting a case against you, there may be grounds for dismissing it.
