Bronx Sex Crimes Lawyer
The Bronx, like much of the United States, has seen a startling increase in the number of sex crime incidents. Because of the large number of sex crime committed today such as rape, statutory rape, sex with a minor, forcible touching, sex abuse, sexual assault, sodomy, prostitution, internet sex crime, or solicitation, the New York District Attorneys are pushing hard for investigations and prosecutions to bring these alleged criminals to justice.
While all sex crimes are aggressively pursued, the type that gets the most attention is child pornography or kiddie porn. Technological advancements have made it easy for people to manufacture and distribute child pornography via cheap digital media devices and the internet. The problem has gotten so out of hand that the FBI is now working together with local officials in federal investigations to track down and apprehend people suspected of dealing child porn and other internet sex crime. By making use of undercover stings, surveillance and search warrants, the FBI has been able to make hundreds of arrests over the last few years and is currently pouring over confiscated hard drives and computers for evidence to build their cases.
Being accused of a sex crime is terrible, but being convicted can be even worse. Your life may be ruined and you may never be truly free ever again. If you're facing a charge of sexual abuse, possession of child pornography, sodomy, sex with a minor, visiting a prostitute or any other sex crime, our Bronx Sex Crimes Lawyer team at Stephen Bilkis & Associates, PLLC wants to discuss possible defense strategies with you. Our experienced and dedicated attorneys are available for a free consultation by calling 800.696.9529.
When a person is prosecuted for a crime, it's District Attorney’s job to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, and it's the job of the defense attorney to raise doubt in the mind of the judge or jurors. Our skilled Bronx Sex Crime Lawyer may be able to create a defense strategy in order to raise that doubt. The right strategy will probably depend mostly on the type of charge and what (if any) extenuating circumstances exist.
As an example, take a case of date rape. Cases like this are mostly “he said/she said” – one person’s word against the other. For example, two people engage in sex and one person alleges that consent wasn't given. The District Attorney must prove this allegation. However, there have been many cases where an alleged victim wanted to get back at their partner for some perceived wrong, and filed a charge of rape8. That's not to say that rape doesn't happen – it does, but it's not always a cut and dried situation. An experienced and dedicated Bronx Sex Crime Lawyer may be able to extract evidence and raise doubt by using the right defense strategy for their client.
