Past Sex Crimes Cases

Some of the most common questions I receive from potential clients concern the types of sex crimes cases I have handled and the outcomes of those cases.

So rather than provide vague reassurance or unverifiable bravado about my ability to handle a particular sex crimes case, I have provided the outcome of every sex crimes case I have handled since 2004 below.

Only publicly available information is provided. This includes the charges, maximum penalty, the outcome, and my client's initials. All dispositions may be verified by contacting the clerk of the court.

To help you understand the seriousness of these cases, a penalty chart and penalty enhancement list is available for your review.
