The Need For A San Bernardino Sex Offense Defense Lawyer To Even The Odds

At the Law Offices of Catherine A. Schwartz, we represent residents throughout Riverside and San Bernardino counties charged with:

  • Rape
  • Statutory rape
  • Child molestation
  • Sexual abuse
  • Indecent exposure
  • Prostitution
  • Internet pornography
  • Lewd conduct

Handling a sex offense charge without the help of an experienced Riverside sex crime lawyer ignores the complexities of the law and the challenges you face. Stereotypes exist for those charged with a sex crime with the court of public opinion rendering an immediate "verdict" of guilty. The severity of the legal penalties depends on the following:

  • Prior criminal history
  • Type of crime committed
  • The victim or defendant being a minor
  • Extent of the victim's damages
