Penalties

If a person sexually abuses a child between the ages of 13 and 15 without force, the individual is guilty of a Class 4 felony. The punishment for the crime includes 2 to 10 years in prison and potentially a fine up to $100,000. If the crime involves an individual who is at least 3 years older than the child, and the child consents to the sexual acts, the individual is guilty of a Class 6 felony. A Class 6 felony could result in 1 to 5 years in prison, up to 12 months in jail, and / or a fine of up to $2,500.

In cases where the individual is less than 3 years older than the child, and the child consents to the acts, he or she is guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor, which can lead to a 12-month jail sentence and / or a fine of up to $2,500.

And individual convicted of child sexual abuse twice will be required to enroll in the Sex Offender Registry, which is open to the public and will likely lead to public censure.

Case Results

A Track Record of Success
  • Pre Litigation Defense – Rape Sex Crimes

    Our client was the respondent of a protective order wherein the petitioner alleged that she was raped. She sought a two-year protective order and was seeking to have detectives assist in securing warrants against him. We suspect that the admissions made on cross-examination by the alleged victim at the hearing will prevent the Commonwealth from bringing any charges.

  • Aiding Prostitution and Maintaining a Bawdy House Sex Crimes

    Our client was arrested during a sting operation of a massage parlor. The evidence showed our client frequenting this location and bringing out the trash multiple times. We were able to prove that our client had no known association with the owners or any ownership interest but was merely a friend of the manager. Charges were dismissed.

  • Lesser Charge on Appeal Sexual Battery

    Our client was charged with sexual battery when the victim, a passenger in our client's vehicle, alleged that our client had touched her private region against her will.

  • Case Dismissed Statutory Rape

    Our client was charged with several counts of statutory rape and was facing life in prison.
