Sex crime charges can destroy your reputation, business/career, and your family. Ensuring your rights and reputation are protected is crucial. That is why it is crucial to contact an experienced sex crimes attorney before charges are filed.
The notion of personally autonomy and freedom from un-consented contact is integral to the American Judicial System. As such, sex crimes in Oklahoma carry extreme penalties and collateral harm far beyond the scope of normal felony conviction consequences.
Moreover, sexually related crimes are highly publicized and often times expose both the accused and his or her family to intense scrutiny.
Our defense lawyers are skilled at working with a wide variety of internet sex crime charges. We understand prosecution strategies and provide highly effective results for our clients in all of the following types of cases:
The Oklahoma Legislature has taken great steps to protect the children of this state. As such, the state prosecutes crimes against children very vigorously. The state considers everyone under the age of 16 a child for purposes of its statutes. As such, any person under the age of 16 cannot give legally recognized consent to engage in intercourse.

Lewd molestation laws are sometimes vague, but always severe. As part of OK's obscenity laws, both solicitation of a minor and lewd acts carry a hefty punishment range regardless if there was actual physical touching involved in the allegations.
Most sexually-related crimes are charged as felonies. As such, a conviction will likely result in felony conviction consequences. However, this is hardly the end of the line; the vast majority of defendants convicted of a sex crime in Oklahoma will also have to register pursuant to the Oklahoma Sex Offender Registration Act.
The ramifications of registering as a sex offender in this state are totally life-altering. Sex offenders in Oklahoma are treated as second-class citizens. Furthermore, the Oklahoma Sex Offender Registration Act has been amended with such great frequency and lack of oversight that the registration requirements could become even more debilitating. Though the registration requirements serve a fine purpose in protecting our communities from those truly dangerous sexual predators, the requirements must not be viewed lightly.
