Sex Crimes

In the court of public opinion, anyone arrested for a sex crime is often presumed to be guilty. What truly matters, of course, is what happens in criminal court, where you are presumed innocent unless proven otherwise. Are the prosecution's theory and the victim's testimony credible? Do the evidence and the evidence gathering stand up to scrutiny?

Boyce, Leahy & Francescon, Lawyers, believe that all citizens charged with a crime are entitled to have their rights protected and entitled to a rigorous defense. Our criminal defense team draws on police and prosecutor experience to challenge the underlying basis for sex crime allegations.

Our Manassas law firm represents the accused in Prince William County and in all jurisdictions of northern Virginia. Contact us immediately for a confidential consultation (free for criminal and personal injury cases only).

Sexual Assault Attorneys In Woodbridge And Northern Virginia

Boyce, Leahy & Francescon, Lawyers, will assert your rights and defend you against any sex crime allegations, including:

  • Sexual assault and sexual battery (rape)
  • Indecent liberties with children (molestation)
  • Statutory rape (sex with minors)
  • Possession or distribution of child pornography
  • Internet solicitation of minors (or undercover cops posing as teens)
  • Soliciting a prostitute
  • Indecent exposure
  • Stalking or "peeping Tom"

Merely being charged with a sex offense carries a strong stigma. An actual conviction for illegal pornography or sexual battery could mean jail or prison time, plus the burdens and humiliation of both a felony record and being labeled as a sex offender.

We Know What's At Stake And We Know How To Fight This

Our lawyers will examine every facet of the prosecution's case to challenge the allegations. Founder William Boyce draws on his law enforcement background to question police methods, the physical evidence, and the testimony of the victim or witnesses. Does the accuser have a motive to fabricate rape charges? Did investigators have the proper training to interview a young victim? Did police overstep their bounds in the search warrant, undercover operation, interrogation or arrest?

We work with forensic experts, child psychologists and other experts to challenge DNA evidence, testimony of prosecution witnesses and every building block of the government's case. Our efforts sometimes result in dismissing the case, excluding evidence, downgrading charges or avoiding an arrest in the first place. We have also been successful in negotiating pleas that avoid prison or sex offender registry. Our team is always prepared to defend clients at trial if necessary to battle for their freedom.
