Augusta Sex Crime Lawyers

A Simple Misunderstanding Can Put You On The Sex Offenders' List

An accusation of a sex crime gives you a societal black mark, regardless of whether you are guilty. If you are convicted of a sex crime, you are required by Georgia and South Carolina state laws to have your name and information put on the state sex offender registry. This can make it impossible to get a job, find a place to live or apply for school. Our Augusta attorneys have extensive experience and knowledge about sex crime defense and will fight to prevent this from happening to you.

At Floyd Leopard, LLP, we have seen the damage that a sex crime conviction can do to a person's life. As former prosecutors, our lawyers know how broad the definition of a sex crime can be and how little it can take to end up on the sex offender registry. Our extensive knowledge of the law and the legal system gives us insight as to how the prosecution works and what they may or may not do. Let us guide you through your legal difficulty to the best possible outcome.

Branded For Life

Many sex crime convictions require that you stay on the sex offender registry for a certain number of years. Others require that you stay for life. Either way, this is a permanent mark that can follow you wherever you go. Some of these offenses have nothing to do with sex, such as the kidnapping of a child 14 or under. Others are based on the age of consent and result in 18-year-old boys being put on the sex offender list for having sex with their 15-year-old girlfriends.

Our firm has handled sex crime cases involving these and other issues:

  • Child molestation
  • Child pornography
  • Revenge porn
  • Sexual assault
  • Sexual battery
  • Kidnapping
  • Statutory rape
  • Prostitution
  • Indecent exposure

We fight hard to keep your name off the sex offender registry. We look for all available options in your situation, including getting charges reduced to a level that will not involve registration. We are honest about your situation and put your interests before anything else. As experienced trial lawyers, we have the skill and knowledge necessary to negotiate with the prosecution or defend your rights in front of a judge and jury.
