Protecting Your Rights When Facing Serious Federal Criminal Charges
A Tenacious Defense To Federal Sex Crime Charges
Standing accused of a crime is always frightening and that is perhaps never more true than when you are accused of a sex offense. The mere accusation that you committed a sex crime can be enough to damage your reputation and impact your family, your friendships and your professional life. If you find yourself in this situation, make sure you retain a skilled North Carolina federal criminal defense lawyer who understands what is at stake.
My name is Neil W. Morrison, and I am a defense attorney handling sex crime cases for clients across the Middle and Eastern Districts of North Carolina. I defend people living in Greensboro, Raleigh, Winston-Salem, Durham and beyond. Contact my office to arrange an appointment.
Wherever you live, my representation is designed to mitigate the criminal penalties you may face, including the distinct possibility of sex offender registration. I will also do my best to preserve your reputation and standing in the community, which are extremely important to anyone charged with sex offenses.
Defense Against A Wide Range Of Sex Crimes
At my law firm, I vigorously defend people from all walks of life who have been charged with sex crimes in North Carolina’s state and federal courts. Some examples of cases I handle include:
- Sexual assault/sexual battery
- Statutory rape
- Possession or distribution of child pornography
- Indecent liberties with a minor
- Sexual exploitation of a minor
- Internet sex crimes (online solicitation, luring, etc.)
- Sex trafficking
Finding Viable Defenses
I will investigate your sexual offense case thoroughly and tirelessly in an effort to obtain all the facts and understand what really happened. Defense strategies in such cases are the result of very hard work and the experience of having represented people with such charges. Each sex offense case is unique, and defenses in each case must be individually explored to illustrate the possibility of innocence.
For example, the alleged victim may be unable to identify the perpetrator or recall events of the evening, due to alcohol or drug consumption. Witnesses to the alleged event may be unreliable for a variety of reasons, including impairment or confusion. I will do everything possible to prepare you for what to expect in court and to develop the best criminal defense strategy moving forward in your case.
Sex offense cases, such as possession and distribution of child pornography, are prosecuted in federal court. There are mandatory minimums that arise in federal court in such cases and you must be aware that if you plead guilty you are guaranteeing yourself a significant amount of time in prison. You need a lawyer who has experience handling such offenses and can help you produce the result you deserve.
