Skilled And Strategic Defense Against Serious Sex Crime Charges
In Louisiana, as in many other places, individuals accused of committing sex offenses face some of the harshest penalties available in the criminal justice system. And because the public condemnation of alleged sex offenders is swift and unyielding, prosecutors tend to be especially eager to secure convictions.
If you have been charged with a sex crime, you need an advocate in your corner who will ignore the public hysteria, fight to protect your rights and ensure that you aren’t railroaded by the criminal justice system. In Shreveport and surrounding areas, Alan J. Golden Attorney at Law is the clear choice for defense representation. Mr. Golden has over 35 years of legal experience as both a prosecutor and a defense attorney, and he is widely considered a respected authority on sex crimes defense in Louisiana.
Sex Crime Charges: A Basic Overview
Mr. Golden has the knowledge, experience and temperament to help you fight or otherwise resolve any sex offense charge, including:
- Prostitution or solicitation
- Rape (including date rape)
- Sexual assault
- Sexual battery
- Possession, production or distribution of child pornography
- Solicitation of a minor
- Aggravated rape of a child
In Louisiana, sex offenses are categorized into three tiers based on the seriousness of the offense and the estimated likelihood of repeat offenses. The tier of a specific action will influence sentencing guidelines and the amount of time a convicted person must be listed on a sex offender registry. A conviction in tier 3, which is the highest level of sex offenses, comes with lifetime registry as a sex offender.
Ready To Advocate For You At All Stages Of Your Case
Many people don’t contact an attorney until well after they’ve been charged and released on bail. This can be a mistake. The sooner you hire Mr. Golden, the more options you may have to mitigate the consequences you are facing.
Before charges are filed, he may be able to negotiate with prosecutors for reduced charges based on the details and available evidence. During the pretrial and trial phases, he will work tirelessly to challenge and discredit the state’s assertions and demonstrate your innocence. Finally, if the trial ends in a conviction, Mr. Golden can help you appeal the ruling, if possible, and/or seek a reasonable sentence that reflects the facts of the case – not the maximum sentence sought by prosecutors who are just trying to “set an example.” Attorney Golden understands what you are facing, and he will not stop fighting for you.
