Sex Crime Representation
Sex crimes have a unique and particularly challenging place in our culture. While most people who face criminal charges are innocent until proven guilty, the public and even officials often deem those charged with this crime as guilty long before a court date is set. It is even common for family and friends to turn their backs on the accused, leaving those charged as outcasts in their own community.
The Hoover Firm, LLC, focuses exclusively on criminal defense representation, often defending clients charged with a sex crime. Attorney David Hoover understands what you are going through and can help build a case based on facts instead of innuendo and misinformation. Even law enforcement can jump to conclusions, perhaps making mistakes in the performance of their duties. We work with the clients to understand the circumstances involved in the case and determine the best options for moving forward.
Common Sex Offenses We Handle
We work with clients to make sure that their rights are fully protected under the law, often defending them against the following charges:
- Rape, marital rape, statutory rape and date rape
- Child pornography, crimes against minors or child molestation
- Involuntary deviate sexual intercourse
- Sexual assault or sexting
- Online solicitation or internet crimes involving sex
Defenses We Can Use Against These Charges
We are not here to judge our clients, but we are here to defend them in a Pennsylvania court of law. We understand that life is complicated, and sometimes a strong defense can clarify things. It can be a matter of the act never taking place, or that is was consensual. Perhaps the defendant was or is mentally incapacitated. No matter the circumstances, it is important for defendants to contact a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible.
