Aggressive Defense of Sex Crimes
At Stone, Cardwell & Dinkin, PLC in Richmond, Virginia, we aggressively defend the interests of clients accused of all types of sex offenses, including:
- Aggravated sexual battery
- Computer solicitation of a minor
- Indecent liberties with a minor
- Lewd conduct
At our law firm, there is no such thing as an open and shut case. No matter what evidence the state has against you, we will fight to protect your freedom and your future.
Consent and Credibility
In sex crimes, the issue of consent is often key to a successful defense. Showing that our client believed the act was consensual is often enough to create a reasonable doubt in the minds of the jurors.
We also explore the motive and credibility of the other party. Did the plaintiff claim to be the victim of domestic violence in order to gain an advantage in a child custody battle or to get the defendant removed from the home?
Often, people accused of sex crimes have no prior criminal record and have led productive lives. Many are unaware of just how serious and life-changing the consequences of a sex crime can be.
