Sexual Abuse Defense Requires Experienced Representation
Our attorneys have more than 25 years of criminal defense experience. We understand the tactics that will be used against you, and that the odds are stacked against you as an accused person. It is difficult to convince judges, juries and even accused people's families of their innocence. However, Garton & Vogt, P.C., excels in the face of such stark odds. We have obtained many not guilty verdicts.
We can defend you against false accusations and entrapment. The testimony of children is often manipulated, and the prosecution's case relies heavily on character evidence and witness testimony. There are many possible defenses we can effectively use in a comprehensive strategy to defend your case and your future.
Child Molestation Penalties
Charges such as sexual assault of a minor or lewdness of a minor carry the high possibility of a long prison sentence, loss of parental rights, loss of child custody, severe damage to your reputation and livelihood, and potential lifetime registration as a sex offender. Call us immediately if you are being investigated.
Child Abuse/Neglect Penalties
Harm or the threat of harm to a child's health or welfare can include nonphysical acts as well. If you are a parent, your child will be placed in protective custody, and you may even be forced to surrender a newborn to Child Protective Services (CPS). Penalties can include jail sentencing beyond the loss of your child if you are a parent.
