Charges With Significant Social Stigma
Many sex crimes cases are tried in the court of public opinion before the accused even has his or her day in court. At Marinaro Law Firm, we will fight to limit your exposure to media scrutiny while shielding you from the full force of the criminal justice system.
You Deserve A Defender
While most Americans know and understand the phrase “innocent until proven guilty,” these words often fall by the wayside for sex crimes, depending on the severity of the charge. Our lawyers believe in this central tenet of the legal system and will aggressively fight to protect our clients through all stages of the legal process.
As skilled sex offense attorneys, we are fully prepared to defend clients facing numerous sex offenses, including:
- Sexual assault
- Indecent exposure
- Internet child pornography
- Sex with a minor
- Involuntary deviant sexual intercourse
The Walsh Act And Megan’s Law
Pennsylvania law has been modified to come into compliance with the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act (often referred to as the Walsh Act). This federal statute organizes sex offenders into three tiers, and requires individuals to update their whereabouts at intervals determined by the tier of their offense. Additionally, our firm remains mindful of the Megan’s Law requirements for public notification of sex offender registry status that goes with any type of guilty plea. The collateral consequences of these statutes can be devastating to an individual’s ability to seek employment or housing. We will aggressively protect your future and your exposure to these devastating consequences.
