Sex crimes are some of the most harshly prosecuted crimes in the federal and state courts. If you are being investigated for or have been charged with a sex crime, not only are you facing jail or prison time, your name may be listed on the sex offender registry, and your reputation could be permanently tarnished. You need a lawyer with the skill and experience to help you protect your rights and your future.
I am Thomas M. Bell, and since 1986, I have represented people in Jacksonville and throughout Northeastern Florida who have been charged with or are being investigated for a wide range of sex crimes, from sexual battery to child pornography.
If you are being investigated for a sex crime, you have a right to seek skilled legal counsel before speaking with law enforcement. Call 904-354-0062 to schedule a free consultation with me.
Vigorous Representation in Sex Crime Charges
A sex crime conviction could have lifelong implications on your freedom and future. You may also be facing substantial fines and a lengthy prison sentence. Additionally, with your name on the sex offender registry, you may have restrictions placed on where you can live and work. That is why it is so important to work with an attorney who has experience handling these complex cases.
I have defended people against a wide spectrum of sex crimes in the state and federal courts, including:
- Sexual abuse
- Sexual battery
- Internet sex crimes
- Lewd molestation
- Sex trafficking
Defenses in Sex Crime Charges
In sex crime charges, confrontation and hearsay issues are important as oftentimes the evidence consists of out-of-court statements made by witnesses whose credibility is suspect. My skills at identifying these critical issues can help you in court.
Additionally, my reputation as a thorough and experienced litigator will not only benefit you at trial, it can also play an important role in negotiations. Because prosecutors know that I do not back down from trial, this gives me an opportunity to help you in negotiations. However, if a reasonable plea bargain is not possible, I will aggressively pursue justice for you in the courtroom. As a solo practitioner, you can count on me to personally handle every aspect of your case.
