If you're facing serious Pennsylvania sex offense charges, contact the criminal defense attorneys at Kope & Associates for reliable advice, personal attention, and dependable representation. Their seasoned attorneys have the experience to help you confront and resolve sex crime allegations.
Kope & Associates handle almost all sex offense cases, including, but never limited to:
- Sexual assault charges such as date rape, spousal rape, or acquaintance rape
- Indecent exposure, lewd conduct, and sex offenses involving minors
- Computer child pornography
- Online solicitation of a minor for sex
Child pornography and Internet solicitation cases are often charged under federal law and provide very harsh penalties. Even in cases where a federal law enforcement agent impersonated a minor in a chat room and encouraged the defendant to arrange a meeting under false pretenses, the criminal consequences are severe. Kope & Associates’ familiarity with federal criminal procedure and the emerging law in this area help them to aggressively defend these difficult cases.
Regarding sex offenses which involve allegations of rape or coercion between people who know one another, the experienced attorneys at Kope & Associates use forensic experts in appropriate cases. Experts can develop and present evidence as to the complaining witness's state of mind or psychological condition, where a consent defense can be supported by sound testimony.
Some accused in sex crime cases stand to lose a great deal if convicted. They can be fathers going through divorces, licensed professionals, teachers, and coaches. The attorneys at Kope & Associates will take full account of your circumstances so that any negotiated resolution will interfere as little as possible with a professional license, child custody considerations, or any other factor that bears upon your situation. These talented attorneys choose a given defense strategy not simply because it works, but because it works best in your particular circumstances.
If you or someone you love has been charged with a sex crime in Harrisburg, York, or surrounding areas of Pennsylvania, please contact Kope and Associates as soon as possible for a free consultation. They are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
