Defending Clients Facing Sex Crime Charges
Attorney Dwyer is an aggressive criminal defense lawyer who has defended clients in more than 150 jury trials. She has a firm understanding of how sex crimes are handled by law enforcement and prosecutors in California. Her detailed focus protects clients by finding any loopholes in the case against them. She is well-prepared to defend you or a loved one from serious sex crime allegations, involving:
- Date rape
- Sexual abuse
- Sexual assault
- Statutory rape
- Child pornography
- Solicitation of a minor
- Criminal sexual misconduct
Consent is never a defense in sex crimes involving minors. Attorney Dwyer acts as a shield to protect clients from saying anything to law enforcement when investigated or charged with a sex crime. Anything you say to explain your side of the story could instead be used as evidence against you.
Attorney Dwyer works closely with forensic computer experts to identify if and when child porn images were viewed or deleted on a computer. This helps us create a strong defense based on whether a roommate or child viewed the images on your computer. We also work with Internet specialists to show if the images were accidently downloaded on the computer but never viewed.
