Sex Crime Defense

When an investigation takes place regarding a sexual offense, many important facts are often overlooked. These are often the details of the case that can be used to prove the defendant innocent. There are many different sex crime offenses that can take place and will require substantial investigation. Some of the most common sex crimes our firm handles include:

  • Child pornography (S.C. Code §16-15-410)
  • Lewd act upon a minor (S.C. Code §16-15-140)
  • Sexual battery (S.C. Code §16-3-615)
  • Rape (S.C. Code §16-3-652)
  • Prostitution (S.C. Code §16-15-100)
  • Indecent exposure (S.C. Code §15-15-130)

The penalties that you face for allegations of a sex crime conviction can be very severe. Some offenses can even lead to a life sentence in prison. At Bauer & Metro, P.C., we understand that false charges occur. The charges of sexual abuse may have been the result of someone's false word, whether on purpose or as an accident. When children are involved, the statements that they make can influence the result of the case. No matter what the reason for your charges, we are prepared to provide you with a strong defense.
