Lifetime sex offender registration, jail or prison time, fines, probation and a ruined reputation – just a few of the consequences of a sex crime conviction in California. The Law Office of Russ Wyatt can help if you have been accused of any type of sex offense, no matter how hopeless your case may seem.
An experienced defense lawyer at our firm can review the particular circumstances surrounding your sex crime charges to determine how we can best represent you. Often a case may be based primarily on the alleged victim’s testimony or recollection of events. When physical evidence is lacking, your lawyer can use this to your benefit in ensuring that your guilt cannot be proven beyond a reasonable doubt in court. We understand that your reputation and your freedom are on the line, and we will fight to protect those things.
Our firm handles sex crime charges throughout Sacramento, including those that involve:

Defending Sex Crime Charges
California law is harsh on those facing sex crime charges. Not only do prison terms and fines apply, but even a minor sex crime conviction, such as indecent exposure, will result in mandatory registration as a sex offender, which is a lifetime label. This will affect your ability to get work, loans, and professional licenses and may even dictate where you live and work.
