Attorney Rowdy Williams has successfully tried sex crime cases including the charge of child molesting. If you are charged with a sex crime, it is imperative that you seek high quality legal representation immediately. Important things can occur at the beginning of a case that can affect the outcome at trial

Getting a Not-Guilty Verdict

Winning at trial in sex crime cases demand a superior strategy and solid jury trial experience. What motive does the alleged victim of rape have to lie? Did an ex-spouse tell a minor child to lie? Could there be a different perpetrator that the alleged victim is scared to tell the authorities about? Is any actual evidence that a sex act was committed (any DNA)? Are the witnesses credible? A skilled criminal lawyer can find the answers to these important questions via depositions. In Indiana, a criminal attorney can put the prosecutor’s witnesses under oath and question them the prior to a jury trial in the case. Often-times this is the first instance that the accuser has to answer tough questions and have his or her truthfulness questioned.

Examples of Sex Crime Defenses:

  1. Consent
  2. Mistaken identity
  3. Accident or mistake
  4. False accusation
  5. Lack of intent
  6. Mistaken belief as to age

What are the Sentences for Child Molesting and Sexual Misconduct in Indiana?

Sex crimes carry stiff sentences, which is why taking your case to a jury trial must be seriously considered. Sex crimes convictions also result in a requirement of registering on the sex offender registry.

The possible sentence for sex crimes in Indiana are as follows:

  • Child Molesting: Level 3 felony, but elevates to a Level 1 felony if committed by a person at least 21 years of age (3 to 16 years in prison
  • Sexual Misconduct with a Minor: Level 5 Felony, but elevates to a Level 4 felony if committed by a person at least 21 years of age. (2 to 12 years in prison)
  • Rape: Level 3 Felony, but elevates to a Level 1 Felony is committed by using or threatening deadly force (20 to 40 years in prison)
  • Child Exploitation: Level 5 felony (1 to 6 years in prison)
  • Child Pornography: Level 6 felony (Six months to 2 ½ years in jail)
  • Sexual Battery: Level 6 Felony (Six months to 2 ½ years in jail)

Evidence and Polygraph Examinations

Sex crimes may have scientific evidence, such as DNA or a rape kit; The evidence also may just consist of the alleged victim’s testimony. It is very common for law enforcement investigations into sex crimes to begin with an attempt convince the accuse to take a polygraph test. Polygraph examinations are very unreliable and are not admitted in court unless both the State and Defendant consent. Police will routinely attempt try to convince an unrepresented Defendant that the polygraph is in their best interest. Taking a polygraph is usually a mistake. If you are a suspect in a sex crime, you should never take a polygraph examination without the advice of an experienced criminal lawyer. Furthermore, it is almost never advisable for a Defendant that is facing a sex crime charge to give a statement to the police in the course of their investigation.

If you need a criminal defense attorney who has won jury trials in child molesting and other sex charges, call Rowdy today for a free initial consultation. At your conference, he will discuss the facts of your case and how to develop an aggressive litigation strategy to win your case.

TERRE HAUTE THEFT LAWYER-TERRE HAUTE ROBBERY LAWYER

Sex Crimes

THEFT

Theft is the crime of “knowingly or intentionally exerting unauthorized control over property of another person, with intent to deprive the other person of any part of its value or use.”

In other words, theft occurs when you unlawfully take property that belongs to another person with the intent to deprive them of it.

Penalties for Theft?

The penalties for a theft offense depends on the value of the property involved in the crime.

  • Property Valued at Less Than $750
  • When property is less than $750, the theft offense is classified as a Class A Misdemeanor (0 days to 1 year)
  • When property is valued between $750 and $49,999, the theft offense is classified as a Level 6 Felony (6 months to 2 ½ years)

ROBBERY

Robbery is not the same as Theft. Robbery is defined as using force or the threat of force; or putting the other person in fear.

The offense is a Level 5 Felony (1 year to 6 year sentence). The offense is escalated to a Level 3 Felony (3 year to 16 year sentence) if it is committed while armed with a deadly weapon; It is a Level 2 Felony (10 year to 30 year sentence) if it is committed while armed with a deadly weapon; It is a Level 1 Felony (20 year to 40 year sentence) if the crime results in serious bodily injury to the victim.

Breaking and entering involves using stealth or forceful means to enter a place that you do not have permission to enter. This can be done by picking a lock, taking a key, or breaking a door or window. If you break and enter into someone’s home without intending to commit a felony or theft therein, you have committed residential entry, which is a separate felony offense punishable by half a year to two-and-a-half years in prison.

Burglary is a Level 4 felony if the building is someone’s dwelling or home, which the sentence is two years to twelve years. Burglary is a Level 3 felony if another person is injured, which the sentence is three years to 16 years. Burglary is a Level 2 felony if either you are armed with a deadly weapon or you cause serious bodily injury to someone, which the sentence is 10 years to 30 years.
