Wood County Ohio Sexual Offender & Sexual Offense Crimes

Sex offenses are some of the most difficult cases to deal with. Here’s what the bible has to say about them: “A single witness shall not suffice against a person for any crime or for any wrong in connection with any offense that he has committed. Only on the evidence of two witnesses or of three witnesses shall a charge be established.” However, in America, many sex offenses – where there is no biological evidence – rely solely on the word of one person against another. That should not be enough. A scorned child, the “evil” stepparent, or an angry ex-spouse can be the cause of baseless sex offense charges. In Wood County, the government often alleges that the sex offense or offenses happened over a period of two or three years. That’s difficult to defend against – do you know where you were on a night in May 2 years ago? How can you establish an alibi? Unfortunately, many charged sex offenses simply never happened at all.

In Ohio, sex offenses range from “2907.02 Rape,” to “2907.03 Sexual battery, “ to “2907.04 Unlawful sexual conduct with minor.” Others – which also sound bad – are “2907.05 Gross sexual imposition” and “2907.06 Sexual imposition”. Importuning, 2907.07, means soliciting others for sex, while Voyeurism, 2907.08, basically means looking at others inappropriately. Last, Public indecency, 2907.09, of often charged when those leaving bars are caught peeing in the bushes by the police – in the act!
In almost all cases, sex offense convictions in Ohio require you to register as a sex offender. As you can imagine, registration carries wide-reaching and long-term consequences that are often devastating. I can advocate for you to attempt to get your sex offense charge reduced to a non-reporting offense.

Although every case is unique, I have had success defending individuals charged with serious sex offenses. For instance, I have gotten felony sex offenses reduced to misdemeanors.
