If you are convicted of a sex crime in Virginia, you face not only a lengthy jail sentence and a large fine, but a lifetime of stigma as well. In fact, people will likely label you a sex offender for years, even after you have served your sentence. Just because you have been accused of a sex crime, however, doesn’t mean you don’t deserve a strong legal defense.
With over a decade of legal experience, including five years as a criminal prosecutor, I, attorney Wilson C. Pasley, understand the nuances of Virginia criminal law. I recognize that every case is different, so I will leverage my years of experience to help prepare an individualized defense strategy for the charges against you. I will work tirelessly to defend your rights both inside and outside the courtroom.
Commonly Prosecuted Sex Crimes In Virginia
Virginia law covers several types of sexual offenses, including:
- Statutory rape
- Aggravated sexual battery
- Forcible sodomy
- Carnal knowledge of a minor and child molestation
- Object sexual penetration
- Sexual battery
Most sexual offenses in Virginia are felonies, meaning you will face significant jail time if convicted, including life in prison in some cases. Even after you have served your time and paid your fines, your punishment may not be over. In fact, many sex crime convictions require registration as a sex offender. Given the serious nature of these offenses, it is always best to seek legal counsel as soon as possible.
