Capable And Thorough Sex Crimes Defense Lawyers


For nearly 100 years, the Law Offices of Howard & Howard has provided tough criminal defense to the people of Virginia. In that time, we have defended a countless number of clients in the commonwealth against some of the toughest charges, including sex crimes. We work to find positive solutions to sex-related charges, including getting the charges reduced and dismissed. In cases where pretrial resolutions are not successful, we have successfully tried these types of cases before a jury.

Our experienced attorneys are prepared to defend you against any type of sex-related charge, including:

  • Rape, including statutory rape and date rape
  • Aggravated sexual assault/battery
  • Possession of child pornography
  • Child sexual abuse
  • Prostitution and solicitation
  • Solicitation of a minor
  • Internet sex crimes

Our Proven Sex Charges Defense Strategy

Sex charges are very sensitive for everyone involved. We will treat your case with discretion. After handling thousands of these cases, we know how to prepare a proper defense. A meticulous investigation is the only way to ensure that you are not the victim of an injustice.

  • We will interview all witnesses and relevant communications, including text messages, call logs and IP addresses
  • We analyze DNA tests and other scientific evidence
  • When necessary, we engage some of Virginia’s finest expert witnesses to review the evidence and provide testimony

Once we have thoroughly investigated your case, we will prepare a sound strategy for your defense. We will make sure your rights are preserved. If the police violated your rights at any point in their investigation, we will bring those incidents to light. We can get evidence obtained by illegal methods thrown out of court, greatly affecting your chances of a positive result.
