Sex Crimes

Pennsylvania Sex Crime Defense Lawyer

At the Law Offices of V. Erik Petersen, I am experienced at handling many different types of sex crimes. As a former Assistant District Attorney, I take an aggressive approach when defending a person charged with a sex crime. I stand up for my clients' rights while thoroughly investigating each and every aspect of the matter. I utilize a vast variety of investigative techniques in order to determine the validity of the allegations upon which the charges pending against you are based. I fully understand that most sex crime charges are a case of "he said" versus "she said". I know how to analyze the different versions and expose the truth. I also understand that a person charged with a sex crime starts "behind the eight ball" due to the stigma these types of charges have associated with them. I make every effort to neutralize this stigma so that my client gets a fair trial.

I provide comprehensive and aggressive representation to clients facing a range of sex offense charges, including:

    * Rape / date rape
    * Statutory rape
    * Child molestation cases
    * Sexual assault
    * Spousal sexual assault
    * Sexual battery
    * Prostitution
    * Solicitation
    * Indecent exposure

Internet Sex Crimes
Nearly every home in America is connected to the Internet. Due to this high level of use by individuals to connect with others, there has been an increase in internet related sex crimes. I confidently represent individuals that have been accused of these types of crimes. There are many different types of internet sex crime matters, including an adult meeting an underage individual in person that they believed to be of age.

With my help, it may be possible to discuss a wide range of possible defenses to your sex crime charges. I can also aid in obtaining information regarding the alleged victim's background to determine if he or she has a history of lodging false sex crime accusations.
