Sexual Violence Offenses

Areas of Practice > Sexual Violence Offenses

Sex crimes cover a broad category of offenses that involve unwanted or nonconsensual sexual contact.

These crimes range from unwanted sexual touching on the outside of one’s clothing to forced sexual penetration. Sex offenses are among the most terrible and prejudicial crimes known to the law. Convicted offenders are often sentenced to lengthy prison terms. Convicted offenders, once released from jail, are also often subjected to registering as a sex offender for the rest of their lives. Registering as a sex offender requires notification by offenders to local law enforcement agencies. Many times, convicted offenders will be referred to as Sex Offenders for the rest of their lives. Restrictions may also apply such as visiting or residing near schools or being around children.

Merely being charged with a Sex Crime can have devastating consequences. These include, but are not limited to, being discriminated against in your community; fired from your job and denied future employment opportunities; denial of housing; and other adverse consequences. Therefore, if you, or someone you know, is charged with Sex Offense, it is extremely important to get the help from experienced attorneys such as Anthony Bruno & Peter Schoenthal.

Accused of a Sexual Violence Offense?

You need a reliable defense lawyer who will stand up for your rights and protect your freedom. At Bruno & Schoenthal, we have the knowledge and experience to fight for you.

Our Approach

At Bruno & Schoenthal, we believe that representing clients begins and ends with total preparation.

We also believe that trial is often your best course of action. By preparing a case for trial from the beginning, you leave no stone unturned. When you approach a case this way you often find facts or defenses that can lead to your charges being dismissed or allow you to have a stronger position when negotiating with the government. If you or your attorney is unprepared, there’s no way you can expect a positive outcome in court. That’s why when we approach a case, our first step is to begin fully preparing for trial so you get a complete representation. Unlike other firms who assign a single lawyer to each client, we work together on every single case and we believe in a client-centered approach. This means you will get the benefit of our combined experience and problem solving skills.

By working together, we can develop strategies and initiatives that will help us be successful in court.
