Criminal Defense of Sex Crimes Allegations
In North Carolina, courts intensely prosecute sex related crimes and apply considerable pressure to see harsh punishments imposed on those convicted. As a former prosecutor, Thomas Amburgey is a criminal defense attorney that defends sexually based crimes and understands the weaknesses of the state’s case. We will protect your rights, examine and challenge the evidence, and always strive to achieve the best result for you.
Sex related offenses are serious charges and being a target of an investigation, can be a stressful and intimidating experience. The social consequences of just being accused of a sexual offense can affect your reputation and psychological well-being. At Amburgey Law, we are dedicated to providing confidential representation when you need it most. Some of the areas relating to sex based crimes are:
- Abuse and Sexual Assault
- Indecent exposure, lewd and lascivious conduct
- Indecent liberties with a juvenile
- Internet Sex Crimes
- Pimping, pandering, and prostitution
- Rape and Date Rape
- Sexual Harassment
- Statutory rape (sex with a minor)
Thomas is a dedicated criminal lawyer with in-depth knowledge of the laws and other defense strategies associated with sex based crimes. Because of the potential penalties and life altering consequences related to sex related offenses, those being investigated, or charged, should not manage their defense on their own. Do not try to handle the situation by explaining things to the police. They are not going to help you, and the punishments imposed for sexual crimes are severe and may include:
- Victim Restitution
- Mandatory Rehabilitation
- Large Fines
- Sex Offender Registry
In North Carolina, unlike other States, the Court may also order victim restitution, which is, in addition to any penalty authorized by law, the defendant is ordered to make restitution to the victim, or the victim's estate, for any injuries or damages sustained during the commencement of the crime. Several factors are considered when allocated restitution and the non-payment of the restitution could be a probation violation. There are many components to be considered during the sentencing stage of criminal proceedings, and you need an experienced criminal attorney to protect your interests throughout the entire process.
Attorney Thomas Amburgey is an experienced criminal defense attorney and accomplished litigator that provides efficient and effective legal representation of sexually based crimes. We do not place judgment on the situation and are focused on defending your rights. We understand the severity of the charges and handle each matter with extreme confidence. We work closely with our clients to develop a creative defense strategy and seek the best possible outcome for each case. If you are under investigation for or charged with a sex-based crime, it is imperative that you seek experienced legal counsel immediately. Call us for a consultation today.
