Sex Crimes – Philadelphia, PA Criminal Defense Attorneys

Kenny, Burns and McGill – Criminal Defense Attorney

Short of murder, there are few offenses with further-reaching consequences and penalties than sex crimes. Accusations and convictions of sexual offenses can result in a loss of employment opportunities and a ruined reputation, as well as significant penalties including jail times, fines, treatment programs, and a lifetime registration under Megan’s Law.

Sex crimes in Pennsylvania, as a general category, include many different offenses, such as:

  • Rape, statutory rape, and spousal rape
  • Internet sex charges
  • Sexual assault, indecent assault, and involuntary deviate sexual intercourse (IDSI)
  • Solicitation for prostitution
  • Deviate sexual behavior
  • Lewd conduct, indecent exposure, and lewd acts in public
  • Possession and/or distribution of child pornography

If you have been accused of a sex crime in Pennsylvania, it is important that you consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney immediately.
