A Trial Lawyer You Can Trust

Sensitive Defense Against Sex Crime Allegations

Sex offense charges are especially sensitive. This isn’t only because conviction for certain sex crimes can land you on California’s Sex Offender Registry. It is also because even without a conviction, the mere accusation against you of a sex offense can seriously harm your reputation and job prospects.

Attorney Wisehart is a former prosecutor who has earned a specialist certification in criminal law from The State Bar of California.

What Happened In Your Case?

We know there is surely an important back story to the incident or incidents that led to the charges against you. Rest assured, Derek P. Wisehart is an experienced defense lawyer and will make sure your side of the story gets heard.

Our firm can provide skilled, sensitive defense against any type of sex offense charge. This includes:

  • Child pornography In the age of internet, it is incredible how many images can be loaded – often innocently — onto digital devices. This can result, for example, from a provocative picture sent by a teen who was sexting via smartphone.
  • Solicitation of a minor California law prohibits certain sexually oriented actions directed toward juveniles. If you are a coach or some other adult who has gotten into trouble for allegedly improper advances, we will help you respond to the accusations.
  • Sexual assault Allegations of sexual assault sometimes go along with accusations of domestic abuse. In other cases, there may be claims of date rape or statutory rape. Our firm has the experience and proven litigation skills to defend your rights and interests effectively.
