Schaumburg Juvenile Sex Crime Defense Attorney
You may be shocked to learn your child is under police investigation. As a parent, your first instinct may be to call law enforcement and get to the bottom of the sex crime charges. But, the police are not on your side. Their job is to conduct an investigation and possibly make criminal charges. Anything you say could put your student’s future in jeopardy.
Over 15 Years Handling High-Stake Charges
Allegations of sexting, child pornography or sexual assault not only carry life-altering penalties but can also have a negative social stigma. People in your community may be quick to assume your student is guilty long before criminal charges are formally made. Our Schaumburg juvenile sex crime defense lawyer, Steven Roach, knows how to help your family navigate the sensitive nature of these charges.
As a former state prosecutor, Steve Roach has worked on the other side of the criminal justice system. He has extensive experience defending sex crime charges against adults and juveniles, and helps his clients navigate through the very complex Sex Offender Registration Act. Contact us to learn how he can protect your rights, when the stakes are high.
Defending Against Juvenile Sex Crime Allegations
Sex crime charges are fact-specific. No two cases are exactly the same. Attorney Steven R. Roach offers a comprehensive approach focused on understanding the nature of the charges against your child. He has access to computer experts, including network specialists and Internet experts who can be invaluable in uncovering any holes in the prosecution’s case against your student.
The computer forensics involved may show that another computer user hacked into your student’s Facebook page, Twitter account or another social media site. A computer user may have stolen the IP address on your family computer and illegally downloaded the pornographic images at the time your child was using the computer.
A criminal investigation may also help us understand if your student lent his or her smartphone to another student at the time sexting or another illegal offense occurred. Juvenile criminal charges can be highly complicated, but Steve Roach has the skills and legal resources to uncover any evidence that can be used in your child’s favor. He is also prepared to fight for a dismissal based on a lack of evidence.
