Sex Crimes

A Strategic Annapolis Sex Crime Defense Attorney to Defend Your Case

Seasoned attorney handling complex criminal matters in Maryland

Sex crimes are some of the most serious allegations you can face. Not only can they carry extensive penalties, but they also have long-lasting consequences for all aspects of your life. If convicted, you are forever branded as a sex offender, and, in most cases you must register as one for the rest of your life. This could result in public embarrassment, job loss, and lifelong stigma for you and your family. My name is Gill Andrew Cochran, and I provide my clients with the serious, tough defense that a sex crime allegation requires. At Drew Cochran, Attorney at Law, my clients receive trustworthy representation from an experienced Annapolis criminal defense attorney during a sex crime case.

Types of sex crime accusations and potential defense strategies

The state of Maryland recognizes many types of sex crimes. As your criminal defense attorney in Annapolis, I am prepared to offer a strong defense for a variety of sex crimes and other related legal matters, including:

The consequences of a sex crime conviction depend on the details of the case. Indecent exposure and unlawful sexual contact charges are less serious, with misdemeanor classifications. Sexual assault cases are more serious, depending on the degree of the alleged assault. A rape charge is the most serious type of sex crime under the law, and a conviction could result in life imprisonment.

Protecting your rights in Maryland courts

I get to know the unique details of each case. With that knowledge, combined with my familiarity with Maryland law, I have the ability to tailor a defense strategy that meets the needs of your specific case.

I may present a defense of consent, where I argue that the accuser consented to the sexual contact. I may also fight for your innocence by questioning whether any contact actually occurred. In some instances, the best strategy is to seek the lightest possible sentence. Whatever the case, I aggressively fight for my clients, and I never back down from a courtroom battle if it’s in my client’s best interest.

Don’t take the consequences of a sex crime conviction lightly. In addition to sex offender registry requirements, a felony on your record can keep you getting a job, owning firearms, and voting. To ensure the protection of your rights, it’s important to speak with a knowledgeable Annapolis sex crimes defense lawyer before making a statement to any party, including the police. If law enforcement tries to speak with you, use your right to remain silent and ask to speak to your attorney right away.
