Sex Crime Attorney in St. Louis, MO
Fighting St. Charles, Chesterfield & St. Louis Sex Offense Charges
Sex offenses are some of the most strictly punished crimes in Missouri and can have wide-ranging consequences for the individuals charged. The social stigma a sex crime carries with it and the potential registration requirements accompanying a sexual offense can be even more devastating than the potential criminal penalties one faces. The only thing to do in the face of sex crime allegations is to involve an attorney who can preserve your rights.
The criminal justice system and U.S. Constitution offer a number protections to people charged with or accused of crimes, including sex offenses. At Cavanagh & Associates, we believe in asserting these protections to the fullest extent. St. Louis sex crime lawyer Jack Cavanagh has been working as an attorney since 1962, bringing well over 50 years of experience to his clients’ criminal cases. He also spent 4 years as a prosecutor in St. Louis County, giving him an understanding of how the “other side” thinks and works. This is an invaluable tool in the defense of those accused of sex offenses.

Sex Offender Registration Requirements
How do I know if I have to register as a sex offender? This is one of the first questions any individual charged with a sex offense will ask, but the answer requires a thorough knowledge of the complexities of both state and federal registration laws and will depend on the specific facts of your case. The majority of sex-related offenses require registration as a sex offender – for life. This will dictate where you can live and work, and your information will be public, available to anyone looking for registered sex offenders in your area.
The severe consequences of sex offender registration make it all the more important to involve a St. Louis sex crime attorney who can protect your interests. At Cavanagh & Associates, we have experience handling cases involving sexual offenses and also federal sex crime cases, and we are dedicated to aggressively fighting for our clients in court.
