Sex Crimes Defense

Sex crimes whether the complaining witness is an adult or minor are some of the most serious crimes charged. The stigma attached to be charged with sex crimes is enormous. Often law enforcement contacts a suspect before any charges are filed because they are building charges against you. You need an aggressive and experienced sex crime defense attorney like me to defend you from the investigation phase through trial. Having an attorney involved from the investigation stage is imperative to a potential successful defense. I protect my clients aggressively and will provide the same to you.

What Are Some Common Sex Crimes?
  • Annoying or Molesting a Child
  • Child Molestation
  • Lewd and Lascivious Conduct
  • Oral Copulation

  • Sexual Battery

  • Internet Stings
What Are Some Tactics Law Enforcement Use?
  1. Law enforcement has a wide range of tactics they use to build a sex case. The two most common are:
  2. Interview where they say you are not under arrest and free to leave?
    • They may contact you at your home, work or ask you to come into their office. They will tell you that you are not under arrest and they just want to talk to you about some things. Keep this in mind, already at this stage, they have information about sex crimes and their sole purpose of talking to you is have you make incriminting statements that they will use against you. Do not fall into the trap that you will outsmart them or talk your way out of it. They will not accept you denying things. They will use emotional blackmail to get you to twist your words to what they want to hear. JUST DON'T TALK. You can refuse to talk to them and that cannot be used against you in the future. Tell them you want to speak with your attorney before talking to them. Then call me.
  3. Pre-text call
    • A pre-text call will come from someone you trust and/or have relationship with. This could be from the accuser, and yes they will even use a child to make the call. They will have told the caller to try to get you to admit to crimes. They will be listening and recording the call. They will have the caller use emotional blackmail to make you feel guilty and admit to things the cops want you to admit to. Bottom line, do not talk to anyone about accusations other than your attorney.

  3. Call my office. You need an experience sex crimes attorney from the first moment you are made aware of any accusations. Speaking with me gives you full attorney/client confidentiality, whether or not you retain my office to represent you.

Client Reviews
“Mr. Pabla represented me with my DUI case. He has excellent communication skills and always kept me informed. Mr. Pabla made sure I understood the process and my rights. He eased my mind through a very stressful situation. I highly recommend Mr. Pabla.” Gurpreet
“I am so happy with the service that I received from Param S. Pabla. Jarrett did a great job solving my legal issue and I can’t recommend him enough! He was able to do everything quickly, painlessly, and was ALWAYS available to talk when I needed him. If I ever need help again, I will definitely use him!" Boris
“Param was excellent in my court case of failure to stop at a stop sign. The officer could not see clearly because he was too far away. The officer insisted he could and said he had video but could not produce it at the trial. The officer then asked if he could suspend the trial to go get the video but the judge said he should have had plenty of time to get the video ready beforehand. Needless to say, the judge ruled in my favor and dismissed the case which enraged the officer. Pabla Param’s defense and cross examination skills were excellent and paramount in having the case dismissed. Highly recommended.” T.C.
“My husband and I needed to update everything -family trust, will, medical stuff. Param was really patient -answering all my questions -even when I asked them twice. He wanted to be sure I understood everything we were doing. All docs were sent to us so we could go through them on our own time before anything was finalized. I also liked when we were looking at medical stuff that he had a conversation with me about what I wanted and pointed out some things I didn’t think of.” Debbie
