The penalties for sex crimes can go far beyond spending time behind bars. If you are convicted, you will also be required to register with the Sex Offender Registry, which can put severe - and lifelong - restrictions on where you can work, where you can live and with whom you can associate.
A large percentage of these cases go to trial, so if you have been accused of a sex crime in Iowa, it is vital to engage the help of a Cedar Rapids sex crime attorney who has significant trial experience. Attorney Victoria Cole, founder of the M. Victoria Cole Law Firm P.C., is a former prosecutor who has handled numerous jury trials. She is ready and able to defend you against charges of:
- Sexual abuse (first, second and third degree)
- Sexual exploitation of minors
- Child pornography
- Child sex abuse
- Indecent exposure
- Lascivious acts
Don't Let the Evidence in Your Favor Disappear
From the very beginning of the case, there will be a heightened need to preserve all available evidence. Such evidence may include anything from cellphone records and text messages to bedsheets or photos. If you have a lawyer who takes a halfhearted approach to these types of cases, you may find yourself in a situation where any evidence in your favor has been erased before you can use it.
You need someone on your team who knows what to look for and how to preserve it, and our attorney can do just that. Ms. Cole also calls upon expert witnesses to give testimony on particular points that may help improve your chances at trial.
