Allegations of a sexual offense do not have to be true for them to be damaging. A person who is accused of a sex crime, even if the charges are eventually dropped or the person is acquitted, will still face the social stigma of such an allegation and the damage to his or her reputation.
If you have been accused of rape, solicitation of a minor, possession of child pornography or another sex crime in California, you need an experienced defense attorney on your side. San Mateo criminal defense lawyer Charles B. Smith, a former police officer and former prosecutor, has more than 25 years of experience. Our firm will stand on your side and help you tell your side of the story.
