Sex Crime Charges Can Be Beaten. Our Lawyers Have Done It.

At Marcilliat & Mills PLLC, we have successfully argued for dismissals of sex crime charges and won acquittals of sex offenses at trial. Our sex crimes defense lawyers have earned:

  • Dismissal of a first-degree statutory sex offense charge. Our client was accused of forcing his daughter to perform oral sex on him. We aggressively challenged every aspect of the state’s case through the use of experts and won dismissal of the statutory rape charge.
  • Dismissal of a statutory rape charge. Our client was accused of having sex with a female minor. Despite a positive identification of our client by the underage female as the man with whom she’d had sex, we were able to secure dismissal of the statutory rape charge. Our client faced only probation for a misdemeanor offense and avoided the sex offender registry.
  • Dismissal of sex offender restriction violations. Our client was accused of using social media despite a North Carolina law prohibiting registered sex offenders from using Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc. The social media violation was dismissed and our client avoided a six- to eight-month prison sentence.
  • Dismissal of indecent liberties with a minor. Our client was accused by his two stepdaughters (ages 13 and 15) of sexual assault. The behavior was reported to a school counselor, who reported the issue to Child Protective Services. We launched an investigation and conducted interviews with the accusers, who later admitted they had lied about the assault because they were upset with their stepfather for disciplining them.
  • Probation: Our client had no previous criminal record, and was accused of breaking into a neighbor’s house and sexually assaulting her. We identified major holes in the prosecution’s case, and our client was allowed to plead guilty to a lesser charge of Misdemeanor Assault on a Female, and his Breaking and Enterting charges were dismissed. Had he been convicted of the original charges, he would have been required to register as a sex offender for 30 years. We helped him avoid this.
  • No charges filed: Our client was accused of inappropriately touching a child for whom he used to babysit. Our client was accused by the child of inappropriately touching the child and siblings. We were able to interview family members who denied that anything nefarious ever happened, and ultimately Child Protective Services closed their investigation and charges were never filed.
  • No charges filed: Our client was accused of using his cell phone to secretly record under a female’s skirt. We arranged for him to be evaluated by a licensed psychologist, and based on the results of that evaluation, no charges were filed.

In addition to getting sex crimes charges dropped, our firm has been able to help clients completely avoid sex crimes charges when our legal representation was secured early on in the investigation. Our Charlotte sex crimes defense lawyers have kept charges from being filed in cases involving:

  • Indecent liberties with a child
  • Distribution of child pornography via a P2P network
  • A second-degree forcible sex offense
  • Possession of child pornography

These are just a few examples of the successes we have had fighting sex crimes allegations on behalf of individuals facing serious prison time and being forced to register for up to life as a sex offender based on charges of a state or federal sex crime in North Carolina.
