EXPERIENCED BOISE ATTORNEYS DEFENDING CLIENTS CHARGED WITH SEX CRIMES
More than 28 years of direct and candid advice for those facing sex crime charges
Just being accused of rape or another serious sex crime can ruin your life: there is no stigma more damaging than a sexual assault charge. It can compromise your job, family, freedom, friendships and more. Even if you’re found not guilty, it’s a charge that can haunt you as you try to move on with your life. You need a strong criminal defense attorney like those with the Cox Law Firm to fend off this assault on your character. We advise people charged with a wide array of sex offenses in Idaho.
Sex crime charges have serious repercussions
Whether you’re facing charges of rape, sexual assault or indecent exposure, the penalties of a sex crime conviction are severe. Certain crimes carry prison sentences; others force you to pay fines. But in every case, you’re marked as a sex offender by the government.
If you are convicted of a sex crime, the state mandates that you register as a sex offender in Idaho. And you must re-register your home address every year for the rest of your life. That information is a matter of public record, and your name is placed on a registry that is searchable by anyone. Thanks to the Idaho statutory rape law, an 18-year-old can be convicted of statutory rape for having consensual sex with a 17-year-old partner. If you’re 18 and have sex with a partner who is 16 or younger, you could spend up to life in prison.
Sex crime defense in a number of areas

Understand your options and protect your future
Sex crime cases often rely strictly on witness testimony. When the only evidence against you is someone else’s word, it is critical that you obtain a criminal defense lawyer who has the experience to thwart lying witnesses, false testimony and police misconduct. Do not speak to anyone, especially law enforcement, about any charged or potentially charged sex crime until you have spoken with an attorney from the Cox Law Firm.
We will be clear with you on your prospects for resolution. You’ll be informed of your options so you can properly deal with any criminal charges before they do more damage than necessary.
