What Is Sexual Assault In Virginia?
Sexual assault definitions in Virginia statutes include the following:
- Sexual abuse of minors
- Indecent liberties with children
- Aggravated sexual battery; sexual battery
- Statutory rape
- Crimes involving digital images of minors
- Prostitution and solicitation of prostitutes
If you are accused of any such actions, you may be:
- Charged with a crime
- Convicted of a crime
- Required to have your name in a sex offender registry for years
- Sued by the alleged victim(s) in a civil case
Your legal status and the negative consequences of your case may also be affected by your relationship with the accuser. If you are a teacher, counselor, health care provider, religious worker or family member, you need aggressive as well as sensitive defense. If our sex crimes defense attorneys work on your case, we will take all possible actions to protect your reputation, keep your name out of the news and otherwise safeguard your rights.
We may find evidence that your accuser’s credibility cannot be trusted. This is one example of a defense strategy that may turn your case around in your favor.
