Sexual offenses against a child/minor can include any number of the following offenses:

Because society wants to protect the most vulnerable among us, these charges carry extremely stiff penalties that will last a lifetime. Not only will a person serve a long jail sentence if convicted, they will need to sign up for the Virginia sex offender registry, impacting future employment and ostracizing a person from society. We understand how serious these charges are, and will work diligently to clear your good name.

Our attorneys have dealt with serious sexual offenses involving children/minors and will work tirelessly to prove your innocence. Our attorneys will listen to the facts of your case without judging and give you sound advice on how best to proceed. By working with an attorney with the knowledge and experience to understand this difficult time, you can have a friend during a very trying process.

At the Law Offices of Patrick N. Anderson and Associates, we know that innocent people are accused everyday of these serious offenses, and we will work to prove your innocence. As children are exposed to more sexually explicit content on television and in movies, they may make accusations that are not true based on seeing this subject matter. Also, because children are susceptible to manipulation, it is entirely possible for them to be manipulated into making a false allegation. A jealous parent, for instance, may twist a child’s words or attempt to plant a false memory in the child’s head. This can have serious implications for the accused.

We work with leading experts in the field, including psychologists and criminologists, to find any holes in an accusation. We will aggressively pursue all avenues of defense in order to cast reasonable doubt on the state’s case. We will explore every avenue in finding a competent defense for any accusation of a  sex crime involving a child or minor.

Because the defense of these crimes involves so many pieces, it is vital to contact an attorney immediately after you have been accused. The sooner an attorney in retained, the sooner we can begin to collect evidence and investigate the charges against you. Time is of the essence, so the sooner you can contact a lawyer, the better your chances at a successful outcome for your particular case.

The attorneys at the Law Offices of Patrick N. Anderson and Associates are here to help against these serious charges. Our attorneys will not judge – our attorneys will only provide you with the best representation possible in the quest to clear your name.
